Recording King has teamed up with legendary bluegrass artist Sonny Osborne to create a new signature banjo model.
The Recording King Scout (RK-SCOUT) has custom features selected exclusively by the bluegrass icon.
This beautiful instrument features the classic Recording King peghead with Osborne's name and arrowhead design in M.O.P., as well as a patterned arrowhead fretboard inlay with Sonny Osborne's signature block in M.O.P. printed on the 12th fret.
The banjo also features a one-piece flamed maple resonator, one-piece figured maple neck, 20-hole tone ring, 3-ply maple rim, white binding, a white truss rod cover with "The Scout" printed in black, nickel-plated hardware, American standard thread hardware and a Mastertone-style flange.
"It has been my extreme pleasure to work with the people at Recording King to produce a midrange banjo which exceeds anything on the market, at an affordable price," said Osborne.
Sonny Osborne was a member of the influential bluegrass group The Osborne Brothers. Today, he is one of the most respected artists in the bluegrass community. He also produces his own line of banjos under the Chief line.
Recording King is a best-selling manufacturer of banjos, acoustic guitars and cowboy art guitars.
