Overview

Adding a must-have guitar to the Dirty 30's line, the Series 7 is an acoustic Single 0 with a sound that can't be believed for the cost. Chalk it up to Recording King's super clean Cross Lap bracing and top quality materials, the Series 7 packs a punch. The spruce top is striking beneath the Tobacco Sunburst finish, framed by vintage-style checkerboard binding.  The bound soundhole and Harmonella stencil fretboard markers are both functional and stylistic.

Both the Tobacco Sunburst and Matte Black models include bone nuts and saddles and ivory-button tuning machines. Whether headed out on the road or matching the vibe of an intimate session, the Series 7 is sure to be a go-to-guitar.

    Comments about Recording King RPS-7-FES-TS Dirty 30s Series 7 Single 0 Electric-Acoustic Guitar:

    I love love love this guitar! Keep in mind what it is. It is a recreation of a "catalog guitar" from the 30s. It has a very particular bluesy/rootsy sound. If you play this kind of music it will add an authenticity to your playing that a standard modern dreadnought cannot.

    Please do not knock this guitar for what it isn't, which is a modern dreadnought. When most people think of what an acoustic guitar should sound like they think of a modern dreadnought sound. While the modern dreadnought sound is a nice one with its deep bass and long sustain, it is by no means the ONLY sound an acoustic musician might want to use, especially for roots music. The short sustain and somewhat "chalky" tone of this Recording King instrument is part of its beauty and charm. It has an old-school sound but with modern construction and playability which is great. I love that companies like Recording King are bringing these sounds back, making them affordable, and adding discrete pickup systems to these instruments so we can not only record with them but also play out with them. Well done Recording King!

    Again, if you want a standard acoustic guitar sound please don't buy this guitar because it looks nice and then detract points because of its sound. Its sounds just like it should. A lot of great early blues, folk, and country music was made and recorded with catalog guitars like this one and we should be glad to have this color available to us again in a brand new instrument. If you really want to get an authentic 30s sound then throw a set of Monel or "Retro" guitar strings on there. The short decay of the basses will add an even more vintage sound and feel to your playing.

    I love the feel and sound of this parlor guitar

    Comments about Recording King RPS-7-FES-TS Dirty 30s Series 7 Single 0 Electric-Acoustic Guitar:

    I love the feel and sound that comes out of this parlor guitar. I think it is very comparable to the Gretsch Jim Dandy, which I also own. I'm a big fan of parlor guitars and would recommend this guitar. I haven't plugged it in yet so I'll refrain from commenting on that aspect of it right now. I also won't comment on the technical aspects of a guitar because I am not an expert....but the guitar feels right when I play it.
