Pristine New Recording King RP2 626 OO Acoustic Guitar. All solid woods with Englemann Spruce Top and Figured Mahogany back and sides.Ebony fretboard with wonderful binding on the body.All finished with a light coat of nitrocellulose.Plays wonderfully no string buzz at all. Great set up.Dead straight neck .Looks absolutely stunning and has a volume beyond expectation for its body size. Can't fault it at all.So, why am I selling.Well, I made a custom order with Project music for an Eastman guitar.I was told to expect delivery in March 2019. I couldn't wait that long to start my lessons so bought this in the interim.Lo and behold Eastman have sent my guitar early and I have two guitars delivered one after the other.This one has to go while it's new.(btw, I can prove this story with emails and receipts). To buy a budget guitar is always a risk if buying unseen but seriously, this one is brilliant ,superbly finished. You can view it on a no obligation basis.These retail at £685 but I paid less than that hence my sale price and I'm including a Warwick gig bag which is also unused. It's rare to find any guitar with all solid woods, ebony fingerboard and such a decent build.I did my homework before buying this one.Here's the official specs.

Recording King RP2-626, 00 Size Acoustic Guitar
Developed in collaboration with guitarist and historian Eric Schoenberg, the Recording King 00 guitars offer players the even frequency response, clarity and wider neck traditional to a classic small-body instrument.
The one-piece mahogany neck with a classic v-profile meets the body at the 12-fret with a hand cut dovetail joint, giving these guitars a true small body sound, warm and rich, but perfectly balanced. The solid AAA Engelmann spruce top and solid mahogany back and sides have been carefully selected and hand-assembled. With a 1-3/4” nut width, Grover tuners, ebony fretboard and ebony pyramid bridge, these 00 guitars are as well-appointed and unique as they are beautiful. Each guitar is sprayed with a thin coat of nitrocellulose lacquer and then hand-buffed for a finish that is extremely resonant and historically accurate.
