Ryan Nightingale Grand Soloist Old Growth Walnut & Redwood


TME is happy to be stocking new Kevin Ryan guitars! For years, both the Ryan name and aesthetic have been synonymous with the phrase "world-class fingerstyle guitar" -- and the new instruments coming out of their shop are the best they've ever made. The Nightingale "Grand Soloist" is the most versatile and sought-after guitar in their lineup; and it produces the deep, complex sound fingerstyle guitarists demand for intricate instrumental work. This particular guitar features tone woods sourced from Ryan's native California -- old-growth Walnut back and sides and a Redwood top. In addition to the sensational figure on display here, this instrument is a fantastic example of the great sounding guitars that can be produced with domestically sourced materials: its woody voice and huge low-end response will stand toe-to-toe with any Ryan guitar, and its playability is spot-on perfect. Priced with new Calton Case (white exterior, black interior).
