Recording King RD-318 Guitar
The Recording King RD-318 evokes classic dreadnought style, sound and volume thanks to hand-selected tonewoods and vintage styling.
The foundation of the 318’s tone comes from solid aged Adirondack spruce tops. Adirondack’s excellent projection, coupled with three decades of curing delivers a stiff, loud, lightweight top with powerful fundamental tone.
Combine the aged tops with solid Mahogany back and sides, and you have the all-solid basics for guitars that have powered genres like bluegrass and country for decades.
We finish the 318 with classy, low-key fretboard dots on the rosewood fretboard, and a vintage-style black pickguard to protect the top. The 318’s classic rosette design and tortoise binding complete the traditional look.
For players that need the power and volume that only a dreadnought can provide, but still want the warmth and vibrancy that comes with aged tonewoods, the RD-318 offers the best of both worlds at a fraction of the price of a vintage instrument
