Inexpensive factory Reso. Recording King for $250.00 U.S.

I went to the guitar store thinking to buy a Taylor GS Mini. The Taylor sounded wonderful, but I have an arthritic right shoulder (old dirt bike racing thing) and I need a small body guitar to be comfortable.

This one sounded good to me at the store. I was thrilled to get it home and like it even better at home, especially in open D or E. This is open E.

I may try extra light strings to turn down the volume.

:D

 Hi Rick.  It is fun having this guitar.  I am still better and more comfortable on fewer strings.  But I can do quite a bit with the Recording King.  If you can, go somewhere and test ride them rather than ordering one untouched.   

Sand lot football. Those were fun and rough days.  For a while we were doing knee football.  You couldn't get up on your feet and a tackle was a shoulder of back on the ground.

I’ve been eying these on eBay and even Walmart for around that price range, mighty tempting after listening to yours. Wonderful sounds and song. My left shoulder, same thing, playing tackle football in my late thirties with college dudes! We wear our mistakes sir!

Thanks, Ambrose.   I like it pretty well too.  I don't know how many songs I have started (a lot) semi-completed (20-30?), but I do have 7 or 8 that to me are keepers.

Jake wants baritone strings?   He hasn't mentioned it to me.   I like Jake best in open E.

Comment by Daniel Walter on November 6, 2019 at 4:22pm

Jake told me he wants a light set of baritone strings.
