1920's Regal Mandolin
REPAIRED TO PLAY

I have seen Regal Resonator models but none like this
It appears to be an original open body, made for cone and spider
This one has Custom made cone and spider, with brass bridge/saddle
Its had numerous cracks and I repaired them and applied a simple tinted nitro finish.
This is not a collectible, I am trying for an affordable players instrument





Saddle will also have 16" radius

FINAL PICS


Plays well up and down, nice mellow tone, not too bright
Intonation is good up the neck



If someone wanted to experiment further they could,build or have someone build a common saddle for different tones.










Superior gig bag, could use a washing

Thanks for looking
Please inquire and share
