Recording King RK-ELITE-75 The Elite Flying Eagle Banjo Resonator

With Vintage Hardshell Case

Written by

James Hurman

Here's what Recording King says about The Flying Eagle Banjo

Modeled after the original Mastertone banjos of the 1930's, the Recording King RK-Elite offers players vintage sound and handcrafted construction.

Professional components like a classic Mastertone-style tone ring and true steam-bent 3-ply maple rim put this banjo in a category by itself.

With classic design features like the vintage-style double-cut Recording King peghead and custom Flying Eagle-style inlay, this banjo proudly wears its historic heritage. 

The 27-3/8" scale delivers extra punch, combining traditional sound and looks with modern power.
