RK-ELITE-85 Recording King Flamed Maple Resonator Banjo
Modeled after the original Mastertone banjos of the 1930's, our RK Elite 85 offers players classic vintage snap and handcrafted construction.
Professional components like a classic Mastertone-style tone ring and true steam-bent 3-ply maple rim provide the fundamentals for traditional banjo tone.
The highly-flamed maple resonator & neck and sunburst finish result in a stunning banjo with excellent projection and beautiful aesthetics.
With classic design features like the vintage-style double-cut Recording King peghead and custom Hearts & Flowers-style peghead and fretboard inlay, the Elite 85 combines historic banjo tradition with modern construction for a true top shelf instrument.
