Brian and I were recently at Schoenberg Guitars in beautiful Tiburon, California and even though we went in eager to see some low-priced Blueridge 000′s, we came out awfully excited about the new Recording King Century Series guitars. With your invested savings dwindling in the market, there has never been a better time to consider a foreign-made (i.e., cheaper) alternative to a new American guitar. The new Recording King ROS-626 – part of their Century Series – seems like a great choice. It is a smaller body guitar based on a 1902 original with only 12 frets. It is very comfortable in your lap and very nice for fingerpicking.
In addition, despite its low price, its specs are top-notch. It features an AAA solid Sitka spruce top, solid figured mahogany back
and sides, one-piece mahogany neck with a vintage ‘V’ profile and
slotted headstock. It is also quite a stunner in person. In addition to the photo here, check out some more photos from Schoenberg. At under $750 street price ($699 from Schoenberg), this one is definitely worth a look.
