Practically brand new, this 2015 Paradiso Grand Concert from Kevin Ryan is everything you could hope for out of a medium-sized fingerstyle guitar: flawless articulation, consistent balance across the registers, glassy playability--and that's just for starters. Part of Ryan's signature sound is a great balance between warmth and clarity, which this Paradiso exhibits handsomely; passages in Standard, DADGAD, or even Cadd9 have a delicious color in the middle registers that fills out the voice and offsets the sparkle of the treble strings for an even response.
If you're looking to record, this Paradiso is an excellent choice! When the glitter of Paua Abalone is used to delineate the Malaysian Blackwood back and sides from the European Spruce top, the result is gorgeous, elegant. Of course, the arm bevel with Kevin's "Acoustic Flutes" doesn't hurt, either!

"Want a new Ryan but don't want to wait? This Paradiso is practically untouched, the closest you'll get to brand new without the original plastic packaging! The voice is excellently balanced for fingerstyle; really, you can't go wrong here." - Paul Heumiller
"I like Ryan's Paradiso because the body size is smaller and the tone more focused. It still has the warmth that Ryan guitars are known for but with a bit more presence in the mids and highs. " - Al Petteway
