Used Recording King RU-998 Metal Body Resonator Ukulele w/Case


Made from an entirely European bell brass body and featuring a 6" hand-spun European Recording King cone, this resonator ukulele adds a unique twist to the classic Hawaiian instrument. The Resonator Ukulele features a mahogany neck, padauk fretboard, Champion-style friction tuners, pearloid headstock overlay and a bell brass coverplate. The RU-998 has fantastic projection and a bark that is uncommon yet very appealing for a ukulele, much like its bigger brother the resonator guitar.

This particular resonator uke is in pretty good shape. There's some light scratching on body in the "strumming area" immediately below the fretboard, but other than that, the instrument is as clean as a metal body resonator can possibly be! The action is low and the ukulele sounds great! Perfect for Old Time Music, Traditional Jazz, and vaudevillian fun! Weighs 2 lb 7 oz and included a padded case.

  • Nickel-Plated Bell Brass Body

  • Mahogany Neck

  • Diamond Cover Plate
