OVERVIEW

A solid spruce top and period refinements make this vintage-style OOO guitar a winner.

The Dirty Thirties Dust Bowl-inspired OOO is meant to sound great wherever the road takes you. With a solid top and old-style matte sunburst finish, it sits 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 OOO is the perfect companion for singer-songwriters, folk stylists or traveling troubadours.

All of the Dirty Thirties guitars start with a solid Spruce top and rosewood fretboard, with bone nut and saddle. Recording King finished each guitar with classic extra-large fretboard dots, aged ivoroid body binding, satin sunburst finish, vintage-inspired tuning keys and the historic Recording King headstock.

The Dirty Thirties Series packs excellent playability and historic vibe into an ultra-affordable package that makes vintage style accessible to even the most budget-conscious players. Case sold separately.

    Comments about Recording King Dirty Thirties OOO Solid Top:

    I'm only a beginner but right away I noticed that this guitar just felt better to me. I think that it's smaller size as compared to the dreadnought styles I had been trying to use was what made it seem more playable. The sound is bright and full, though I can see that a change-out of the factory strings is on the horizon as soon as the 45 day return window passes. It's also very lightweight but seems to be of acceptable quality and construction.(at least for something in this price range) I did opt for the full replacement product warranty. Figured it was cheap peace of mind if nothing else.
    All in all, I'm pleased with my purchase thus far.

      Comments about Recording King Dirty Thirties OOO Solid Top:

      This guitar arrived last night. I have been looking for a smaller body guitar for my 15 year old daughter who is learning to play. The dreadnought guitars are not comfortable for her and she had been learning on a Korean made laminate top guitar from the 1980's. I had been checking out this guitar and with the price drop, pulled the trigger. I am extremely happy with the quality of construction and the sound of the guitar. Best of all, my daughter is really excited to play it. I will be sneaking it away from her from time to time because it is a fun little guitar.

              Comments about Recording King Dirty Thirties OOO Solid Top:

              It felt really nice to hold when I first took it out of the box. I was quite excited; I had read good reviews for this one.

              But I quickly found it sounded really dead, so I changed the strings (must've been cheap ones) and voila! That did the trick. The resonance is good. Though I am experiencing a bit of back buzz...

              Comments about Recording King Dirty Thirties OOO Solid Top:

              I was more than a little concerned when I tuned up and started to play. The guitar looked great, but sounded "dead," with little musicality to the supplied strings and no sustain at all. It just needed some top notch strings, though. I put on a set of Martin FX (flexible core) strings, .11-.47, and it started singing. Action is low enough that barre chords and fingerpicking are a snap. The melodies and words started coming and I can tell there will be many more. It's size will make it an ideal travel guitar. Great quality for some small change!!

              Comments about Recording King Dirty Thirties OOO Solid Top:

              I purchased the single O version and had a hard time putting it down so beforeI wore it out I took the time to order the Tpiple O which joins past the twelfth fret. These guitars are just fun to play. I own quite a few guitars and many of them are fantastic guitars yet I seem to have more fun with these just sitting around the studio. Buy one because you won't regret it. I saw some reviews where people had some issues. That is to be expected in a cheap guitar made in China, but Musician's Friend always makes the situation right.

                I traded some recording gear for this guitar and was impressed with how nice it played and its looks. I put a LR Baggs active pickup in the sound hole, and replaced the tuners with some Kluson/Gibson-style tuners. Looks like a Gibson and sounds great plugged-in live! Bone saddle, bone nut, great finish, on a guitar in this price range is great!
