Recording King M-3 1939
Out of stock
A Gibson-made Recording King M-3 1939. This Recording King has been very tastefully converted to a Gibson ES-150 “Charlie Christian” Model.
Basically the M-3 is the same guitar as the Gibson L-50, but with F-holes in the Recording King style and a 5-piece neck without a truss rod.
The stamp in the body tells us that this Recording King was made in April 1939. This workhorse has a solid carved Spruce top and laminated Maple back and sides. The original bound tortoise pickguard is a real eye catcher on this guitar.
The Mahogany neck has a chunky neck profile with a Rosewood fingerboard. This Recording King is in remarkable condition. It has endured the years beautifully and is without cracks or damage.
The M-3 is equipped with a very stylish Pete Biltoft Charlie Christian pickup and bakelite knobs. Very similar to the Gibson ES-150.
This vintage Recording King is strung with .011 strings and the action is nice and low.
