Recording King RA-998 Metal Body Mandolin - PRE-LOVED: (Great Condition)
Recording King's RA-998-E Metal Body mandolin is a unique instrument. It's essentially a cross between a metal-bodied resonator and a mandolin. The result is a beautiful-looking instrument with a full sound. In the '20s and '30s it wasn't all that unusual to see a resonator mandolin but nowadays it's much rarer. Recording King has made this model based on a traditional design. On the back of the nickel-plated body they've added a wonderful Lilly of the Valley engraving that only adds to the beauty of this instrument.
