Recording King manufactures traditional folk & bluegrass instruments "using vintage designs and hand-assembled parts" — in their own words. The company's large product line encompasses acoustic guitars, resonators, banjos & even lap steels!
The Recording King name has been around since the early 1930s; a period that is fondly remembered as the "Golden Age" of musical craftsmanship when some of the world's most influential and coveted fretted acoustic guitars were conceived. Starting life as a house brand for department store chain Montgomery Ward, the Recording King line was later discontinued in 1939 — with the name dormant for more than six decades.
Brought back to life in 2007 by the California-based Music Link Corporation, Recording King's current instrument range captures the spirit of its '30s roots and promises "the look, feel and sound of the classic models, with impeccable workmanship and enhancements for contemporary players."
