The RK R 75 is the top of the line of
Recording King Bluegrass banjos with resonator
The RK-R75 is all you'll ever need in a banjo and can't be beat in this price range. It's frankly not fair to the more expensive banjos to have a banjo you can purchase with this type of quality, look and TONE for this price.
The R 75 is a banjo that I would not hesitate to play professionally, take on the road and do it all with. If you get one of these you will never need to buy another one. (your spouse may be happy to hear that). It has a one piece flange, flathead tone ring, presto tailpiece, Flying eagle fingerboard inlay, the neck feels great and produces deep tone. The R 75 has the cool mastertone-style Flying Eagle peghead design and inlay that Don Reno, Bill Emerson and JD Crowe popularized.
RK R 75 Company Description
The RK-Elite is our most traditional Pre-war style banjo. 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, true steam-bent 3-ply maple rim and nitrocellulose lacquer finish 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 peghead and fretboard inlay, this banjo proudly carries forward the tradition of one of the history's most revered instrument manufacturers.
...all I can say is WOW!!! This banjo is killer, everything and more than I thought it would be!... read more reviews below
