      Recording King Dirty Thirties Solid Top Single O (H94645)
Availability:  


A solid spruce top and period refinements make this vintage-style O guitar a winner.

The Dirty Thirties Dust Bowl-inspired Single O is meant to sound great wherever the road takes you. With a solid top and old-style matte sunburst finish, it sits at the perfect crossroads of classic sound, vintage style and exceptional value. Like the original Montgomery Ward mail order guitars in the first half of the century, the Dirty Thirties Single O is the perfect companion for singer-songwriters, folk stylists or traveling troubadours.

All of Recording King's Dirty Thirties guitars start with a solid Spruce top and rosewood fretboard, with bone nut and saddle. They’ve finished each guitar with classic extra-large fretboard dots, aged ivoroid body binding, satin sunburst finish, vintage-inspired tuning keys and the historic Recording King headstock.

The Dirty Thirties Series packs excellent playability and historic vibe into an ultra-affordable package that makes vintage style accessible to even the most budget-conscious players. Case sold separately.

  • NICE PARLOR GUITAR for the money .....

    As reviewed by Shanti Goble on 7/5/2013

    Had my doubts about purchasing such an in-expensive sight unseen guitar, but the specs looked right, so i ordered. It is such a great little guitar for the money!!! The workmanship is exceptable/good actually; but im coming from a history of Martins and Taylors so i may be a bit more critical. I wanted a smaller FINGERSTYLE guitar that was fun and easy to play while still managing to sound like a guitar and not some $25.00 beginner toy. I was pleasantly surprised at the excellent projection of mid-tones while the bass and highs are more balanced and not over-powering. If you're looking for all of the above I highly recommend this little guitar.... and its so portable you'll be taking it places you wouldnt think of taking your expensive dread.!!!

  • For the price a great lil instrument!

    As reviewed by CHRISTOPHER WATSON on 5/28/2013

    I been wanting to try this series of recording king guitars out for some time. I used to own a RD06 and for what it was, it played very very well. When this line came out I seen the price tag, the vintage 30's throwback vibe and had to try em out. I preferred the 000 on looks and was drawn to it. But this lil thing was hanging right beside so I gave it a play. Great lil boxy bluesey tone and very responsive and well put together. Felt kind of light, I think it's made from pine of some kind. But hey, this is no 3000$ guitar.That being said it is well built for an instrument in that price range! Well worth looking into if you are a pro player looking for a great playing "beater" guitar or for a young learner, due to it's size and price. You can't really go wrong with this guitar!

  • Nice parlor guitar that won't break the bank

    As reviewed by Scott on 12/21/2014

    Everyone seems to be getting on the parlor guitar bandwagon these days. And some of the prices for them are through the roof. But this Recording King has some nice features (solid spruce top, decent tuning keys, bone nut and saddle) for an incredible price. The body is smaller than a vintage Gibson single 0 which gives this guitar a slightly thinner sound. And hey, you're not getting 70 or 80 year old wood with a new guitar. But I find the sound balanced and the neck nicely shaped and sized. I've played several of these in stores and was not keen on ordering online since I like to play guitars before I buy them. But I was happy when I tuned it up that intonation was fine and the guitar had a good ring to it. The action, though, was set up too high for my taste, so I am currently having a pro setup done on it. The finish was quite good and the workmanship seems to be excellent. It reminds me of what the early student guitars (that are not collector's items) must have been like in the "dirty thirties." It's nice to be able to buy a new one for student guitar prices. I also bought the case that is made for this guitar. It fits nicely and I like the protection of a hard case. Looking forward to using this guitar for many years to come.
