The Regal RC-43 is a unique instrument that blends design characteristics from National-style instruments with Dobro-branded instruments popular throughout the 1930's. The elongated steel body shape is more reminiscent of Tricone style instruments and is the foundation of this Regal. Add to that f-shaped sound holes and a single 9 1/2-inch spun aluminum cone with biscuit bridge and this guitars is every bit as good as any prewar original. In every point of tone, finish and style, the RC-43 equals or exceeds their vintage counterparts, but with an affordable price, too! These Regals have the authentic tone and tremendous volume that will inspire any player or instrument collector!
