Recording King RP1-16C

This is a classic parlor guitar body shape with the unusual addition of a cutaway for access to upper frets. It is a great fingerstyle guitar, as smaller acoustic cavities tend to have a quick and present response. It is a beautifully made, very handsome guitar, with complementary select tonewoods working together to make a guitar with a sharp playing response, warm and engaging tone and excellent playability. The top blends beautifully with the back and sides, and the purfling and binding in turn add just the right accent. This instrument is an ideal house pet, making the room come alive with colorful sound, rich and complex in timbre, and plenty loud enough for singalongs.

If you are unfamiliar with the torrefaction process, it behooves you to read a bit from Recording King's website on what it is and what it does for tonewoods. "Torrefaction is a specialized heating process used on our Adirondack spruce tops in which the wood is heated at a low temparature in an oxygen-free environment. This curing process reduces impurities in the wood and results in weight reduction and increased stiffness, producing a similar chemical transformation as wood that has been dried for decades. The end result is a lightweight, resonant top that produces similar tone to a vintage instrument that has been played for decades."
