~1936 National Regal Regal DOBRO Model 6

Regal went on to produce wood-bodied resonators under its own name, as well as for catalog and music store sales. Mark Makin, in his new book on resonator guitars, reports that this guitar is likely such an...

~1935 Dobro Gretsch Regal Model 19

With the Great Depression in full swing by the mid-1930s, National/Dobro began to license Regal, in Chicago, to create wood bodies which fit the resonator system.

~1935 National - DOBRO M-16 Fiddle Edge

It’s well established that metal body DOBRO resonators were made by DOBRO in Los Angeles California and Regal in Chicago Illinois only between 1935 and 1940, that’s it and they were all fiddle edge. This example is the sought after German Silver on brass with the segmented F holes and the oh so cool tasteful engraving. And like all metal DOBROs of this era it has the 14 fret neck with a bound...

1932 Dobro model 36 ?

This 1932 beauty was converted from round neck to square-style playing...what a sound...a real blue grasser's dream and what a piece of the "rock". There was also an attempt at making it electric look closely at the top ( at the lower bout) you can see the faint outline where controls possibly were... At any rate the price is right will consider trades...with easy conversion back to original...
