RKO-3S Recording King Dirty 30s Open Back Banjo

Product Description

The Dirty 30's open back RKO-3S sits at the perfect crossroads of classic sound and historic design.
Like the original Montgomery Ward mail order instruments from the first half of the century, this Dirty 30's banjo is the ideal companion for singer-songwriters, folk stylists or traveling troubadours.

This banjo packs excellent playability and historic vibe into a retro-infused package that makes vintage style and traditional banjo sound accessible to every player.  

With a great looking satin finish, Maple neck and Remo Recording King banjo head, the RKO-3S delivers classic tone and is light enough to take on the road with ease.

For players wanting to get into traditional old-time or clawhammer styles, the Dirty 30s Open-Back banjo offers the ideal combination of great tone and portability in a retro-infused package.
