Torrefaction is a specialized process used on Recording King Adirondack spruce tops where the wood is heated at a low temperature in an oxygen-free environment.
This curing process reduces impurities in the wood and results in weight reduction and increased stiffness, producing a similar chemical transformation to wood that has been dried for decades.
The end result is a lightweight, extra-resonant top that produces similar tone to a vintage instrument that's been loved and played for years.
These solid torrefied Adirondack spruce tops are the foundation for Recording King's Torrefied Series dreadnought guitars. When paired with mahogany back & sides, the result is guitars with extra punch, projection and warm, vintage-style tone everywhere on the fretboard.
Whether you're a singer/songwriter or fingerpicker, the Recording King Torrefied Series guitars are the perfect way to achieve vintage tone in a new instrument.
