Regal RD-40V Roundneck Reso Guitar Cherry Sunburst with Case

Item: SIRD40CH

In the mid-1920s, guitarist George Beauchamp became frustrated that his instrument was difficult to hear amid the loud horns of a dance orchestra. So he conceived of a built-in "ampliphonic system," which he took to John Dopyera, known for his sonic improvements to the banjo. The Dobro was then invented under the National name. Later, Dopyera branched off with his own company called Dobro. Under license from Beauchamp and Dopyera, the Regal company of Chicago manufactured Dobro guitars from the mid-'30s until the early '40s. Today, Saga Music has revived the Regal name and redesigned the inside to include the exclusive "Power Reflex" sound chamber for increased volume and unsurpassed tone. The body shape is much like those Dobros made in California during the 1930's, and with the spun aluminum cone, produces a raft of creamy, mid and trebly overtones that will bring out the Delta in you.
