Hayward, CA (July 13, 2012) – Recording King introduces the all-solid RD-310 with Adirondack Spruce top for players who want the increased volume and projection of an Adirondack top with an affordable price tag.

Adirondack Spruce (or Red Spruce) has become a serious buzzword over the past year. It's been a prized choice for guitar tops since the 1920's, and players are discovering it again. Adirondack is considered more resonant than Sitka and has a unique wide-grain pattern that makes Adirondack guitar tops aesthetically unique. The RD-310 delivers everything great about Adirondack, with an all-solid body and a $499 MAP.

Designed for players who need to cut through the mix with the extra volume and projection of an Adirondack top, the RD-310 also has solid mahogany back and sides for a traditional dreadnought sound. With a thin “C” profile mahogany neck and 1-11/16” nut width, guitarists will find the RD-310 to be extremely comfortable, and the bone nut and saddle and deluxe Grover Rotomatic tuners keep it in perfect tune even after hours of playing.

The RD-310 brings the tonal superiority and unique character of Adirondack Spruce to guitarists at a price that won't break the bank.

The RD-310 has a MAP of $499.99 and comes with Recording King's industry-leading lifetime warranty.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
