For Sale: Recording King Maxwell resonator guitar, excellent condition, full mahogany top/back/sides for a nice warm sound, the Maxwell is the largest bodied wood resonator guitar of the RK line, which features a sandcast "spider" bridge, like that of a dobro. It has a bone nut, with an ebony-capped saddle, so with the warm tones of Mahogany, plus the very resonate sounds of an ebony saddle, almost reverb-type clarity, you get a very unique high clarity, yet warm sound. The Maxwell differs from most "dobro" guitar sounds due to the warmer mahogany woods, it's unique paralleogram cut sound well, but it is also set up for fingerstyle, or flatpick, with very low action, which gives you a very unique sound suitable for folk, blues, or alternative styles. The action is low, near that of an electric, it plays effortlessly. The sound is warm and smooth, with a very unique, almost reverberant clarity. Please listen to this example (second song): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tVII1u2BhJM&t=15s
This guitar has been slightly customized, it keeps it's beautiful "piano-black" lacquer finish, with front and back ivory binding, however the overly-gaudy chromed bling (cover/rings/tailpiece) has been removed and repainted a warm "clay" finish, which well-accents the piano-black finish perfectly, without the need to wear sunglasses when playing the guitar. I have also replaced stock machine tuners, with gold tuners with grained-ivoriod buttons. (stock tuners included). I also removed cheesy black plastic truss rod cover and replaced with mother of toiletseat (ivory) truss rod cover. (see photo) This guitar is currently setup with a set of 11-50 Pyramid phosphor-bronze round-cores, which adds to this great sounding one of a kind instrument. The price is firm.
