Recording King

In the US Recording King is a brand name with a lot of American heritage. It’s a working man’s pre-war instrument, accessible to everyone, with incredible value and high-end features.

Originally a house brand in the 1930’s for Montgomery Ward, Recording King acoustic guitars and banjos were developed in a period known as the Golden Age of musical craftsmanship.

Today’s reissues have the look, feel and sound of the classic models and bring to market new designs with impeccable workmanship and enhancements for contemporary players.
All Recording King models are made for the long-term – you can hand a Recording King instrument down from generation to generation. This is what they strive for in each handmade model.
