Hayward, CA (January 24, 2013) – Recording King introduces the 6-string Madison banjo, perfect for guitar players looking to add the unique sound of a banjo to their repertoire.

The Recording King Madison 6-string banjo (RK-G25-BR) is the perfect combination of guitar-style playability with banjo appointments. Based on the banjo designs of the best-selling Madison series RK-R25, the Madison 6-string is assembled with a maple resonator, tube-and-plate style 2-piece flange, and dual coordinator rods. It also takes a nod from Recording King's guitar line, with a truss-rod-adjustable maple neck and a full 25.4” dreadnought scale length.

The 1-3/8' nut with allows for comfortable banjo picking, but is still narrow enough to fret chords comfortably. The bone nut and maple/ebony bridge help deliver the percussive sound banjo players love. We've finished it off with high-quality Grover butterbean tuners, classic nickel-plated hardware and a hand-rubbed brown satin finish.

For players who can't decide between guitar and banjo, or just want the best of both, the Recording King RK-G35 Madison 6-string banjo is a great-sounding and affordable choice. The Madison 6-string banjo has a street price of $649.99 and is covered by Recording King's industry-leading lifetime warranty.
