Overview

Recording King's Dirty 30's 12-string dreadnought combines the classic jangle-y chorus of a 12-string with style right out of a 1930's mail-order catalog, perfect for players who want to add a cool, easy-to-play 12-string to the collection.

The foundation of classic 12-string tone comes from the solid spruce top. A bone nut and saddle help the strings resonate freely and insure tuning stability. The comfortable 25.4 scale is comfortable and familiar to most acoustic players. Like all Dirty 30's guitars, the 12-string has an authentic vintage-style matte sunburst finish.

Whether you're a songwriter who wants to add texture to your writing, or a rhythm player looking for something cool that plays like an old friend, get vibrant 12-string tone from the Recording King Dirty 30's 12-string. Recording King's Dirty 30's Series gives players authentic vintage style with the reliability of modern design.

    Comments about Recording King Dirty 30's 12-String Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

    I ordered one of these and it sounded great! The first tuning was tricky, but I got used to it. It was damaged during shipping and i noticed a broken neck after a week of playing it. It was backordered but GC offered me a trade up I couldn't refuse. If it had electronics, I would have ordered another one.

    Comments about Recording King Dirty 30's 12-String Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

    Best 12-string you can get without electronics in its price class. Plays well with an acoustic pickup. Hard to stay in tune at first, but one it is in tune, generally stays in tune. If you are unsure if you want the cross into the 12-string genre, this is a great starter.

    Comments about Recording King Dirty 30's 12-String Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

    A friend asked me if I could recommend a 12 string for under $500. I'm familiar with Recording King. Own one of their dreads but also have Martins, Larrivees, and Gibson AJ. I had never played their 12 string but their quality has gotten pretty good. He ordered one from GC. I saw it today. They action was better on it than almost any other 12 string I've ever played. Right out of the box. And . . . It sounded like a 12 string guitar. He was very happy and I will likely get one myself. A third friend with us said he like to get one as well. He may have gotten an especially good one but we all were impressed with it.
