Pre-owned Samick Royale RL-3 in Transparent Red. The pickups have been upgraded to custom wound Manlius pickups with dual coil tap functionality. The guitar is in good condition. The back shows some light buckle rash, and the top does show wear in the form from minor indentations and pick scratches. There are two screws in the place where a pickguard would be, but no pick guard is included. Hardshell case is included.
The ROYALE™ addresses the performance shortcomings of this great design. The sides and the center block are made from one piece of wood, rather than two sides and the center block. This creates a more rigid structure to mount the neck, top, and back into. The result is uncommon attack and sustain, without sacrificing the rich, full tone. It’s more like a solid body with incredible tone and warmth or fullness.
The compact size reduces the tendency to resonate and steal energy from the string. Duncan Designed™ pickups insure a professional balance of tone, clarity, and power.
