The mini-dreadnaught from Recording King, is the best sounding, easy to play, small guitar we’ve been able to find for the price. It’s part of their EZ Tone series which feature a solid Engelmann spruce top and African mahogany back and sides and a thin poly finish. They age the wood in ovens for a rich tone you’d get from a guitar with age. The mini-dread is great for a younger player or a seasoned player who needs a little travel companion. This guitar is brand new for $249 and comes with a deluxe soft-case.
