Remo top frosted head.
RK tuners with "pearloid" buttons
T brackets for resonator, I didn't want to drill holes for L-brackets in this new rim.

This is an older RK 25, I bought when they first came out. I believe the color is just a shade darker than the later ones.
This thing looks and sounds real nice. Nice Stanley-style archtop POP!
Shipped in older Recording King case, that needs the leather on the handle re-wrapped.
