The Cocobolo-concert,

a real Rosewood.

Traditional, but with a contemporary design. And what can wood be nice! One of my first models. Inspired by the famous master guitar builders from Spain, but with their own vision with regard to the braces on the top. This guitar has a nice warm bass with a long sustain and sparkling high that over the whole area of tone is evenly and fully balanced.

“What a sweet and sensitive sound comes out of this guitar. You notice that there are many more qualities in the guitar.
The guitar has a lot of potential.” H. K.

The standard dimensions of a Ariz-H guitar are:

– 65 cm Scale.

– Total length 98.5 cm.

– Length of the body 48.5 cm.

– Width of the body bottom 37.5 cm.

– Width of the body top 28 cm.
– Waist 24 cm.

– Thickness of the body 9.5 cm.

– Width of the finger board at topnut 54 mm.

– Width of the finger board at 12th fret 64 mm.

The wood for guitars is personally selected by Ramon Riemersma and he only uses high-quality wood and parts.

An important process during the construction of a guitar to keep the quality of the wood in top shape.
Therefore any Riemersma guitars are built exclusively at the correct humidity and temperature.

Very exclusive classical concert guitar. Sound is very tight, balanced, with a lot of character and with a good balance. From this guitar a series is created, the Ariz-H and R. …


“Extended played at this stunning guitar and this definitely tastes for more. Beautiful and good guitar. The guitar is beautiful and sounds balanced and with a lot of character. ” H. Koot

“Ramon creates a beautifully shaped instrument, error free and manually. He experimentally in woods and in the sound box is the secret of the singing bar structure, inspired by the Hauser formula. So you get a balanced instrument with an intensive focus on the low. The E and A strings give a sound, that you can compare with a fretless bass. The total balance sheet, including projection, has the sound of a piano. I do not know as much as sound from a classical guitar.”


It is possible to build a Ariz-R by Ramon Riemersma with many possibilities and options available, so that it is exactly as your want him to have. Think of a broader or narrower neck, another scale, the thickness of the body of a finger board with a radius.
