Torrefaction is a specialized heating process used on Recording King Adirondack (Red) spruce tops in which the wood is heated at a low temperature in an oxygen-free environment. The curing process reduces impurities in the wood and results in weight reduction and increased stiffness, producing a similar chemical transformation as wood that has been dried for decades. The end result is a lightweight, extra resonant top that produces similar tone to a vintage instrument that’s been loved and played for years.

These solid torrefied Adirondack spruce tops provide the foundation for Recording King’s Torrefied Series 000. The tone of the torrefied top is impressive, and when paired with the mahogany back & sides results in guitars with extra punch, projection and warm, vintage-style tone everywhere on the fretboard.

Whether you’re a singer/songwriter or fingerpicker, the Recording King Torrefied Series guitars are the perfect way to achieve vintage tone in a new instrument.

We here at Tallman Instruments take the factory setup to the next level, by insuring you that this guitar is setup to it’s peak play-ability, and performance. String clearances are checked and set, fret board is cleaned and treated, and the whole guitar is polished to a beautiful gloss… this guitar is new, warranted, and ready for you to enjoy many hours of playing enjoyment.

A full price purchase insures you a complete package of the guitar, a hard shell case of your choice (the green lined Travelsonic, or the black lined Guardian case pictured), and continental US shipping. Contact us with any further questions.
