Description

A guitar like this, it’s between a rock and a hard place: you want to stare at all the gorgeous curves, but you also want to pluck the strings. Tough call. This 2007 Ryan Abbey is one of Kevin’s Signatures, and it shows not only in the extensive art deco-style inlays but also in the knife’s edge note separation and velvety sustain.


Brazilian Rosewood back and sides, Cedar top, Mother-of-Pearl inlays, fossilized bridge pins, trimmed in Abalone and Ebony with a darkly glittering finish. Ryan’s Grand Parlor body offers the warmth of a parlor, but none of the squishiness (thanks in part to the 25 inch scale). The voice has a great balance of colorful overtones and a well-defined fundamental. Even a light attack yields a capacious response, and impressive sustain.


This is the cream of the Ryan crop: elegant exterior and a wide open throttle underneath.

I've always loved Kevin Ryan's Abbey Grand Parlor design. It has a slightly deeper body and offers up a surprising and satisfying amount of bass response. If you close your eyes you'd think it's a bigger guitar. This one is his Signature series, for which Kevin uses his private stash of woods and he adorned this one with beautiful mission style inlays throughout. A stunner for the eyes and the ears.
