Maple tonewoods, hand-spun cone and classic design.

The RR-55 roundneck all-maple resonator delivers a brighter sound that modern slide and blues players will love. The hand-spun Recording King spider cone gives it powerful resonator tone immediately familiar to roots music aficionados. The traditional-style soundwell and soundholes are placed to optimize bass and treble frequencies as they exit the body for the perfect dry, throaty resonator sound. The maple neck and body give the 55 a bright, brassy sound, and a bone nut and bell brass tailpiece completes the classic design, accentuating the crisp metallic resophonic tone players demand.

    Comments about Recording King RR-55 Performer Roundneck Resonator Guitar:

    I play as a hobby just to enjoy music. I have owned several resonators, including a Republic, a Washburn, a Gretsch and a hound dog. I seem to be in the minority but I much prefer a spider cone because they have a sweeter purer tone. To me this Recording king has the best tone of any I have owned. This is my opinion and is not meant as a putdown of any of the others. The action is fairly low. I had to make a slight adjustment to the truss rod as there was a little too much relief. The fit and finish is excellent. It has quality Grovers which I think is a plus. It seems to be a sturdy well built instrument. The intonation is excellent also. It costs a little more than some of the other low end resonators, but with the build quality and good tuners I feel it was worth it. I am extremely happy with this guitar. I am glad I am on vacation because it's hard to put down.
