New TKL hard shell case included
This guitar closely matches both the Regal/Wulschner standard size guitar a friend of mine has, and the model 104 described on pages 125-129 of the book Regal Musical Instruments 1895-1955 by Bob Carlin. The guitar listed here does not have any labels. Text in the book states that MOP/MOT decorations varied from year to year. Some guitars had a star on the peg head as does this one. I believe the catalog entries for these guitars miss-represent the fret board wood. This guitar and my friends guitar had dyed Walnut fret boards. We replaced that on this guitar with good quality solid ebony.
Tone quality is very nice. This sounds as good as any vintage Martin 0- sized you will find. For one thing, modern bracing makes a huge difference.
