Recording King has debuted its new Parlor Metal Body resonator.
The gorgeous guitar is built with a nickel-plated bell brass body, a maple/ebony biscuit bridge, a mahogany neck – with a 24-¼" scale and 1-¾" nut width – and the company's own full-size, hand-spun 9.5" cone.
This results in a resonator that, Recording King says, features "all the swampiness and midrange of classic biscuit-style metal bodies," but with "more treble shimmer, giving it extra top-end clarity."
The Recording King Parlor Metal Body Resonator is available now for $699.99.
