Recording King Dirty 30's A-Style Mandolin

Photo for Ad 158321

The Dirty 30’s Mandolin is a great option for players who want classic old-time style without the price tag of a vintage instrument. The solid spruce top gives it classic chop and projection, while the maple back and sides balance brightness and warmth for traditional old-time playing. The f-holes have been specifically shaped for sound aperture, and the 1-3/4” body depth was chosen specifically to accentuate its tonal capabilities. For vintage mojo, it’s stained tobacco sunburst then covered by a thin satin finish. The classic A-style body connects to a comfortable C-shaped neck with a mini-Recording King Jubilee headstock. Ivory tuners and classy MOP fretboard dots give it a rustic but refined look.
