OVERVIEW

Beautiful "O" shape guitar with cutaway.

This is a classic parlor guitar body shape with the unusual addition of a cutaway for access to upper frets. It is a great fingerstyle guitar, as smaller acoustic cavities tend to have a quick and present response. It is a beautifully made, very handsome guitar, with complementary select tonewoods working together to make a guitar with a sharp playing response, warm and engaging tone and excellent playability. The top blends beautifully with the back and sides, and the purfling and binding in turn add just the right accent. This instrument is an ideal house pet, making the room come alive with colorful sound, rich and complex in timbre, and plenty loud enough for singalongs.

If you are unfamiliar with the torrefaction process, it behooves you to read a bit from Recording King's website on what it is and what it does for tonewoods. "Torrefaction is a specialized heating process used on our Adirondack spruce tops in which the wood is heated at a low temparature in an oxygen-free environment. This curing process reduces impurities in the wood and results in weight reduction and increased stiffness, producing a similar chemical transformation as wood that has been dried for decades. The end result is a lightweight, resonant top that produces similar tone to a vintage instrument that has been played for decades."

Comments about Recording King Studio Series 12 Fret Cutaway ThermoCure Top 0 Acoustic Guitar:

The guitar really looks good, but mine had two obvious flaws in the clear coat on the top, plus has over-applied clear at base of neck next to sound hole.
I had high expectations for sound, but it felt about like an entry laminate body, not a guitar of this price..
Not a bad guitar, just fell short of my expectations for the money. I may try one of their solid wood models...maybe.
