Recording King RR-50 VS Roundneck
Joshua6273, 24.07.2014
This is simply a great guitar. Once I changed to my favorite strings, from light gauge to medium, it was hard to put down. I played it all day. There is nothing sloppy about the workmanship. The tone on this guitar rings forever. I've played it in slide tunings D, G, E, finger pick and flat pick. It just sings. A great guitar and very affordable. It's a great guitar for someone who, like me who has small hands and short fingers. For me, it's very comfortable to play.

Excellent Guitar

The original item was damaged in transit but Thomann responded very effectively and provided a repalcement very quickly. The guitar is excellent value for the price, well finished and with great tone. Highly recommended

Recording King RR-50vs Roundneck
AlexandreJ, 14.09.2012
Etant fan d'un certain Rory Gallagher et du jeu en slide, j'ai voulu tenté l'expérience "resonator".

J'avais ma petite idée sur ce que je voulais (malgré mon ignorance totale sur les guitares à résonateur), je le voulais en bois/métal, fidèle à l'esprit vintage et surtout à un prix correct.

En cherchant sur Thomann, je suis tombé sur cette marque : Recording King qui est pour information, créée par Gibson.

J'ai été séduit directement par le coté vintage de l'instrument mais également par son prix assez bas.

A noter que deux modèles sont proposés :

le modèle squareneck qui est réservé exclusivement au jeu en slide avec son manche plus épais et aux cordes plus éloignées du manche. La guitare est adaptée au jeu "couché", c'est à dire que la guitare est à plat, sur les genoux comme un lapsteel.

le modèle roundneck qui lui, est plus versatile, il permet un jeu aux doigts et au bottleneck, son manche est semblable à celui d'une folk. C'est sur celui-ci que mon choix c'est porté.

Au déballage, mes espérances sont confirmée. L'effet vintage est au rendez-vous, l'instrument respire la qualité, les finitions sont remarquables pour le prix. La guitare n'est pas très lourde, la prise en main est bonne, les frettes sont parfaites, aucune n'accroche aux doigts. On sent le respect de la finition chez Recording King. Pour ce qui est du jeu, le manche est confortable et permet un bon jeu en picking, pour le slide c'est la même chose. Le son est fidèle à ce que j'ai pu entendre, que ce soit sur you tube (démonstration d'instruments) ou sur des dvd ( Gallagher et autres bluesmen...)
Le son est métallique, bien typique.

Pour finir, je dirais que c'est un excellent rapport qualité/prix. Un plus pour la finition apportée à l'instrument. Le son ne vous décevra pas et vous ne serez pas déçu de cet instrument qui a atout majeur comparé à d'autres instrument, une âme.

UN LUJO CON UN PRECIO BRUTAL
Jose Manuel V., 01.04.2013
Sin duda es una de las mejores compras que he hecho en esta cruzada contra mi sindrome de adquisiscion de guitarras. Lo compré con el temor de que fuera un instrumento de mala calidad pero que para tocar de vez en cuando me sirviera de diversión, y nada mas lejos de la realidad.. es una pasada, tiene un sonido de graves impresionante y una resonancia casi perfecta!!! vibra un poquito la segunda cuerda pero no llama la atencion. estoy pensando electrificarla (aunque casi cuesta lo mismo que el instrumento) y hoy por hoy es el instrumento acústico que mas toco en casa
