In a strict definition, of course the Ramirez 1A would be considered a "factory" guitar. I am not of the camp that believes factory is all that derogatory. Put it this way, I have had numerous luthier instruments come and go and I still have my Ramirez guitars. So, I think that speaks to something. Just because one person built it doesn't mean it's better.Jacek A.

If so - what about Jose Ramirez model 1A ? does it also fall into category of "factory guitars" ?
Some higher models of Picado were signed - beside what we see at the paper label - by their builder - CP (Carlos Prat) or AG (Angel Genis) on wooden element inside the box. This is exactly how Ramirez 1A were signed by their builders.
