OVERVIEW

The perfect combination of guitar-style playability with banjo appointments.

The Recording King Madison 6-string banjo is the perfect combination of guitar-style playability with banjo appointments. Based on the banjo designs of the best-selling Madison series RK-R25, the Madison 6-string is assembled with a maple resonator, tube-and-plate style 2-piece flange, and dual coordinator rods. It also takes a nod from Recording King's guitar line, with a truss-rod-adjustable maple neck and a full 25.4” dreadnought scale length.

The 1-11/16" nut with allows for comfortable banjo picking, but is still narrow enough to fret chords comfortably. The bone nut and maple/ebony bridge help deliver the percussive sound banjo players love. We've finished it off with high-quality Grover butterbean tuners, classic nickel-plated hardware and a hand-rubbed brown satin finish.

Designed specifically for guitarists that need a true, authentic banjo sound in a familiar feel, the RK-G25-BR is like nothing else in its price range. Case sold separately.

    Comments about Recording King Madison RK-G25-BR 6-String Banjo:

    I'm a 69 years old double retiree. I've played guitar all my life. I've always wanted a banjitar to play around with. I bought this at a reduced "Open box" price, and it is well worth the money. I don't know if I could have justified the retail price to myself or my wife sight unseen. I can say now that I believe I got a real bargain and that it is also well worth the retail price.

    I'm developing arthritis in my left thumb, and a wider neck gets painful after a few minutes of playing. The neck on this beast would be welcome on any of my electric guitars. It is comfortably narrow and built solid as a rock. All of the other hardware looks top notch. The action came a tad high, but I'll address that once I decide whether or not to put treble strings on 5 and 6. Better for it to come a little high than too low.

    I was glad to confirm what I thought I saw in the pictures. Standard acoustic and electric guitar strings fit right over the little pins on the tailpiece with no modification. The strings that came on it were in pretty bad shape; Based on some posts on various sites, I changed them out to D'Addario XL super lights, and I like the feel and sound so far.

    It is heavy, but I sort of expected that. The tone is good and the volume is loud. I'm not an expert on the tone, but it meets all of my desires and expectations.

    Overall, workmanship, playability and tone are great.

      one of the nuts to the head tightening J bolts was missing but was in the box also the high E string on the banjo was cut so short that it will not grap tuning peg to allow tuning....I will have to get a new string.
