OVERVIEW

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

In the spirit of one of the most famous œlost 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'. 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.

    OK guitar...lousy customer service

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

    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.
