This very Ryan used to belong to our own Al Petteway, Grammy Winning guitarist and the artist you hear recording most of our sound clips. In fact he recorded it on his famous 'Shades of Blue' record. Needless to say it is an OUTSTANDING RYAN GUITAR. They don't come any better for materials, tone and downright mojo. Years at Al's fingertips would make any guitar sound great, but a Brazilian/Cedar Ryan with top notch woods, Abalone upgrades, pickup and Calton case.... lookout!

1997 Ryan Mission Grand Concert - Grand Concert Acoustic Guitar Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"Kevin's Mission is my favorite model of his. It's very balanced and well suited for fingerstyle. This one has a beautiful, rich voice with fuller trebles than some Ryans, probably because Al Petteway put a million notes through this one. Still in wonderful condition, played in but truly cared for, this is a real find... a Ryan with fine provenance." - Paul Heumiller

"This guitar was once mine. I used it to record my CD "Shades of Blue" and it is featured on the cover. It's one of the best sounding and playing Ryan Mission Grands I've seen and I would recommend it to anyone who likes a guitar that is set up perfectly and has had all of the kinks worked out. It has all of the extras that Kevin offers in a high end guitar and should hold its value well." - Al Petteway
