Recording King RA-998 Metal Resonator Mandolin

The Recording King Metal Body Mandolin is one of the only mandolin resonators available today and the instrument with the most similar characteristics of the pre-war originals. Choose from the nickel-plated bell brass finish, the nickel-plated bell brass finish, with "Lily-of-The-Valley" back engraving, or the champagne matte finish, while they last.

Champagne matte finish
