Recording King Century Studio Series Acoustics Review
Recording King, recordingking.com
Starting at $999.00
What is it about 12-fret acoustics that make purists salivate? Is it because these small-body instruments are deeply steeped in the classical and folk guitar tradition, or because Satan-obsessed bluesmen like Robert Johnson played them? Whatever it is, these guitars look timeless and sound big, despite their diminutive size.
The new Recording King Century Studio Series illustrates the best that these instruments have to offer. Featuring solid Sitka spruce tops and one-piece mahogany necks with a vintage V profile and slotted headstock, Studio Series acoustics are built with lighter bracing, for more resonance, and an ebony pyramid bridge that provides greater vibration from the hand-selected tops. The nitrocellulose lacquer finish is dried for eight weeks to insure proper adhesion, and the gloss and matte finishes allow the guitars to sing powerfully and clearly. In addition, Century Studio Series guitars are available with a variety of options: the flagship ROS-647 is built with solid East Indian Rosewood back and sides, the ROS-626/627 models have a choice of solid African Mahogany or East Indian rosewood back and sides, and the ROS-616/606 guitars have African mahogany tops, backs and sides. With this many choices available at these prices, you won’t have to make a deal with the devil to get the acoustic of your dreams.
