Blem Recording King RD-318 Aged Adirondack Top


The Recording King RD-318 delivers classic dreadnought style, sound, and volume thanks to hand-selected tonewoods and classic styling. The foundation of the 318’s tone comes from a solid aged Adirondack spruce top that has been naturally aged for 30 years. Adirondack’s excellent projection, coupled with three decades of curing, creates a lightweight top with powerful fundamental tone. It’s paired with solid mahogany back and sides. Understated appointments include a black pickguard, vintage three ring rosette design, and Grover open gear tuners. The RD-318 offers the sound of aged tonewoods at a fraction of the price of a vintage instrument.
