Recording King RO-310
This is a previous Adirondack Mahogany orchestra model size, all solid woods. It is a 2017 model so wood is well aged. In mint condition with deluxe hardcase. I have owned the new RO-318 and this guitar was clearly better although the RO-318 was quite new and would be expected to improve with ageing. This has a 1-3/4" C neck rather then the 1-3/4" thin V of the RO-318.

Below is a review from a January 9, 2013 Premier Guitar article:

Recording King’s new Adirondack-spruce-and-mahogany RO-310 is almost a greatest-hits fusion of popular OM and 000 features.
Fingerstylists might be the type of guitarist most commonly associated with 000 and OM body styles, but countless players, producers, and engineers in just about every other style also consider the compact, full tones of an OM or 000 to be the ideal acoustic guitar sound. Country blues players love their concise tonality and playability. Rock producers and engineers love their harmonic balance. And folk players love how rich they can sound without dominating a vocal or ensemble blend. That adaptability has made the 000 one of the most enduring guitar designs in history.
Martin introduced the 000 in 1902, and it has followed a fascinating evolutionary path ever since—from 12 frets to 14, from a 1 11/16" nut to a 1 3/4", from mahogany to rosewood versions, and morphing into the now-legendary OM along the way.
Recording King’s new Adirondack-spruce-and-mahogany RO-310 is almost a greatest-hits fusion of popular OM and 000 features: The spruce and mahogany are a tonewood recipe for the classic Martin 000-18, the 1 3/4" nut and 14-fret neck distinguished the first OM (popularly regarded as the Excalibur of fingerstyle guitars), and the Adirondack spruce top is, in the minds of many, the finest top wood ever. Recording King doesn’t squander the opportunity to deliver on the promise of this union of 000 and OM elements. Indeed, the RO-310 is a great guitar.
