Ryan Nightingale Grand Soloist Amazon Rosewood



Kevin Ryan built some truly spectacular instruments for the NAMM show this year and this Ryan Nightingale really knocked us out.  It boasts a big, complex, balanced sound, and is incredibly easy and effortless to play.  It's wonderfully articulate in every register and the "acoustic flutes" built into the bevel project the sound towards the player which creates an incredibly immersive playing experience.  The bass has a great deal of depth while remaining well-defined and not overpowering the rest of the guitar, while the sound shimmers with overtones and detail.  One of the things we've found constantly excellent in Kevin's builds is the gorgeous tonewoods chosen and the Amazon Rosewood is beautiful figured and provides a complexity of sound similar to Madagascar Rosewood.  A terrific example of modern guitar building at its best!  Priced with new Calton Case.
