Part of the Tonewood Reserve Series, the Recording King RD-318 evokes classic dreadnought style, sound and volume thanks to hand-selected tonewoods and vintage styling.

The foundation of the 318’s tone comes from select solid Adirondack spruce tops. Adirondack delivers a stiff, loud, lightweight top with powerful fundamental tone and excellent projection.

Combine the hand-picked Adirondack tops with select solid Mahogany back and sides, and you have the all-solid basics for guitars that have powered genres like bluegrass and country for decades.

Recording King finishes the 318 with classy, low-key fretboard dots on the rosewood fretboard, and a classic black pickguard to protect the top. The 318’s classic rosette design and tortoise binding complete the traditional look.

For players that need the power and volume that only a dreadnought can provide and still want the warmth and vibrance that comes with premium tonewoods, the RD-318 offers the best of both worlds at a fraction of the price of a vintage instrument.
