OVERVIEW

A compact guitar with a solid spruce top and surprising depth of tone.

In the spirit of one of the most famous “lost” guitars in history, the Greenwich Village has loads of vintage vibe and tone. With an extra-deep body, 13-fret neck joint and classic Recording King headstock, this guitar honors both Golden Age film troubadours like Nick Lucas and historic folk singers from the 1960’s. The 4-1/2” deep body gives it extra projection, the 13-fret neck and bridge placement makes for perfect resonance across all registers, and the 25.4” dreadnought scale length gives it added punch and volume.

The Greenwich Village comes with a solid Sitka top and Rosewood back and sides. The 1-3/4” bone nut is perfectly comfortable for fingerpicking or strumming and both Greenwich Village models come with a traditional firestripe pickguard and Bell Flower and Diamond fretboard inlay for an added touch of classic style.

FEATURES
  • Compact body size with extra depth
  • X-braced solid sitka spruce top
  • Rosewood back and sides
  • Mahogany neck with thin C profile and rosewood fingerboard
  • Bone nut and compensated saddle

Enjoy beautiful sound and excellent build quality with your next guitar. Order today.

          Comments about Recording King RNJ-17 Greenwich Village Acoustic Guitar:

          I did not buy my RNJ from MF but felt the previous (double) review was not completely fair. I have had my RNJ for about 6 months and love it. The wide neck makes it easier for me to play. This little guitar is my go to guitar out of the half a dozen I own. The sound is great the action is fantastic and the price won't break the bank.

                The guitar arrived without the pickguard. Musicians Friend offered to send me one but didn't have the one pictured in the ad. I contacted Recording King…they sent me info instead on their warranty policy, blah, blah, blah. You'd think they could just send me a pickguard. The guitar itself is ok…nothing special. Looks a lot cooler with the pickguard that's pictured in the ad. I don't think I'll be buying any more guitars from Recording King. You'd think a small company would have better customers service than what I experienced.
