Recording King is proud to introduce our most traditional Pre-war style banjo ever. Modeled after the original Mastertone banjos of the 1930's, the Recording King RK Elite offers players vintage sound and handcrafted construction. Professional components like a classic Mastertone-style tone ring, true steam-bent 3-ply maple rim and nitrocellulose lacquer finish put this banjo in a category by itself. With classic design features like the vintage-style double-cut Recording King peghead and custom Flying Eagle-style peghead and fretboard inlay, this banjo proudly carries forward the tradition of one of the history's most revered instrument manufacturers.

Note: Our banjos are individually inspected, set up and tuned by the staff in Georgia.  We are banjo players, so we set them up the way we want to play them!  Each banjo is in tune when we carefully pack it for shipment.  Climate conditions and travel will affect the tuning, so it may need to be fine-tuned before playing.
