The beautifully engraved Artist Deluxe model is a complete revival of the most classic Recording King banjos. With genuine gold-plated hardware, a delicate floral engraving on the hoop and armrest, and a flamed maple resonator, this is the most premium Recording King model available.

The Artist Deluxe also features a figured maple neck, the traditional Recording King floral peghead and inlay and an authentic Mastertone-style flange.

This model combines classic pre-war style features and desirable modern touches to create a truly historical banjo. The Artist Deluxe also has a bound ebony fretboard, American Standard thread hardware, 20-hole tone ring and a 3-ply rim. Designed by Greg Rich, this model recalls the most supremely crafted banjos from the Golden Age of musical instruments.
