A hallmark of American design is at your fingertips.

The ROS-626 12th Fret 000 is a perfect example of the careful craftsmanship that goes into Recording King Century Studio Series gutiars. With all-solid African mahogany back and sides, the guitar's tone is warm and even. A hand-rubbed nitrocellulose lacquer finish ensures tthat the sound of the wood to resonate clearly and powerfully.

The classic 1920's design of the 12th Fret 000 is the link between classical guitars and the modern steel string. Very light in weight, but carefully braced for tonal warmth, the 12th fret 000 has earned a well-deserved spot in the pantheon of great-sounding guitar shapes. The combination of the 12th fret neck joint and the resultingly altered bridge *location*, creates a richer, mellower sound than many of today's brighter-sounding body shapes. Matching the rich tone and clear string separation typical of a classical guitar, with the projection of a traditional steel string, the 12th fret shape gives players the best of both worlds.
