Iris AB - 2022 Sarah Ryan Limited Edition

$4995 CAD
One of ten Sarah Ryan custom painted 2022 Iris limited release guitars, this instrument features handpainted artwork overtop a black-finished AB model with white bindings and pickguard. Sarah Ryan is a Burlington, Vermont based visual artist who has gained renown in the guitar world for her work with Creston Guitars, also of Burlington. Sarah Ryan’s painted Crestons have something of a cult-like following and are gracing stages all over the world with high-level guitarists of all kinds. Her work with Iris Guitars is limited to 10 unique painted flat-tops a year; and we ordered this custom AB, complete with white accents as one of these 10. (If you’re wondering, Iris Guitars founder Adam Buchwald shared shop space with Creston Lee for a number of years before moving to a larger facility in 2020).

A beautiful guitar with the AB’s incredible warmth and string balance, super-light built, and excellent playability. Mahogany and spruce with scalloped/tapered X bracing, 25” scale, 1-11/16” nut and 2.2” string spread at the saddle.
