Description

Paradise on Earth, or at least in your lap: our Kevin Ryan 2010 Paradiso in Brazilian Rosewood and Swiss Spruce. This is Ryan's small-bodied fingerstyle guitar, deep and resonant. Thanks to the 25.5" scale, the bass is well defined and balanced. The longer scale length, combined with Ryan's deeper-than-average body, give the guitar a big-bodied feel, but with all the ease of play of a much smaller instrument--and a low profile neck helps ensure effortless fretting.


The tone is rich and complex, and the entire build is executed with laser (no pun intended) precision, right down to the Paua Abalone trim which spans the length and breadth of the body and Kevin's innovative Fluted Arm Bevel for soundports and EO ("Engineered Openings") bracing and spherically arched back. This guitar was made with fingerstylists in mind, and it does not disappoint.


Here's an additional demo with our own Al Petteway: https://youtu.be/LrCjmrNxkfY

The Paradiso is a wonderful body shape from Kevin Ryan, right in the sweet spot--a midsize instrument that has plenty of bass response and power but remains completely balanced and clear. This one features a Swiss Spruce top which always seems to add something special to Kevin’s instruments.
 
A very nice guitar with the characteristic warmth you'd expect from a Ryan. Beautifully appointed and exquisite woods.
