The Recording King Dirty 30's Series 9 Parlour seeks to capture the tone and style of early 20th century, pre war acoustic guitars. These instruments have a distinctive sound and style, and can fetch huge sums on the vintage market. The Recording King range offers the same vintage vibe for a fraction of the price.
The Dirty 30's Series 9 Parlour features a solid Sitka Spruce top with cross lap X bracing. This bracing is a marked upgrade on the ladder bracing found on most vintage parlour acoustics, offering more resonance while retaining the vintage tone. The parlour body shape is based on the 'no logo' Lyon & Healy models of the 1930's, with a beautiful satin Tobacco Sunburst finish and stencil fret markers. The neck has a shorter 24.2" scale length with a playable vintage style profile, and a bone nut and saddle for added resonance. The Recording King Dirty 30's Series 9 Parlour offers the vintage looks and sound of a golden era finger style blues guitar without the vintage price tag.
Recording King specialise in bringing vintage acoustic tones and style of the past back to life for the modern player, with solid woods, modern appointments and classic Americana styling across the range. No. Tom Guitars are pleased to be the exclusive Central London dealer for Recording King Guitars & Resonators.
