Recording King RK-80 Professional Banjo

This Recording King RK-80 - "The Professional" Banjo (retail value NEW was $1,499) – is in excellent condition. The RK-80 is a beautiful, high quality instrument. It is easy to play and has tremendous tone and volume. It is a great Bluegrass banjo that has a nice warm sound and it is a sight to behold.

The guitar is in near new condition except for 2 scratches on the neck (shown in the photos below). One scratch is barely visible, and the other is visible - but it only runs through the finish and it is superficial.

I am including the following items (free – no charge) along with the banjo: 2 sets of GHS PF 150 strings (value $15), 1 set of Martin Vega Banjo strings (value $4.19), a Neotech Super banjo strap (value $21) and a Music Gear Deluxe Hardshell Banjo Case (value $50).

This banjo will be available until sold either here at this iste or at another site at which the instrument is being offered for sale. After sale - all active listings will be updated.


Combines pre-war and modern features to create the ultimate bluegrass banjo.

The Recording King RK-R80 Professional resonator banjo features a mahogany resonator, mahogany neck, bound ebony fretboard, American Standard thread hardware, 20-hole tone ring and a 3-ply rim. Designed by Greg Rich, this model recalls the most supremely crafted banjos from the Golden Age of musical instruments.

The Professional features the traditional Recording King floral peghead and inlay and an authentic Mastertone-style flange. With its exceptional tone and handcrafted perfection, this banjo will appeal to players as well as collectors.
