Description

Easy on the eyes, ears, and hands--this '99 Ryan Mission Grand Concert feels as familiar as an old friend. Even in 1999 Kevin Ryan was doing Indian Rosewood and Cedar right, giving this GC a combination of breathy trebles, balanced registers, and a warmly articulate bass response. The neck profile is slim and fast, perfect for the nimble fingerstylist who needs a guitar which can keep up.


We found the voice to be equally present and expressive, regardless if you were in first position or sprinting around the 14th fret and into the Venetian Cutaway's territory. Something about playing in DADF#AD really let this Ryan sing, but the GC body and 25.7" scale handled standard and even C tunings just as easily. With the use of a K&K passive pickup, this Mission transitions beautifully into amplified territory for gigging or recording (it fits nicely with a Henriksen Bud or AER Compact 60/3, for instance). You'll be hard-pressed to find a better all-around guitar.

Excellent balance. The bass register blooms very sweetly, but doesn't dominate the voice at all. Ryan's slim neck profile makes for deft left-hand work.
 
This is very much like my first Ryan guitar. I love the sound and the feel.
