Part of our tone wood Reserve Series, the Recording King RD-318 evokes classic dreadnought style, sound and volume thanks to hand-selected tone woods and vintage styling. The foundation of the 318’s tone comes from solid Adirondack spruce tops that we've been naturally aging for the past 30 years. Adirondack’s excellent projection, coupled with three decades of curing delivers a stiff, loud, lightweight top with powerful fundamental tone. Combine the aged tops with solid mahogany back and sides, and you have the all-solid basics for guitars that have powered genres like bluegrass and country For decades. We finish the 318 with classy, low-key fretboard Dots on the Rosewood fretboard, and a vintage-style tortoise pickguard to protect the top. For players that need the Power and volume that only a dreadnought can provide, but still want the warmth and vibrancy that comes with aged tone woods, the RD-318 offers the best of both worlds at a fraction of the price of a vintage instrument.
