This 1938 Recording King Carson Robison “Model K” began life as a Hawaiian guitar, but was converted for “Spanish” style playing. The guitar also received an X brace conversion that was done by Steve Chipman of Vintage Parlor Guitars, which included replacing the bridge plate with a much improved maple plate, adding an adjustable truss rod and replacing the fingerboard, a neck reset, as well as some various crack repairs. The guitar definitely shows the signs of an instrument that was played heavily in its day; there are various dings, scratches, and pick marks throughout, as well as evidence of an old tailpiece that was added and then removed from the guitar. There are several repaired cracks in the top and back that are all structurally stable. The neck profile is a chunky “V” with a wide 1.89” nut width. Demo video coming soon! Comes in a Reunion Blues gig bag.
