You have an absolutely world class guitar coming your way Josh! Really intrigued to see how your back set would look when it is cleaned up with some finish added

Looks to me like the braces are CNC'ed to give those holes, no doubt with the aim of reducing mass. If so, then how much additional scalloping of these does Mr. Ryan do by hand, or are they glued in place as is?

I guess I'm asking if the top is voiced by brace shaving just like a "standard" brace would be if done by another luthier?

Cheers,
Steve

Smile Good question Steve

When I visited the shop last year Kevin gave me a quick explanation of the EO braces. They are indeed laser cut on a CNC.

I am really loving my 05 nightingale soloist. Which does not have any of the newer EO stuff. And is MIGHTY FINE AS IS!!!!

I figure it just gets better with the tech upgrades!!! Otherwise, why bother?

You have a special one coming! Thanks for sharing the build...

Cheers

Paul

Everything about the build, fit, and finish of a Ryan just screams "precision". This guitar you've got coming is as good as it gets. Can't wait to see the final result!

Before luthierie took Kevin over he was an aerospace engineer or, the fun way to say it, rocket scientist. He is one of our builders who takes full advantage of CNC and laser cutting. If you've not visited his website www.ryanguitars.com I recommend it. Take a look at the "innovations" tab and it'll give a pretty fair overview of how he approaches his craft.

About time we had another Ryan build thread! Kevin Ryan is a delight to work with, I look forward to seeing this thread progress.

Default "Diamonte" pics

My fretboard will be inlaid with Kevin's Diamonte pattern. It comes from, originally, a Signature Series guitar with over 700 inlaid diamond shell and MOP pieces. A remarkable guitar and that inlay has been used a few times since. Here are two pics, taken by Barb Ryan (maybe Kevin), of that guitar.

That guitar was on my shortlist before I ordered a Klein instead. Very nice guitar.

What's the story with Ryan's bridge plate?

My mom absolutely adores it! It sits next to her OM-42

Are you asking about the Acoustic Honeycomb? The big thing with holes in it...
