Sitka spruce / Indian Rosewood
For thirty years, we've pushed the acoustic guitar toward the pinnacle of design efficiency to reach the next level of comfort, refinement, and acoustic response. Here's what we've come up with so far.
Engineered Laser Cut Bracing. Strong and light for an exquisitely responsive soundboard. Plus Acoustic Honeycomb. Eliminates plate distortion and further reduces soundboard mass for iridescent tone
Spherically-Arched Back. Combines the focus and comfort of a standard body with the powerful acoustic voice of a deep-bodied instrument.
The Ryan Bevel. Provides the ultimate ergonomic comfort for long performance sessions. With Acoustic Flutes. Situated on the Ryan bevel, these elegant sound ports direct and reflect sound from the guitar’s interior toward the player’s ear.
Custom Machines. Super 510 machines, in black or gold chrome, feature an 18:1 gear ratio for precise stay-put tuning.
Low Profile Neck. Our proprietary micro-adjustable truss rod supports an ultra-rigid yet slim neck shape. With Extended Scale Length. Facilitates responsive string tension while the guitar is set in alternate tunings.
Each Ryan guitar is furnished with abalone shell fitted with custom titanium bridge pins, and coated with a brilliant UV diamond-gloss finish.
