Recording King Delivers with 30-Year-Old Adirondack Top Dreadnoughts

Nashville, TN -- Recording King introduces the RD-328, a booming, traditionally-styled dreadnought with a top built from 30-year-old Adirondack spruce from our tonewood reserves.

The Recording King RD-328 evokes classic dreadnought style, sound and volume thanks to hand-selected tonewoods and vintage styling.

The foundation of the 328’s tone comes from solid Adirondack spruce tops that have been naturally aging for the past 30 years. Adirondack’s excellent projection, coupled with three decades of curing delivers a stiff, loud, lightweight top with powerful fundamental tone.

Combine the aged tops with solid Rosewood back and sides, and you have the all-solid basics for guitars that have powered genres like bluegrass and country for decades.

The 328 is finished with classy, low-key fretboard dots on the rosewood fretboard, and a vintage-style tortoise pickguard protecting the top. The classic rosette design and herringbone body purfling complete the traditional look.

For players that need the power and volume that only a dreadnought can provide, but still want the warmth and vibrancy that comes with aged tonewoods, the RD-328 offers the best of both worlds at a fraction of the price of a vintage instrument.

  • Solid 30-year-old Adirondack Spruce top

  • Solid Rosewood Back and Sides

  • Rosewood Fretboard

  • Herringbone Purfling, Classic Rosette

The same aged Adirondack tops are used to build the RD-318 dreadnought, substituting solid mahogany back and sides for mahogany-loving players.
