At one time Regal were one of the largest musical instrument manufacturers in the US, with the company being synonymous with the swathe of catalog and house branded instruments available under one name or another during the pre and post war period in the '30s and '40s. Originally building wood body resonators under license from the National-Dobro company, Regal would go on to have sole manufacturing control of wood bodied resonators from 1936 until production ceased in 1941.
This 1939 Regal 'F' Hole Model 6 is a great example of a late 1930's Regal built wood body resonator, with the model being one of the companies more affordable student instruments at the time. These instruments are actually fairly rare, having been produced for only 1 year. This single cone resonator features a bound Birch body with a tobacco sunburst faux-flamed top, and round neck design. The 8" National style single cone design has a warm and responsive output with plenty of volume, and is perfect for slide blues and bluegrass playing.
As with all our instruments, this guitar has been given a full service and appraisal by our luthiers at the Vintage Instrument Workshop, and includes a 3 year warranty.
