Recording King Banjos

If you’re looking to play a little piece of American history, look no further than Recording King. Starting as a house brand for Montgomery Ward in the ‘30s, Recording King’s acoustic guitars, banjos, resonators and lap steels were developed and originally crafted during what many consider the Golden Age of acoustic instrument making. Used by the likes of legendary guitarist John Fahey, Christian Letts of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and Jonathan Devoto of The Matches, the vintage look, feel and sound of these instruments is unparalleled.
