OVERVIEW

Brilliant resonant tones of generations past can be yours again.

The Recording King Metal Body Mandolin is one of the only mandolin resonators available today and the instrument with the most similar characteristics of the pre-war originals. Choose from the nickel-plated bell brass finish, the nickel-plated bell brass finish, with "Lily-of-The-Valley" back engraving, or the champagne matte finish, while they last.

Nickel-plated bell brass finish
This unique Recording King mandolin has a nickel-plated bell brass body, 10" hand-spun Continental cone and a beautiful pearloid headstock overlay.

Nickel-plated bell brass finish, with "Lily-of-The-Valley" back engraving
This Recording King mandolin has power, projection and style. With the Lily-of-the-Valley back engraving, 10" hand-spun Continental cone, and a beautiful pearloid headstock overlay, the resonator mandolin looks and sounds like an antique, custom mandolin.

Champagne matte finish
This unique mandolin has a matte champagne-finish, nickel-plated bell brass body, 10" hand-spun Continental cone, and a beautiful pearloid headstock overlay.

Includes featherweight case.
