New classic acoustic guitars debut from Recording King

Recording King RD-227 classic dreadnaught guitarRecording King has announced the launch of a new series of acoustic, dreadnaught guitars based on the designs of the heralded pre-war flattops. These three new families of guitars (Classic, Contemporary and Historic) will be introduced sequentially, starting with the Classic line late this summer.

The Classic line will offer both solid top and all solid wood guitars, with more ornate appointments available on the solid wood models.

From the Recording King site:

All models feature fully scalloped forward-x bracing for tonal resonance and strength, a solid Sitka or Engelmann spruce top, solid or standard mahogany or rosewood back and sides, a one-piece mahogany neck, grained ivoroid binding and an ebony fretboard and bridge.

Retail prices will begin at $329 for solid top and $549 for all solid models.
