RD-318 All Solid Dreadnought, Aged Adirondack Top

  • Solid 30-year-old Adirondack Spruce Top

  • Solid Mahogany Back & Sides

  • Rosewood Fretboard

  • Herringbone Purfling, Classic Rosette


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 solid Adirondack spruce tops that we've been naturally aging for the past 30 years. Adirondack’s excellent projection, coupled with three decades of curing delivers a stiff, loud, lightweight top with powerful fundamental tone.

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

We finish the 318 with classy, low-key fretboard dots on the rosewood fretboard, and a vintage-style tortoise pickguard to protect the top. The 318’s classic rosette design and herringbone body purfling complete the traditional look.

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