Kevin Ryan / Nightingale Grand Soloist Katalox Swiss Moon Spruce / 2019 / Guitar

The Nightingale Grand Soloist is Kevin Ryan's most versatile model with a pronounced bass, iridescent trebles and a warm, sustained sound. It is equally suitable for fingerstyle, strumming and alternative tunings. This Ryan has a soundboard of beautiful Mexican Royal Ebony, also called Katalox, and this gives this Nightingale Grand Soloist its typical character. The Swiss spruce top, with its eccentric flame, is a sight to behold. The combination of these woods gives the guitar a big sound with impressive lows, a complex but balanced midrange and lively highs. The Acoustic Flutes provide great projection and the EO bracing with Honeycomb gives the guitar great response, dynamics and projection. Of course, playing comfort is paramount and this Nightingale has Ryan's signature ergonomic 'bevel' and a cutaway. Besides the beautiful woods, the paua purfling and fingerboard inlays are the icing on the cake of this luxurious, eye-catching instrument. This 2019 Kevin Ryan Nightingale Grand Soloist is still extremely clean, but has some very minor hairline lacquer cracks in the sapwood of the back of the body, along with a few spots of air under the lacquer of the binding of the neck on the bass side of the first two frets. The guitar is otherwise free of scratches and playing marks and comes with TFOA passport in original hardshell case from Calton.

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.
