The Recording King ROS-647 Acoustic Guitar is perfect for fingerpickers who want amazing looks as well as amazing sounds. The body is crafted from hand-selected solid East Indian rosewood for deep mid and low presence, while the OOO-sized guitar's solid AA Sitka spruce top offers balanced tone and excellent projection.
The ROS-647 guitar's neck—hewn from a single piece of mahogany—joins the body at the 12th fret. Recording King adds hand-inlaid abalone purfling to the Century Series guitar's body and rosette for a luxurious appearance.
Fully-scalloped bracing enhances the guitar's projection and clarity. The ebony fretboard offers strength, crisp tone, and a highly desirable look. Other notable appointments include a slotted rosewood headstock, Grover butterbean tuners, bone saddle and nut, ivory and ebony dot bridge pins, a pyramid bridge, and a natural finish.
The classic 1920's design of the 12th Fret 000 ROS-647 is the link between classical guitars and modern steel string models. Very lightweight, but carefully braced for tonal warmth, the 12th fret 000 has earned a well-deserved spot in the pantheon of great-sounding guitar shapes.
The guitar's combination of the 12th fret neck joint and the resulting altered bridge creates a richer, mellower sound than many of today's brighter-sounding body shapes. Matching the rich tone and clear string separation typical of a classical guitar with the projection of a traditional steel string, the Recording King guitar's 12th fret shape gives guitarists the best of both worlds.
