  • Image 1 of Rich & Taylor Recording King (c.1997) - SKU# 70U-4075 : Product Type Resonator Back Banjos : Elderly Instruments
    Built by Rich & Taylor, this is a very nice reproduction of a '30s Recording King. It features a maple resonator and neck, both with a nice sunburst finish. Period correct appointments include a Presto tailpiece, engraved armrest and tension hoop, and 5 Star tuners. There is a small area of repair on side of resonator, but overall this great vintage-inspired banjo is in excellent-minus condition.
