New Deco King Banjo from Recording King

Inspired by the great designs of Art Deco, a new banjo from Recording King showcases the decorative craftsmanship and high-end features of the pre-war movement. The Deco King Banjo (RK-R60) is covered with luminous pearloid on the back of resonator as well as on the peghead. There is also a “deco flower” pattern on both the resonator back and peghead and a deco fretboard inlay in M.O.P.

The Deco King comes with a one-piece resonator, a one-piece neck, 3-ply maple rim, nickel-plated hardware, a bound ebony fretboard and American Standard thread hardware. This model has a black gloss finish on the rim, resonator sides and neck.

The Deco King also features the traditional Recording King peghead and an authentic Mastertone-style tone ring and flange. Each model includes a vintage hardshell case with a brass Recording King nameplate.

Recording King banjos are a complete revival of one of the most classic product lines of the early 20th century.

Chris Quinn of The Foggy Hogtown Boys endorses the RK-R60 for its beautiful design and classic Recording King tone.

The Deco King banjo lists at $1,599.99 with case. Each banjo is protected with a lifetime warranty.
