HAYWARD, CA— Recording King's updated our Slope Shoulder guitars with an extended scale length and vintage styling.
We’ve  taken everything great about our slope shoulder guitars and added a  bunch of new features that will please both modern players and vintage enthusiasts. Following the early  mid-century “Jumbo” to “advanced Jumbo” change, we’ve extended our scale  length to the full dreadnought scale of 25.4” for a little more punch  and projection. The classic body shape still delivers the sweetness and ideal tonal blend characteristic to slope shoulder  guitars, but the longer scale gives it just a touch more volume to help  cut through the mix. The 1-11/16” bone nut is perfectly comfortable for  strumming, fingerstyle or flatpicking, and combined with the bone saddle, helps to give these guitars an additional degree  of brightness and clarity.
To celebrate the sonic upgrades, we’ve made some changes in the detailing too, with ivory body and fretboard binding, pearl fretboard dots, vintage-inspired Golden Age tuners and the classic Recording King headstock logo inlay.
Our  slope shoulder guitars are available in two different models to fit the  needs of any player. The RAJ-126 has a solid AA grade Sitka spruce top and solid African Mahogany back and  sides. It’s finished in vintage sunburst with a classic firestripe  pickguard, and ivory Golden Age tuning machines.
The RAJ-116 has the same AA grade Sitka top with Mahogany back and sides. It’s finished in natural, with the same firestripe pickguard but with vintage-style Grover tuners.
The  Recording King Slope Shoulder guitars start at a MAP of $499.99 with  solid Sitka top and Mahogany back and sides, and come with Recording King's industry-leading lifetime warranty.
