Developed in collaboration with guitarist and historian Eric Schoenberg, the Recording King O and OO guitars (RP1-626 and RP2-626) offer players the even frequency response, clarity and wider neck traditional to a classic small-body instrument.
The one-piece mahogany neck with a classic v-profile meets the body at the 12-fret with a hand cut dovetail joint, giving these guitars a true small body sound, warm and rich, but perfectly balanced. The solid AAA Engelmann spruce top and solid mahogany back and sides have been carefully selected and hand-assembled. With a 1-3/4” nut width, Grover tuners, ebony fretboard and ebony pyramid bridge, these O and OO guitars are as well-appointed and unique as they are beautiful. Each guitar is sprayed with a thin coat of nitrocellulose lacquer and then hand-buffed for a finish that is extremely resonant and historically accurate.
The RP1-626 and RP2-626 models have Recording King's lifetime warranty.
