2004 Ryan Nightingale Signature, "El Milagro" Brazilian Rosewood/Swiss Spruce
We’ve had many, many guitar from Kevin Ryan pass through our shop, and we’ve been consistently impressed by their consistent tone, balance, and particular excellence for fingerstyle music. But this beautiful 2004 Nightingale Signature may be one of the most incredible. Not only are Kevin’s aesthetics on point (Ebony bindings, arm bevel, sparkling Abalone trim, fossilized nut & saddle, Lapis Lazuli-inlaid bridge pins), but the set of "El Milagro" Brazilian Rosewood he chose for the back and sides is jaw-dropping for both its grain lines and its acoustic properties. Tied with Swiss Spruce on top, this Nightingale Signature has a voice that is simultaneously voluminous and bell-like. It’s a huge, room-filling voice that also manages to make individual notes sound intimate as a whispered word.

Larry Robinson adorned the fretboard extension with a Celtic horse, and capped the heel block with a matching Celtic dog. The effect sets off the beauty of the surrounding woods without stealing the show; like everything else about this guitar, the Robinson inlays operate smoothly as part of the harmonious whole. As an added bonus, this is the first Signature Series guitar that Kevin adorned with his signature on the headstock!

"Before I played this instrument, Logan told me he thought it was one of the best he’d ever heard. I asked if it was a Swiss top, and it is." - Paul Heumiller

Price: $20,600
