The Century Set
At the 1933 World's Fair in Chicago, the Century of Progress theme was displayed on products from cars to guitars. The Recording King Century33 Set includes a guitar, mandolin and ukulele all inspired by the unique designs at the Fair.
In the 85 years since that World's Fair, Recording King has been known as a choice for players that understand great value and don’t have to run with the pack. The Century33 Set takes solid tone woods for great sound and matches them with an unmistakable looking Pearloid Fretboard for a truly unique trio of instruments.
The Century33 Set's guitar has a solid spruce top supported by our Cross Lap Bracing for more projection and focused midrange. The bone nut and saddle are rarely found in guitars at this price, and the ROC-9-TS Century33 Guitar has the even frequency response across the tonal spectrum a 000 body is known for - all wrapped up in a look one can't find anywhere else. Choose just the guitar, or get the guitar, ukulele and mandolin for 18 strings of history!
The Century33 Set's mandolin has a solid spruce top on our own A-style body. The low profile bracing and historically accurate F-hole shapes were chosen and voiced to bring out a tonal sweetness. The RAC-9-TS Century33 Mandolin's neck profile is shaped for comfort whether the player is a mandolin expert or a guitarist getting new inspiration, all wrapped up in a look one can't find anywhere else. Choose just the mandolin, or get the mandolin, ukulele and guitar for 18 strings of history!
The Century33 Set's soprano ukulele has a solid spruce top for maximum soundboard vibration. Geared nickel/ivory tuners and a tobacco sunburst finish add to the vintage look. The RUC-9-TS Century33 Ukulele also honors the earlier 1915 San Francisco World's Fair, when the first mainland ukulele craze began. Sweet tone and background, all wrapped up in a look one can't find anywhere else. Choose just the ukulele, or get the ukulele, mandolin, and guitar for 18 strings of history!
