Recording King ROST-7-TS Dirty 30s Series 7 Tenor 000 Acoustic Guitar

*Please Note: Images are representative of model. Actual serial numbers may vary.

Recording King’s mid-20th-Century vibe continues with the introduction of the Dirty 30s Tenor Guitar. Featuring enhanced sonic benefits from RK’s exclusive CrossLap bracing and bone nut and saddle, this comfortable 23" scale tenor guitar is sure to introduce the joy of playing tenor to a whole new audience.

Players have been asking Recording King designers for years to release an affordable tenor guitar in the Dirty 30s style. The Recording King Series 7 Tenor guitar gives jazz, folk, and old-time guitarists (and banjo players!) a high-value, mojo-packed, great-sounding tenor to add to their collections.  

The tenor guitar, generally tuned CGDA, has long been a staple of old-time players and has continued to pique the interest of the mainstream musicians looking to augment their sound. 

Recording King’s Series 7 Tenor Guitar has a familiar 000-size body, with the same retro aesthetic as other Dirty 30s models. The 23” scale makes it easy to navigate the entire fretboard, and the bone nut & saddle insure resonance at all the string contact points. RK’s exclusive CrossLap bracing results in an extra-responsive top to help you cut through the mix.

There are a few other tenor guitars on the market, but none that pack the Series 7’s combination of excellent tone, vintage mojo and incredible value.
