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 Hearts & Flowers-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.
