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.
The subject of Picado models is as you know discussed hereThuy Tran wrote: ↑Sat Jun 24, 2017 11:00 amHi everybody ,
I'm a new one in the forum . May I have a question to all of you and hope yr knowledge and expertise will hepl ?
Why the picado concierto c1 is less desirable than the model 60 ? Is it because of the price or playability ? And can people expect a better sound from C1 since it is much more expensive ?
