❌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!

❌SOLD❌  David Nichols 00 Style Steel String Guitar, 2002

This David Nichols OO style guitar demonstrates Nichol’s high degree of familiarity with pearl inlay – it looks like it was easy for the builder to do, a sure sign that it isn’t. This David Nichols OO style guitar is a great example. Dave Nichols has spent decades doing custom inlay work, including a lot for the Martin Guitar company, and he’s chosen the classic designs and here, the ‘Style 41’ inlay set executed in Mother of Pearl and Abalone.

Larrivee LV-09E Rosewood Artist Series, 2006

Larrivee LV-09E Rosewood Artist Series, 2006

This Larrivee LV-09E was built during late 2006, and is in great shape with a factory-stock L.R. Baggs Anthem pickup system! Drawing from classical guitar building roots, the L-body provides a full, even harmonic representation with plenty of volume and articulation. The ‘V’ indicates a rounded Venetian style cutaway. The top is Sitka Spruce, paired with Indian Rosewood for the sides and back. The body blocks and neck are Mahogany, while the bridge and bound fingerboard are Ebony.

❌SOLD❌ Martin D-35 Dreadnought Steel String Natural, 2013

❌SOLD❌  Martin D-35 Dreadnought Steel String Natural, 2013

The Martin D-35 Dreadnought appeared in 1965 but made its catalog debut in 1966, and was a practical response to increasing demand for square-shouldered dreadnoughts.   Demand was so high for that specific body design that Gibson altered several round-shouldered models, including the iconic J-45 to the square-shouldered design.

❌SOLD❌ Gibson FJN Folksinger Jumbo Natural, 1964

❌SOLD❌  Gibson FJN Folksinger Jumbo Natural, 1964

Created for the folk boom of the early 1960’s, the Gibson FJN Folksinger Jumbo Natural Finish has a few differences from Gibson’s regular dreadnoughts. While it uses the Jumbo body size found on guitars like the SJ, the FJN has a wide 12-fret neck – the nut is nearly 2 inches wide – and is braced for nylon, Silk & Steel, or very light steel strings. Interest in the FJN faded with the folk boom, and by 1967 the FJN was taken out of production.

❌SOLD❌ Collings 0001 12-Fret Steel String Natural, 2012

❌SOLD❌  Collings 0001 12-Fret Steel String Natural, 2012

Here is a wonderful Collings 0001 with a 12-fret full 25.5 inch scale neck, built with Sitka Spruce top and Honduran Mahogany. Built during 2012 in Austin and signed by Bill Collings, this guitar is in very good clean condition.  While this guitar is now almost a decade old, it has been very well cared for.  It’s also been owned and played by someone with highly developed skills, and so the guitar has had a chance to develop its frankly impressive voice.
