Recording King RK-Elite-75 (The Flying Eagle). Everywhere seems sold out of these. Anyone know of anywhere where I can buy one in the UK (ideally from somewhere that will fit spikes for the 5th string and set it up)?
Typically we had to get Recording Kings from Thomann or Moloney Music in Ireland. At least a few places like Andertons and Guitar Guitar do supply them now but stock is non existent. Same with some other banjo brands. All you can do is preorder. Thomann say 4-5 weeks but I'm not convinced. Andertons three months seems more realistic. As to setting up only Moloney Music offer that if they get them in stock so realistically you'll need to get someone else to do it. You've been given a link elsewhere for spike fitting.
