The Hayward, California-based Recording King has introduced their new 13-Fret Greenwich Village acoustic guitar. It has a 4.5-inch deep body for extra tone and projection in a small-body instrument. With its extra-deep body, 13-fret neck joint and classic headstock, the guitar honors Golden Age film troubadours like Nick Lucas and folk singers from the 1960s. The deep body gives it extra projection, the 13-fret neck and bridge placement makes for perfect resonance across all registers, and the 25.4-inch dreadnought-scale length gives it punch and volume.

During this holiday season, I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I’ve been asked to recommend a good acoustic. Considering that there are so many great acoustics to check out, it would be difficult for me to use this space to cover each one because they are available at just about every price point so that the question actually becomes, “Well, how much are you willing to spend?”
