It is no surprise that this popular Regal consistently outclasses anything at three times the price. Our goal from the very beginning was to combine all of the ground breaking design features and legendary tonal characteristics of vintage originals, with modern construction techniques to make instruments that are priced within the reach of the working musician or any square-neck enthusiast. Features include all mahogany construction with a rosewood fingerboard finished in a translucent glossy black that still lets the actual color of the wood shine through, a genuine USA-made cone, an old-style sound-well with parallelogram openings, a scale length of 25", nickel-plated hardware, and the period correct California-style body and neck shape.

The Regal Story

Regal dobros have been favorites since the early 1930's. The first production took place in Chicago, and by 1937 Regal had taken over exclusive right as the manufacture of dobros. During the Second world War, production ceased as factories were converted to manufacture essential war time products. Regal dobros were reintroduced by Saga in 1987, and have regained a position of leadership in the world wide resophonic guitar market. With one foot firmly in the past, we are carrying the Regal tradition into the future. Improved finishing techniques now allow our instruments to look every bit as good a as they sound.
