Gibson OJ and Recording King

Nice demo. I thought both guitars sounded very good. Very impressed with the Recording King (beside RC producing some very good and affordable guitars, there's something special about 12 fret guitars, too), though I preferred the way the OJ emphasized the bass and mids. Loved your playing.

Thanks alot for you video....It's funny that I'm looking very close at a Gibson J-45tv, J-35 Special and Recording King 12 fret 000 in either Rosewood or Mahogany

 

I'd like to get both but I'm waiting a few months because my wife and I are relocating and both changing jobs

 

Any way very good playing and beautiful guitars

definately. The OJ is stronger all around....has way more headroom. I can hit it harder and it will give more. With medium strings (it has lights now0 it becomes somewhat of a different animal but that is not a fair comparison. With a medium attack the recording king sounds darn good. It is more mellow and has a little rounder sound...but ha less headroom. It is EXACTLY what a sitka hog 000 should be. My OJ is my favorite slope of all time partially becasue of the comfort of the slightly wider neck. I probably played the RK better becasue I had been playing that right before this test and the 1 13.16 neck and spaceing of 12 frets makes mistakes easier to cover up or it is mus "roomier". If I play the OJ for a while, I adapt and then play it just as well and maybe even a little easier. Going form one to the other can be tricky.
