  • $700.00
    Unit price per 

The Regal RC-43 Triolian-style metal-body guitar has the sound, the feel and the look of that 80-year-old collectible you've been thinking of. With its steel body nickel-plated in an antique finish, you can hardly believe this is a new guitar. The spun aluminum resonator cone with wooden biscuit bridge provides the correct, historical sound along with immense volume and carrying power. The mahogany neck is slimmed down for modern tastes, while the slotted peghead with pearloid overlay is totally original. An adjustable truss rod is another modern improvement that makes the RC-43 the best of both worlds, the old and the new.
