Recording King unveils its USA Custom Shop, producing collector's banjos available exclusively through The Music Link.

Each banjo is designed and conceived, then hand-engraved, by former Gibson Banjo Custom Shop head Greg Rich. Each Recording King USA Custom Shop banjo is described as "a singular unique piece," with each of these limited edition models being custom, with none of the details repeated in future models.

 

The Avalon is the current Custom Shop model, featuring a curly maple neck with a radiused ebony fingerboard, deco block inlays, and hand inlaid headstock pearlwork. It is assembled with classic American-made 24K gold-plated top tension hardware, including a return to the historic top-tension resonator – featuring a true one-piece, handcarved maple resonator back.

 

Sonically it is powered by a Recording King Mastertone-style tone ring, and a hand-turned, hand fit 3-ply maple rim. Greg Rich hand-engraves the armrest and tailpiece with artwork desribed as "unique to the character of each Custom Shop banjo."

 

See the newest Recording King USA Custom Shop piece, The Avalon, at Summer NAMM, booth #1408.
