Metal Body Tricone Squareneck Resonator

  • 3 Hand-Spun European Recording King Cones

  • 1-15/16" Nut Width

Recording King's classic tricone squareneck resonator has three 6" European Recording King cones transferring incredibly loud tones through the guitar body. Two bass side cones and one treble side cone combine for a sweet, warm EQ balance.

The nickel-plated bell brass body has a screen coverplate and T-shaped bridge with an ebony/maple saddle. 

The bridge connects to the center of each cone so that string vibrations run through the saddle and then into the bridge.

This tricone has a distinct tone and long sustain characterized by brilliant overtones and a natural ambiance only found in resonator instruments.
