Regal / Parlour / 1930 / Sunburst / Guitar For Sale
Regal are probably the best known of the Chicago guitar builders of the 1930’s. From the lower end guitars with floating bridges and tailpieces – often incorporating stencil designs, right through to top of the range Brazilian Rosewood parlour guitars. This example is from Regal’s mid range, with fixed bridge, solid headstock, open back Kluson tuners, and beautiful dark sunburst. It’s constructed of all solid Birch with a Poplar neck, Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard, and ladder bracing. The tone is full, more open than a lot of these Chicago blues boxes, with great mids and strong trebles. It excels with the blues, but can handle flat picking and light strumming very well. The guitar is in very good condition for it’s age, the neck has a soft V profile, and very comfortable action. It comes in a non original hard case.
Glenns Guitars, UK
Welcome to Glenn's Guitars here on Vintage & Rare. After many years in the industry, and having been fortunate enough to have worked in Hanks and The Acoustic Centre - probably London's two foremost acoustic guitar shops - I decided to do my own thing.
I have a passion for used and vintage acoustic guitars; nearly new second hand guitars because they can represent a bargain compared to the price of a new guitar, older and vintage guitars because they tend to have more character and can often become an investment.
You will notice when viewing my stock list my taste in guitars, as I only sell guitars that I genuinely like - and there are certain brands noticeable by their absence. I am a huge fan of older Gibson, Martin and Guild acoustics, but also more boutique brands such as Lowden and Collings.
I will consider part exchange if it makes your desired guitar a little easier to afford. I also offer a guitar finding service, if there's something specific you're looking for.
If you are happy to buy over the internet, I will send you as many high resolution photos and as much information about the guitar you're interested in as I can. If you can get to me - I'm based in Enfield, only 30 minutes from London Liverpool Street Station - you can always make an appointment with me and come and try some of the guitars out first.
I accept payment by Paypal, bank transfer, cheque and of course cash.
