Recording King Custom Shop ROS-697 & More
August 14, 2009
PG's Chris Burgess is On Location in Nashville, TN, for Summer NAMM '09 where he swings by the Recording King booth. In this video segment, we get introduced to some of their newest offerings - Custom Shop ROS-697 and the Jubilee Series Classic Small-Body acoustic. The ROS-697 is based on a historic 1927 12th fret 000 design. It features a hand-selected AAA Sitka spruce top, Brazilian rosewood back and sides and a mahogany neck. The ebony fingerboard is inlaid with an elaborate Greg Rich-designed Tree-of-Life M.O.P inlay covering the full fretboard. There will only be 10 of these Custom Shop renditions made.
The Jubilee Series Classic Small-Body has a solid Sitka spruce top and supported with hand-shaped, fully scalloped x-bracing. The back and sides are made of figured maple. The "C" profile neck is made from a single piece of solid mahogany with traditionally styled inlay on the rosewood fretboard.
