Circa 1920s Regal "Victoria"
Back & Sides:
Circa 1920s grand concert sized Victoria. Internal bracing and other features of this guitar such as the colorful back strip tell us it was likely made by Regal in Chicago. This guitar has excellent deep and rich tone with plenty of sustain and a wonderful ring. Rebuilt by vintage acoustic luthier Dan Lambert to realize its full potential while maintaining as much vintage originality as possible. The guitar's original top was severely warped and so Dan made a new sitka spruce top for it with a beautiful hand rubbed French polish finish. Original tuners. New frets, new bone nut and new bone saddle, new ebony bridge, new slightly radiused ebony fretboard, new carbon reinforcement rod in newly re-set neck for added stability, ladder bracing restored and and tuned for maximum tone. 14.5" lower bout/10.5" upper bout/8.5" waist. 4.0"deep at end block. Includes non-original used case.
