Photo for Ad 158268


Case: Original hardshell case

This RK-Elite-75 comes to us in great shape, needing nothing and ready to be played. Railroad spikes have been installed at 7 & 9. Here's the rundown from Recording King:

The Elite Flying Eagle
Mahogany Resonator & Neck
20 Hole Bell Brass Tone Ring
27-3/8” Scale Length
Deluxe Hardshell Case

Modeled after the original Mastertone banjos of the 1930's, the Recording King RK-Elite offers players vintage sound and handcrafted construction.

Professional components like a classic Mastertone-style tone ring and true steam-bent 3-ply maple rim put this banjo in a category by itself.

With classic design features like the vintage-style double-cut Recording King peghead and custom Flying Eagle-style inlay, this banjo proudly wears its historic heritage.

The 27-3/8" scale delivers extra punch, combining traditional sound and looks with modern power.
