Recording King has introduced a line of new metal body resonator instruments, including two guitars plus a mandolin and ukulele. All feature bell brass bodies and hand-spun cones, and the guitars offer the choice between a tricone and a single resonator design.
The RM991 guitar uses three 6” Continental cones and is available in both round and squareneck configurations, both made from Honduran mahogany. The roundneck model offers either a champagne matte or nickel/silver finish, and the squareneck comes in nickel/silver. Both use a screen coverplate and a T-shaped bridge.
The style-O RM998 is a single cone guitar (9.5” Continental) with a roundhole coverplate. The finish and neck options are the same as the 991.
All of the guitar models carry a retail price of 699.99. At this time, no pricing info on the mandolin or ukulele is listed on the Recording King site.
