The 327 has an Adirondack spruce top, nitrocellulose lacquer finish and M.O.P and abalone inlay priced under $1000.

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.

We’re almost finished with the aging process on our project guitar. Let’s work on the fretboard, nut, and truss rod cover, and prepare the headstock for the last hurrah.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. This month we’ll continue with our relic’ing project, taking a closer look at the front side of the neck and treating the fretboard and the headstock. We’ll work on the front side of the headstock in the next part, but first we must prepare it.
