What a great day to be alive! Playing this 2010 Paradiso Grand Concert from Kevin Ryan is sure to put a smile to your lips and some tasty tunes to your fingertips. The perfect size for someone who wants a big ole' voice in a medium-small package, the Paradiso is lively, responsive, and a breeze to play. This is one of only a few Mahogany Ryans we've ever seen, and we gotta say that Kevin does Mahogany right: there's a bit more bark and woody edge than his other guitars, and that translates into a very energetic tone and added verve to your playing.
Great for fingerpicked blues! But you can pull off just about any style in style with this 2010 Paradiso, and the Adirondack Spruce top will keep projection at the forefront. This guitar plays like butter melts: sizzling in your hands with the fast action like grease in the pan. When you're ready to mount up for amplified performance, this Ryan comes with a K&K Pure Western Mini; one of our favorite passive pickups of all time!

"There's a bit more crackle in the bass than many Ryans, and I like it! This Paradiso's an excellent work horse for a discerning guitarist who needs their guitar to look as good as it sounds. It's great for everything from fingerstyle DADGAD to flatpicked tunes or vocal accompaniment." - Paul Heumiller
"One of the most unusual Ryan models, this guitar seems to be a combination of several styles. It has the feel of a small guitar with the sound of a larger guitar. The tone is pure and defined and the playability is perfect. The action is set nice and low for those players who want a "fast" feel." - Al Petteway
