Over the last few years, we've been really impressed by what Recording King does with their Dirty '30s Size 0 guitars. We discovered them at the NAMM show a few years ago, and while Recording King has a great line of quality products, we were particularly impressed by the Size 0 12-fret parlor models. With slick finishes and interesting features not often found at this price range (this one's a resonator!), these small-body axes are great to kick around the living room, and they're an unbelievable a value. The build quality is solid, and the tone is really nice. These simple, unassuming parlor guitars will find a home even amongst the most distinguished high-end collection.
More info from Recording King:
"Recording King's Dirty 30s Resonator delivers tons of classic style and a vintage resonator tone perfect for old-school blues and slide players. The single 0 size resonator drips with vibe, from the f-holes and tailpiece to the Wabash Blue matte finish.
Traditional resonator sound is delivered from a hand-spun European 9.5" cone in a pedestal soundwell. Soundposts support the circle of the soundwell and the cone vibrations are free to bounce within the full cavity of the body. The f-holes are placed to optimize bass and treble frequencies as they exit the body for the perfect dry, throaty resonator tone.
Whether you're a songwriter who wants vintage blues or slide sound, or a first-time player who wants something a little cooler, get traditional resonator tone in a road-worthy small body from the Recording King Dirty 30's Resonator single 0. Recording King's Dirty 30's Series gives players authentic vintage style with the reliability of modern design."
