The Recording King 1000 Deluxe Special combines countless hours of hands-on craftsmanship with the highest-quality components available.

Sonically, the 1000 Deluxe Special delivers everything players expect from an authentic-sounding pre-war instrument, but one look at the curly maple neck or burl maple resonator immediately reminds you that this is no ordinary instrument.

We've finished the Deluxe Special with beautiful gold sparkle binding and 24K gold-plated hardware custom engraved by Greg Rich. Collectors will fall in love with its looks, and players won't be able to resist the pull of the classic pre-war sound.
