      Comments about Recording King RD-227 All Solid Wood Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

      I changed my mind as I noticed the harmonics weren't quite there. I am trading for a Taylor 110ce as it sounded excellent when I tried one a few weeks back.

          Comments about Recording King RD-227 All Solid Wood Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

          This guitar sounds full and bright. It is a beautifully crafted solid-wood guitar. I am puzzled as to why there are even 2 used ones for sale. I would never let this guitar out of my collection. It rings and it sings. The neck at the nut is wide and great if you have thick fingers. Also get is set up at a luthier or guitar-mechanic shop. It is a touch high. If you are looking for the most bang for the buck in a gorgeous solid-wood guitar that has volume look no further.
