Recording King Introduces the Dirty Thirties Series Vintage-Style Solid Top Guitars

With a solid top and old-style matte sunburst finish, these instruments meet at the perfect crossroads of classic sound, vintage style and exceptional value.

Hayward (January 24, 2013) – Recording King introduces the Dirty Thirties Series - meant to sound great wherever the road takes you. With a solid top and old-style matte sunburst finish, these instruments meet at the perfect crossroads of classic sound, vintage style and exceptional value. Like the original Montgomery Ward mail order guitars in the first half of the century, the Dirty Thirties Series are the perfect companion for singer-songwriters, folk stylists or traveling troubadours.

Available in three historic shapes, the Dirty Thirties Dreadnought, OOO and Single O all start with a solid Spruce top and rosewood fretboard, with bone nut and saddle. We’ve finished each guitar with classic extra-large fretboard dots, aged ivoroid body binding, satin sunburst finish, vintage-inspired tuning keys and historic Recording King headstock.

Dirty Thirties guitars pack excellent playability and historic vibe into an ultra-affordable package that makes vintage style accessible to even the most budget-conscious players.

The Dirty Thirties guitars have a street price of $199.99 and are covered by Recording King’s industry-leading lifetime warranty – even if you live in the Dust Bowl. They're the perfect guitar for your store wall, for a gift, or even for your own arsenal.

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.
