Recording King RD-T16 Dreadnought Guitar with Torrefied Top

Torrefaction is a curing process that 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, extra resonant top that produces similar tone to a vintage instrument that’s been loved and played for years.  The solid torrefied Adirondack spruce top provides the foundation for RK’s Torrefied Series Dreadnought. The tone of the torrefied top is impressive, and when paired with the mahogany back & sides results in guitars with extra punch, projection and warm, vintage-style tone everywhere on the fretboard.

Recording King RP1-16C Cutaway Guitar with Torrefied Top
RK used solid torrefied Adirondack spruce tops as the foundation for the RP1-16C, including a 12-fret single 0 cutaway with a dreadnought scale. Not only do these guitars benefit from the vintage tone of the torrefied top, but the dreadnought scale gives them additional punch and projection beyond what you’d expect from a traditional 0 guitar. The RP1-16C is the perfect instrument for fingerstyle players thanks to the cutaway and 1-3/4” nut, delivering even, vintage-style tone everywhere on the fretboard.

Santa Cruz D12 Guitar
Legendary artist and first call session ace, Norman Blake, has long appreciated the power and sensitivity of the original dreadnought design with 12 frets clear of the body. SCGC’s prototype D-12 Model was commissioned to showcase Norman’s playing style by adding clarity and sustain for an articulate response to the flat pick. Building a guitar with 12 frets clear of the body creates more air volume, which allows greater amplitude and sustain. The hand tuned X-bracing insures increased bass response, while the top voicing and 4-1/4 inch soundhole size combine to achieve great presence in all ranges. This eliminates the tendency of the traditional dreadnought towards boominess at the expense of midrange and treble. The controlled integrity of mahogany sides and back impart clarity and definition to the guitar’s complex acoustic presence. The D-12’s sheer volume, complexity and incredible sustain make it a truly inspiring stage partner.

Santa Cruz VS Guitar
In addition to the VA Model, the 1930s Advanced Jumbo, J-45 and the iconic early ’60s Epiphone Texan also lent their considerable retro cool to the origins of the Vintage Southerner model. Each one of these guitars was a favorite of several of SCGC’s veteran luthiers and so inspired this regal compliment to the SCGC VJ model. The must-have feature of the SCGC VS is the shorter, 24-3/4 inch scale length. It is so yielding to the touch that fretting and reach are a pleasure. The scale puts the bridge in the optimal position to produce the comforting, growling presence of an old blues recording. The VS will respond with considerably more refined quality than the oldies, while inspiring room to grow throughout your musical career. $4,355

Wechter Solid Body Electric Guitar

Delivers distinctive styling and upscale features. Mahogany neck, ebony ’board, and a mahogany body with a 3/4″ flamed maple cap.  Seymour Duncan pickups and Triple Shot mounting rings allow the two coils in each pickup to be run in series or parallel. Either coil of each pickup can also be switched off for single coil flavors, and there’s a mini-toggle that puts the two pickups out of phase. Separate Volume controls for the bridge and neck pickups.  The body cut and shallow neck shape are both very comfortable, and the high frets make bending easy, even with the low action.
