Dirty 30’s Series 9 Parlor

  • Solid Sitka Spruce Top

  • 24.2" Scale Length

  • Cross Lap X Bracing

  • Bound Soundhole

  • 1-11/16" Nut Width


A modern update of a classic turn-of-the-century guitar. It's perfect for guitar history buffs, recording engineers, front-porch blues players, and thanks to the smaller body size and shorter scale length, beginners who need a compact, easy to play, great-sounding instrument.

The traditional parlor-size body is based on a historic Lyon & Healy model. It's built with a solid spruce top for classic tone, comfortable ovangkol fretboard with stencil fret markers, a 24.2" scale length and a bone nut and saddle for excellent string/body resonance.

Recording King guitars combine vintage design with modern upgrades for players, and the Dirty 30's Parlor is no exception. Many turn-of-the-century small-body guitars were made with ladder bracing, but the Dirty 30's Parlor benefits from x-bracing designed to accommodate modern string tension but retain the sound of the vintage parlor guitars.

The Recording King Dirty 30's Parlor is finished in dark tobacco sunburst. With true parlor size, vintage design, and modern upgrades, the Dirty 30's Parlor is the guitar for players with one foot in the past and the other in the present.
