Default Kevin Ryan Mission GC, EIR/Cedar w/Calton Case *Video*

2002 Ryan MGC
  • Master Grade EIR and Cedar Top
  • Cocobolo Binding Scheme
  • Cocobolo Headstock Ducktail
  • Herringbone Soundboard Purfling
  • Paua Abalone Rosette
  • Gotoh Super 510 Gold Tuners w/Black Buttons
  • 1-3/4 Nut Width
  • 2-1/4 Saddle spacing
  • 25.7 Scale Length
  • Clear Pickguard
  • K&K PU
  • Grey Calton Case

$7500 plus shipping

I am the original owner of this magnificent instrument and worked directly with Kevin when he built it for me.
As you can see from the pictures, it's in pristine condition. It's 18 years old so I'd say "near mint".
Visually, I'd say it could use a fret dress but nothing in the feel, sound, or playability would indicate that so that would be a personal decision.

Always properly humidified and kept in the case when not being played.
Never gigged and only played out a handful of times for church.

I won't try to list all of the superlatives describing how it sounds because if you're considering a Ryan you most likely know how they sound.

Playability is incredible! Ryan's necks are extremely comfortable and stable. I have it set-up low and straight.
I will include a couple of saddles in the event you prefer something different in the action height.

#FYI - on photo #3 there is a lot of light reflection, not a scratch or defect!

Thanks for your consideration and certainly feel free to ask any questions that you might have!

Thanks for the interest and messages that have been sent. There have been a few trade Q's. I appreciate the offers but I'm not interested in trades.

Sell those guitars and buy this incredible Ryan. You won't regret it - I probably will though!

Default Video Clip added

I added a video just give an overview of how the Ryan sounds.

It's by no means a pro video or audio for that matter, but not a bad representation either.

I recorded it on a Zoom video recorder with the XY mics from about 5' away.

I just wanted to get a basic recording of a new tune I had written for my own purposes but thought it might be OK to post here.

Thanks for your interest!

You have "Playback on other sites" disabled on your video so if someone wants to watch it they have to click through to youtube.

Hey UncleJesse -

That's the first video I've uploaded to YT specifically to use here. I'm not familiar with the settings.

Can you explain what should be done? I'm able to watch the video here, aren't you?

In YouTube go to Video Manager, select the video, click Advanced Settings, tick the "Embed" box.

This beautiful Ryan MGC is still available. If you've never played a Kevin Ryan guitar you owe it to yourself to experience it.
