Description

If you’re looking for clean energy, look no further: our 2017 Ryan Nightingale’s fuel reserves are renewable, bottomless, and crystal clear. We have been, hands down, blown away by the clarity and power of this Nightingale Grand Soloist. Kevin Ryan’s guitars are an obvious choice for fingerstyle, and we had an absolute ball in standard tuning, right on down to C# territory. The Adirondack Spruce top lends strength and projection to the voice, and that pairs well with the smooth note definition and dynamic color that the Honduran Rosewood back and sides provide. The acoustic-flutes-and-arm-bevel combination gives the player a bit extra in their own ear, and keeps playability gossamer smooth (ditto for Ryan’s slim neck profile). Gorgeous Blue Paua Abalone trim, titanium bridge pins, and a Calton flight case complete the package.
This is the Ryan you’ve been waiting for.

This is the first Honduran Rosewood Ryan guitar I’ve ever played. The tone is magical, really excellent clarity up top and beautiful resonance down low. I love everything about it, and the color of the wood is just fabulous.
