Kevin Ryan / Nightingale DB Bensusan Signature 12 Of 17 / 2010 / Guitar For Sale

2008 Kevin Ryan Pierre Bensusan model, limited edition, #12 out of only 17 made. Kevin Ryan made this model in collaboration with our good friend and master guitar-player Mr. Pierre Bensusan. A fantastic guitar with breathtaking looks and matching tone with outrageous dynamics, a round deep bass, impressive mids and equally strong treble response. It's also articulate and highly responsive which makes it perfect for a broad variety of playing styles, but it truly shines in the hands of a great fingerpicker. The Pierre Bensusan model was based on the Nightingale. The Nightingale size is that of a medium size J, F model, or Grand Auditorium, and measures 400mm (15 3/4") at the lower bout, an impressive and powerful guitar, but one that always leaves you - the player - in total control. The Pierre Bensusan features Premium Indian rosewood back and sides, Dark Cedar top, Florentine Cutaway, ebony fingerboard and bridge, bound rosewood faceplate with Ryan Logo in Pearl, Gotoh 510 tuners with ebony buttons, rosewood back of the head veneer, 655mm (25.7") scale length, 44.5mm(1 3/4") width at the Nut, 61mm( 2 2/5") fingerspacing at the saddle. But one of the most striking features is the rosewood armrest bevel which adds extra comfort to the deep body. The neck is very fast, C shaped with satin finish to accommodate fast play. Condition is excellent with some angelhair signs of use. Includes original green Calton hardshell case and built in K&K Trinity pickup.

I have always been opposed to being trapped into a job eight hours a day to purchase the free time to do what I enjoy. That’s why i started the Fellowship of Acoustics. The fellowship of acoustics was founded by Rudi Bults, Guitarist and obsessed with tone and wood. The idea was offering real expertise when trading and selling the finest instruments in the world from our showroom in Bergentheim, Netherlands. Helping others find the right tools and enjoying an atmosphere that’s unhurried, honest and informative that’s my go. We are nothing like the "supermarket" style music stores, but specialize in string-things only. We are widely known for Flattop guitars but also sell electric, mandolins & banjo’s, amps, parts, and accessories. Our store has earned the reputation for being a great place to shop for the best products and service.
It is our hope that this new website - much more than a list of "gear" for sale - will serve as an example of our commitment to offering a more personal approach, a friendly atmosphere, and an ultimately more satisfying experience for our friends and customers.
If you have any questions just dial +31-523-232205 or e-mail My name is Rudi Bults, and I’m always here to help out. Wherever possible, we would recommend that you visit our store and experience our instruments and service first hand. However, because of our high standards you can be confident of ordering online from us. We hope you enjoy your visit to our site, and welcome your feedback.


We do speak English, Dutch and German! Feel free to call in any of these languages and ask your questions! Call 0031-523-232205




We LOVE Guitars, and buy and trade for most stringed instruments. But we also do consignment, make appraisals for insurance or put you on our watch list. Please check the Buying & Trading page for details.
