Modeled after the original pre-war resonator guitars, Recording King resonators, like the RM-997-VG Swamp Dog Metal Body Resonator, Style-0, are some of the foremost metal-body guitars on the market. Thanks to traditional bell brass body construction, they deliver incredible projection and classic resonator tone. From professional artists to beginners, these resonators have made a huge impression on players looking for classic resonator tone and vintage inspiration.
