Overview

The Recording King RK-R97-SN Artist Deluxe banjo is a beautifully engraved complete revival of the most classic Recording King banjos. With genuine gold-plated hardware, a delicate floral engraving on the hoop and armrest, and a flamed maple resonator, the RK-R97-SN banjo is the most premium Recording King model available.

The Artist Deluxe banjo also features a figured maple neck, the traditional Recording King floral peghead and fretboard inlay and an authentic Mastertone-style flange.

This Recording King combines classic pre-war style features and desirable modern touches to create a truly historical banjo. The Artist Deluxe also has a bound ebony fretboard, American Standard thread hardware, 20-hole tone ring and a 3-ply rim. Designed by Greg Rich, this banjo recalls the most supremely crafted Recording Kings from the golden age of musical instruments.
