The Troubadour guitar is built with the same care and attention to detail as all Recording King instruments. The Troubadour was designed based on the classic Nick Lucas style guitars of the 1920’s. To achieve the classic Recording King tone, the top is made of solid Sitka spruce and voiced with hand-shaped, fully scalloped x-bracing. The back and sides are made from mahogany. The 4 1/2” extra-deep body helps to add significant volume and bass for players looking for full, round tone and projection. The “C” profile neck is mahogany with dot inlay on the rosewood fretboard.
With a classic 1 3/4” nut width, a truly historic scale length of 24 3/4” and a bone nut and saddle, the Recording King Troubadour has been carefully assembled to fit vintage specifications down to every last detail.
Available with Fishman Sonitone EQ (RNJ-16FE3-SN).
