Comments about Recording King ROS-10 12-Fret 000 Acoustic Guitar:

I recently started getting more interested in acoustic guitars after playing primarily electric for the past 40 years. After doing much review reading, I ended up ordering online both an ROS-06 and an ROS-10. After putting fresh strings on both instruments, I spent a few weeks comparing and evaluating.

The action on both instruments came set up spot-on perfectly from the factory, with wonderfully low action and perfect intonation. Fretwork is excellent, as is the overall fit and finish. These are very carefully constructed instruments, considering they are imported budget guitars. While some compromises are there in order to hit the targeted price point, these guitars don't feel "cheap."

I have traditionally favored guitars with very narrow necks, so I was surprised by how quickly I acclimated to and embraced the wide, flat neck of the ROS-06 (vs. the narrower, rounder neck of the ROS-10). I also found that the ROS-06 felt less stiff than the ROS-10, probably because of the difference in the string spacing.

Ultimately it came down to the tone that led me to keep the ROS-10 and return the ROS-06. On its own merits, the ROS-06 sounds fine, even wonderful. It has a nice, woody, smooth plumpness to its tone that is especially pleasant when picked with bare fingertips. However, played side by side with the ROS-10, and using the same type of strings, the ROS-06 was revealed to be comparatively dead-sounding, lacking the extra bit of sparkle, bite and complexity. The ROS-10 was also quite a bit louder and more dynamic than the ROS-06, which has an overall much softer tonal quality.

    Comments about Recording King ROS-10 12-Fret 000 Acoustic Guitar:

    This is an all around Solid Mahogany back and Side guitar with 1 3/4 inch nut and 2 5/16 inch at the bridge. A poor review of the Recording King ROS-10 guitar that stopped me from making my original purchase at the time "I have to quote the review that stated clearly" (A fine starter guitar). That remark made me hesitate for One Year. Needless to say I will never Buy a guitar from that Distributor for such a misguided statement. I am saying if this was American made it would never leave my house and be taken on a car, bus, plane, train or gigged where it could be damaged. So you have to say to yourself, "What can I do with it?" Everything for that price. Don't be foolish a solid wood GUITAR with the Recording King Specifications is good buy. Even this guitar never leaves my site. This 000 guitar is and always will be my GoTo Guitar. Not because its better than expensive guitars. Because its practical and sounds great! P.S "As always all guitars sound better and better when played daily" Just play it regularly and it will be broken in in a few months.

    Comments about Recording King ROS-10 12-Fret 000 Acoustic Guitar:

    Factory setup is fine enough for gigging. I can feel this guitar vibrate when I play it! The guitar is quite lively. I think the extended upper bout (due to the 12 fret design) causes the guitar to have an obvious more open sound compared to my 14 fret dreds. Works great palm muted, finger picked, or strummed. The balanced tone comes across quite nice even when mic'd. I now have a great deal of confidence in the Recording King brand. I am looking forward to purchasing one of their single O's.

      Comments about Recording King ROS-10 12-Fret 000 Acoustic Guitar:

      This is my first ever acoustic guitar so I'm not one to comment on how good it is comparison wise to other acoustics. But in saying that, everyone that has picked it up since I bought it has been a little shocked.

      When I had it professionally set-up, the guy hadn't heard of Recording King and was skeptical about the quality for the price. When I returned to pick it up, he said it felt and sounded like a guitar of at least twice the price.

      The guitar teacher then had a quick play and said, "You paid what?" He couldn't believe a guitar costing so little could impress him that much.

      A work collegue also played it last week and he was almost speechless. He said it had a few little flaws, nothing worth worrying about, but it sounded much like his Fender F85 which he has been playing since 1974. He also mentioned that his F85 was a solid top only, and because the ROS-10 has solid back and sides too, it should age better soundwise than his Fender.

      The ROS-10 does have a thick C neck and joins at the 12th fret, so if you want a thinner neck and a 14 fret guitar, try the RO-10 for a 000 shape, or the RD-10 for the Dreadnaught.

      If money isn't an issue, of course you'll fork out the cash for a Martin, Maton, Gibson, Taylor etc. But if you want a quality acoustic with solid top, back and sides without breaking the bank, one of the Recording King 10 Series models could be right up your alley.
