Description

There are few greater pleasures around the shop than getting in a Kevin Ryan guitar. Without doubt or question we know that we will be getting a spectacular instrument in everytime. Such is the case with this 2003 Nightingale. Built from the legendary combination of German Spruce and Brazilian Rosewood, this Nightingale has a rich tonal palette, with soaring trebles and low down basses, it is like having an orchestra sitting on your lap. Playing it soft and smooth, one is reminded of the sweet string section, play a single note lead and the horn section comes to mind, dig in and the full ensemble comes rushing out of the soundhole. This is a once in a lifetime guitar, don't miss it.


Here's an additional demo with our own Al Pettewayhttps://youtu.be/HG7VaWsNqmI

This is as good as it gets, the tone, the feel, the looks. Kevin hit the nail on the head with this one. I love it.
 
Like a portable piano, this guitar sings through all registers. It has an underlying warmth to the tone that is very satisfying and with the armrest bevel, it's extremely comfortable to play for a large guitar.
