    High quality construction, beautiful sound and looks. Recording King makes some quality banjos, and this is one of their best.

  • Great Banjo

    As reviewed by JOHN THOMAS on 7/23/2013

    This is my second Banjo and I absolutely love this instrument. Great tone, playability and looks. Instrument is put together very well. I wanted a banjo that looked as good as it sounded and I found it in the RK-80. Make sure it is set up properly. You will not be disappointed.
