Kevin Ryan / Nightingale Tiger Myrtle Adirondack 12-2 String / Guitar

A Kevin Ryan guitar is alwasy something very special, but a Kevin Ryan 10 string Nightingale as in 12 string minus 2 string,  is totally unique. I have described it in the title as 12 string-2 strings, to make clear that this is not about a 10 core guitar, but about a 12 string minus two string on the high E / B. A very special concept, entirely focused on the combination of strumming and fingerstyle playing on a '12' string, this beautiful fingerstyle 10 string is unique in its appearance. Made like only Ryan can, on a scary high level, where the inside of the guitar is almost more reminiscent of rocket technology than guitar engineering, with improved perforated 'bracing' and 'honeycomb' 'bridgeplate', ensuring the guitar which sounds more reminiscent of a grand piano than a guitar. You can imagine the effect this has on the sound of this 10 string. A beautiful instrument and transcends everything else. Features with Premium Tiger Myrtle back and sides, Mastergrade Adirondack spruce top black, beautiful ebony binding and bevel armrest with so called flutes (perforactions) so that the player also hears the sound of his own guitar. The bevel armrest, like many other modern developments in the guitar world, is an invention of Kevin Ryan. The beautiful neck has a nut width of 47.8 mm (1 7/8 inch) and a string spacing of 61 mm (2 3/8 ") and a scale length of 653 mm (25.7") the beautifully bound ebony headstock is equipped with Gold gotoh 510 machine heads with ebony buttons.  Other features include a Low Profile Neck, an ultra-rigid yet slim neck shape made possible by their proprietary micro-adjustable truss rod system, blue Paua abalone top purfling, wide tiger myrtle rosette with Blue Paua Purfling, Blue Paua "Ryan" Logo, Ghost Fretboard inlays made of Paua and MOP, Shell Appointments Upgrade package, Blue paua headstock and fretboard purfling, micropearl logo purfling, Titanium Bridgepins and A5 Kerfed liner. Included is a luxury Calton Flight case.

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.
