OVERVIEW

The most traditional pre-war style Recording King banjo yet.

The Recording King RK-ELITE Elite Traditional Banjo is modeled after the original Mastertone banjos of the 1930's. The Recording King RK Elite offers players vintage sound and handcrafted construction. Professional components like a classic Mastertone-style tone ring, true steam-bent 3-ply maple rim and nitrocellulose lacquer finish put this banjo in a category by itself. With classic design features like the vintage-style double-cut Recording King peghead and custom Flying Eagle-style peghead and fretboard inlay, this banjo proudly carries forward the tradition of one of the history's most revered instrument manufacturers. Includes case.
