OVERVIEW

Designed for guitarists wanting a true, authentic banjo sound in a familiar feel.

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 1-11/16" 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.

Comments about Recording King 6-String Banjo:

Expect some setup work. Need to change the strings and set the bridge. Will also need to adjust/tighten the head. It comes with tools which is nice but no instructions. The wood and chrome may need sprucing up, that's a Recording King issue.
