Ryan Guitars

Kevin Ryan has been pushing the boundaries of handmade, steel string, acoustic guitars from his Southern California workshop for over thirty years. Ryan Guitars are beloved for their comfort, performance, and design innovation.

Ryan Guitars was established in Southern California, 1987. Kevin Ryan had been working in the thriving aerospace industry, designing fighter jet models for transonic wind tunnel testing, when he prototyped his first guitar model, The Mission Grand Concert. Acoustic Guitar Magazine would later describe the Mission model as one of the most influential guitars of the last thirty years: “A blueprint for scores of other builders” and “a modern classic.” The success of the Mission confirmed the Ryan shop’s culture of seeking inspiration outside the guitar industry to conceive some of the most advanced acoustic guitar designs in existence.
