Step Back in Time with This Bell Brass Resonator

The Nickel Style-0 Resonator from Recording King is a throwback metal resonator guitar with strong vintage stylings and a formidable voice to match. Metal resonators pre-date all forms of guitar amplification, with the most successful resonators subbing traditional wooden bodies for bell brass paired with a resonator cone. The Nickel Style-0 Resonator captures this vintage legacy and voice. Its bell brass body gives a significant bump in volume an alternate guitar voice that’s inseparably linked to Delta Blues and folk. Players love this guitar’s distinct raspy lo-fi voice; it’s a time capsule of tone that’s expressive for fingerpicking, slide guitar, and recording, and much more.

Built for comfort

This guitar is built for comfort with a number of upscale features that won't break the bank. A shapely Single 0 body ensures vintage articulation and playability that’s made for travel, gigs, or simply keeping it within reach and on display in your living space. Meanwhile, a comfortable Honduran mahogany neck and paduak fingerboard ensure great playability whether you’re plucking intricate dusty melodies or wailing on your Great Depression-era tune with a slide. This instrument also features a smooth “C” neck carve, which makes fretting feel natural and easy up and down the neck.

Superior biscuit cone tone

Despite its slim size, Recording King went to great lengths to ensure this resonator has stellar volume and projection. The Nickel Style-0 Resonator body is made from only the finest bell brass. This body yields distinct metallic tone that’s not only classic and rich, but also a little rough around the edges, just like it should be. Sound is further amplified by a handspun 9.5-inch European biscuit cone that outperforms mass-produced stamped cones in every way including tone, volume, sustain. A handspun cone is a worthy and, frankly, expected feature seeing as Recording King is one of the few resonator makers whose roots stretch far back into the 20th century. And at either end of this guitar, you’ll find premium hardware that leaves nothing to chance: there’s a bone nut, a hardwood ebony saddle, a rock maple bridge, and sturdy nickel tuners with an 18:1 ratio for reliable and smooth workhorse performance 24/7.

Recording King: retro refreshed

The landmark Recording King brand traces its origins back to 1930s building contracts with the retail titan Montgomery Ward. During the early days of radio and recorded music, affordable but well-crafted Recording King guitars, banjos, and resonators swept across the nation far and wide. Now revived, Recording King hearkens back to those early days of production-line American instruments built for pros and budding musicians alike. Nearly a century later, these retro models take their cues from vintage designs for results that look and sound like their 1930s counterparts.

Recording King Nickel Style-0 Resonator Acoustic Guitar Features:

• Nickel-plated bell brass top, back, and sides deliver incredible projection with classic resonator tone
• Slim Style-0 body makes for a highly portable and comfortable instrument
• Large 9.5-inch resonator cone is handspun to perfection
• Vintage design that used formative pre-WWII resonators for inspiration
