RK-ELITE-85 Recording King Flamed Maple Resonator Banjo, The Elite 85
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.
