Recording King RM-997-VG "Swamp Dog' Resonator Guitar

Swamp Dog Resonator, Style-0, Chicken Foot Coverplate
Bell Brass Body
European Recording King Handspun Resonator Cone
Distressed Vintage Green

Modeled after the original pre-war resonator guitars, Recording King resonators are some of the foremost metal body guitars on the market. Thanks to traditional bell brass body construction, they deliver incredible projection and classic resonator tone.

The Recording King RM-997-VG features a 9.5" hand-spun European Recording King cone, a mahogany neck and a hard maple bridge. The aged green patina finish is oxidized like it's been played on a swampy porch for years.

From professional artists to beginners, these resonators have made a huge impression on players looking for classic resonator tone and vintage inspiration.
