The Recording King RK-Elite-75 is styled after Gibson’s flat-head Mastertone RB-75 of the 1930’s. A very finely made instrument, the Elite 75 features a mahogany neck and resonator, 3-ply hard maple rim, flat-head Mastertone style tone ring and one piece flange, notched brass tension hoop, and vintage style hooks. Bound ebony fingerboard with pearl inlays, Presto tailpiece, Gotoh planetary tuners, and gloss finish. Fast slim profile neck with a 27-3/8” scale.

The Elite is an excellent sounding instrument, and one that’s attracted a lot of attention amongst bluegrass players throughout North America. It does what it’s supposed to do very well, and is widely thought of as an excellent substitute for a much more valuable pre-war Gibson or high-dollar modern instrument to use at jams or festivals.

This example is in excellent condition and beautifully set up. Apart from some pick wear to the surface of the head it shows just about no flaws or blemishes.

With original hardshell case
