He'd been riding the rails for the last few nights, the trees and farmhouse lights gliding by the open boxcar. A bull tried to catch him at the last train yard, but he made it on board, guitar and all. The train slowed, grinding to a stop right after the next encampment. He hopped off the boxcar and slung the guitar high on his back.
Approaching the fire he could hear the tired and happy voices - enough stew for everyone and the singing was just picking up steam. He tuned the guitar and added 6 strings and a voice to the choir. The weariness drifted out of his bones and a warm happiness set in... and just for a moment the world was perfect.
It's from this tradition that our "Dirty Thirties
" guitars are born - meant to sound great wherever the road takes you. With a solid top and old-style matte sunburst finish, these instruments meet at the perfect crossroads of classic sound, vintage style and exceptional value. Like the original Montgomery Ward mail order guitars in the first half of the century, the "Dirty Thirties" Series are the perfect companion for singer-songwriters, folk stylists or traveling troubadours.
Available in three historic shapes, the "Dirty Thirties Dreadnought", "OOO" and "Single O" all start with a solid Spruce top and rosewood fretboard, with bone nut and saddle. We've finished each guitar with classic extra-large fretboard dots, aged ivoroid body binding, satin sunburst finish, vintage-inspired tuning keys and historic Recording King
"Dirty Thirties" guitars pack excellent playability and historic vibe into an ultra-affordable package that makes vintage style accessible to even the most budget-conscious players.
The "Dirty Thirties" guitars have a street price of $199.99 and are covered by Recording King's industry-leading lifetime warranty even if you live in the Dust Bowl. They're the perfect guitar for your store wall, for a gift, or even for your own arsenal.
