Recording King is excited to announce that the guitars from their collaboration with Eric Schoenberg are now available. They’ve built two models, a classic single 0 size cutaway, as well as a 00-size with a cutaway body. The Recording King RP1 and RP2 (pictured) offer players the even frequency response, clarity, and wider neck traditional to a classic parlor style, but the unique addition of a cutaway gives fingerstyle guitarists easier access to the upper frets. Eric Schoenberg’s influence on guitar marries traditional fingerstyle playing to classic ragtime and walking basslines. His “Fingerpicking Beatles” book is considered an essential text for modern fingerstyle players. Mr. Schoenberg prefers the 12-fret cutaway body because he believes the 12-fret neck joint gives the guitars a gutsier voice, and the cutaway is not so deep that it detracts from the sound. As Schoenberg describes it, the Recording King 0 and 00 guitars offer the best of both a 12-fret and a 14-fret neck joint, thanks to the cutaway. “When the (Recording King) ROS-626 model came out, I saw it and said, the quality is excellent, the style is great; a collaboration on something similar is just what I’ve been looking for,” Schoenberg explains. On both the RP1-626 and RP2-626, the one-piece mahogany neck with a classic v-profile meets the body at the 12-fret with a hand cut dovetail joint, giving these guitars a warm, rich and perfectly balanced sound. The solid AAA Engelmann spruce top and solid mahogany back and sides have been carefully selected and hand-assembled. With a 1-3/4” nut width, Grover tuners, ebony fretboard and ebony pyramid bridge, these 0 and 00 guitars are as well-appointed and unique as they are beautiful. Each guitar is sprayed with a thin coat of nitrocellulose lacquer and then hand-buffed for a finish that is extremely resonant and historically accurate. The RP1-626 and RP2-626 models have a MAP of $999 and have a lifetime warranty. Recording King is the manufacturer of professional quality acoustic guitar and banjos.
