We have the newest edition of the flamed maple Recording King RK R85 Elite ready to order. This banjo looks fantastic. The RK85 Recording King banjo has a flamed maple neck and resonator. Structurally it is the same as their previous red cherry limited edition RK85 except the newest RK85 has the amazing color of this finish and the way the neck and resonator is flamed and looks.
These photos I have were taken informally by the designer of Recording King banjos, Greg Rich. This newest model isn't on the Recording King website yet but it is available for order now.
The Golden flamed maple RK R85 Elite is designed to the specs of the original Mastertone banjos of the 1930's, the RK Elite 85 offers players classic vintage snap and handcrafted construction. Professional components like a classic Mastertone-style tone ring and true steam-bent 3-ply maple rim provide the fundamentals for traditional banjo tone. The highly-flamed maple resonator & neck and sunburst nitrocellulose lacquer finish result in a stunning banjo with excellent projection and beautiful aesthetics. With classic design features like the vintage-style double-cut Recording King peghead and custom Hearts & Flowers-style peghead and fretboard inlay, the Elite 85 combines historic banjo tradition with modern construction for a true top shelf instrument.
