Recording King Introduces the New Greenwich Village Guitar

In the spirit of one of the most famous “lost” guitars in history, the Greenwich Village has loads of vintage vibe and tone.

Hayward, CA (Jan 20, 2012)— Recording King’s new 13-Fret Greenwich Village has a 4/12” deep body for extra tone and projection in a small-body instrument with a dreadnought scale length.

In the spirit of one of the most famous “lost” guitars in history, the Greenwich Village has loads of vintage vibe and tone. With an extra-deep body, 13-fret neck joint and classic Recording King headstock. The 4-1/2” deep body gives it extra projection, the 13-fret neck and bridge placement makes for perfect resonance across all registers, and the 25.4” dreadnought scale length gives it added punch and volume.

The Greenwich Village comes with your choice of all-solid (RNJ-26) with a solid Sitka spruce top and solid Mahogany back and sides, or solid top (RNJ-17) with a solid Sitka top and Rosewood back and sides. The 1-3/4” bone nut is perfectly comfortable for fingerpicking or strumming and both Greenwich Village models come with a traditional firestripe pickguard and Bell Flower and Diamond fretboard inlay for an added touch of classic style.

The Greenwich Village is available for $549.99 with solid Sitka top and Rosewood back and sides.

Guitars are the best. We love them. It’s fun to fall in love with a guitar at a store, buy it, and proudly bring it home. But we’ve all been there … where after a month that new guitar is just not playing as good as it was before. As guitar players, we know what feels good and what feels bad when it comes to playability. Maybe you have setup preferences that you like on all your guitars, or maybe you want to experiment with changes to your setup?
