Hayward, CA (Jan 21, 2012) — Recording King updates our Century Jubilee Series Slope Shoulder guitars with an extended scale length and vintage styling.
They've extended to the full dreadnought scale of 25.4” for a little more punch and projection. The classic body shape still delivers the sweetness and ideal tonal blend characteristic to slope shoulder guitars, but the longer scale gives it just a touch more volume to help cut through the mix. The 1-11/16” bone nut is perfectly comfortable for strumming, fingerstyle or flatpicking, and combined with the bone saddle, helps to give these guitars and additional degree of brightness and clarity.
To celebrate the sonic upgrades, some changes in the detailing have been made too, with ivory body and fretboard binding, pearl fretboard dots, vintage-inspired Golden Age tuners and the classic Recording King headstock logo inlay.
The slope shoulder guitars are available in two different styles to fit the needs of any player. The RAJ-126 has a solid AA grade Sitka spruce top and solid African Mahogany back and sides. It’s finished in vintage sunburst with a classic firestripe pickguard, and ivory Golden Age tuning machines.
The RAJ-116 has the same AA grade Sitka top with Mahogany back and sides. It’s finished in natural, with the same firestripe pickguard but with classic-style Grover tuners.
The Recording King Slope Shoulder guitars start at $499.99 with solid Sitka top and Rosewood back and sides, and come with Recording King's industry-leading lifetime warranty.
