The Recording King 327 is available in either dreadnought (RD) or 000-style
(RO) body shapes. The top is made from solid AAA Adirondack spruce. Adirondack
has been a prized choice for guitar tops since the 1920’s. It is generally
considered to be more resonant that Sitka spruce and it also has a unique
wide-grain pattern that makes Adirondack guitars aesthetically unique. For many
years, Adirondack spruce was rare or unavailable; even now, guitars with
Adirondack spruce tops are among the most expensive and sought-after models.
The back and sides of both the RD- and RO-327 are made from solid East Indian
Rosewood. The 327 has a nut width of 1-3/4” and the one-piece neck is fitted to
the body with a hand-cut dovetail joint. The fretboard is made from ebony, as is
the slot-through bridge. With extensively detailed abalone top purfling and
rosette, the 327 looks as beautiful as it sounds. The guitar is finished in a
thin coat of nitrocellulose lacquer for resonance and historical accuracy.
