OVERVIEW

With exceptional tone, this handcrafted banjo will appeal to players and collectors.

The Recording King Soloist banjo has all the outstanding features of their Professional mahogany model, but with a beautiful flamed maple resonator and figured neck. The RK-R85-SN Soloist also features a glorious sunburst finish for a classic, woodsy look.

This resonator banjo combines classic pre-war style features and desirable modern touches to create the ultimate bluegrass banjo. This model features a flamed maple resonator, figured maple neck, bound ebony fretboard, American Standard thread hardware, 20-hole tone ring and a 3-ply rim. Designed by Greg Rich, this model recalls the most supremely crafted banjos from the Golden Age of musical instruments.

The Soloist features the traditional Recording King floral peghead and inlay and an authentic Mastertone-style flange.
