OVERVIEW

Lightweight but sturdy dreadnought specially made to give you vintage tone.

Torrefaction is a specialized heating process used on Recording King Adirondack (Red) spruce tops in which the wood is heated at a low temperature in an oxygen-free environment. The 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, extra resonant top that produces similar tone to a vintage instrument that's been loved and played for years.

The RD-T16 has a solid torrefied Adirondack spruce top that provides the foundation for Recording King's Torrefied Series Dreadnought. The tone of the torrefied top is impressive, and when paired with the mahogany back and sides results in guitars with extra punch, projection and warm, vintage-style tone everywhere on the fretboard.

Whether you're a singer-songwriter or fingerpicker, the Recording King Torrefied Series guitars are an excellent way to achieve rich, old school tone in a modern instrument.
