Price: $800

Excellent condition original cardboard 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. This guitar 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 solid ebony.
