We've got another powerful offering from the golden past of Kevin Ryan's workshop today: a custom Mission Grand Concert from 1998 in African Blackwood and Sitka Spruce. The warmth and color imparted by this dynamite pair suits the GC body perfectly for a voice at ease with flatpicked solos or lush fingerstyle arrangements. We're talking about an extremely versatile instrument, folks, driven hard or with a gentler touch this Ryan sings!

Ringing in the rosette is something unexpected for Ryan guitars; not the usual Abalone but rare and glittering Brown Lip Pearl! In DADGAD, DADFAD, Open G or Standard, this Mission Grand Concert delivers rich bass notes and round, shimmery trebles that envelop the player. And when not in use this Ryan is supremely protected by its Calton flight case!

1998 Ryan Mission Grand Concert -  Acoustic Guitar Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"One of my favorite models of Ryan guitars, this one has some age on it which enhances the tone and the looks, but it's still in pristine condition. It plays perfectly and has that distinctive balance and projection that Ryan is known for. Plenty of bass and power, but trebles that are forward and strong as well. The was has serious upgrades that make both the voice and look sublime and beautiful. " - Paul Heumiller

"This is very similar to one I used to own which was a truly great guitar. The late '90s were good years for guitars from Kevin Ryan and Jim Olson. Maybe it's just the age, but each one that I've played from that era really stands out as being excellent in every way.
"
- Al Petteway
