Hayward, CA (October 3, 2010) -- Recording King introduces the all-new 327 with an Adirondack spruce top, nitrocellulose lacquer finish and M.O.P and abalone inlay priced under $1000.
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 1920s. 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, rosette, and torch-style headstock inlay, the 327 looks as beautiful as it sounds. The guitar is finished in a thin coat of nitrocellulose lacquer for resonance and historical accuracy.
From most guitar builders, just one of the 327’s professional features would be enough to ratchet its price over $1000, but Recording King delivers this unbelievable combination of hand-crafted design, aesthetic beauty and unparalleled warmth and projection for a MAP of $974.99.
