❌SOLD❌ Ryan Paradiso Grand Concert Steel String Guitar, 2020

❌SOLD❌   Ryan Paradiso Grand Concert Steel String Guitar, 2020

Here we have a very special Ryan Paradiso Grand Concert model, built during 2020 in Southern California and with all of the Ryan appointments. It is rare to see one of these models on the used market. Kevin Ryan has been building guitars since 1987, while he was an engineer for Northrop AgroScience Lab, building models of jets for transonic wind tunnel testing. The necessarily extreme thoroughness and attention to detail carried over into his guitar designs, producing many innovations – not to mention great sounding guitars!
