Pre-war Regal 0-size 12-fret in ladder braced spruce/birch with 1 3/4” and K & K pickup installed. Easy playing with full sound and nice projection.


This old Regal was an orphan without a home and deserved a much better life than sitting in the corner alone and unplayed. Prior upgrades, including the K&K pickup, were a good start but a complete refresh brought this parlor guitar back to life. An adjustable truss, new radius’d fretboard and frets along with a low-action setup resulted in an easy playing, full sounding and fine looking vintage parlor.

SPECS: 0-size body, 12-fret neck with paddle headstock, ladder-braced solid spruce top, birch sides and back in red mahogany finish, poplar neck with adjustable truss rod, vintage Kluson tuning machines with new black buttons, Soft V neck profile, new radius’d rosewood fretboard with new medium frets, pyramid bridge with compensated saddle slot, MOP inlays, bone nut/saddle and ebony pins. Nut width: 1 3/4”, String Spacing: 2 3/16”, Scale length: 24”, Upper bout: 10”, Lower Bout: 13 1/4”, Body length: 17 3/4”, Widest body depth: 3 1/2”, Overall length: 36 1/4”, Neck thickness at 1st fret: 7/8“, Neck thickness at 5th fret: 15/16”, Action: 3/32”, string gauge setup: D’addario EJ26 custom light gauge in standard tuning.

CONDITION: Solid rebuilt condition with upgraded neck assembly to accommodate modern steel strings including neckset with added truss rod. Flared fretboard sides to maximize string spacing. Visible fretboard extension falloff from neckset. Other work included new bridge, radius’d fretboard/stainless frets, as found finish retained, setup. Please note that vintage, repurposed materials will have underlying swirls, scrapes, scratches, bumps and bruises. Any new features added during the rebuild were made to fit in with the old.
