Intro
Extracts from what the makers say about this model in the "Overview" on the Saga Music current website......

"Regal Studio Resophonic Guitars are the last word in quality, affordability and VALUE! Our RD-30 models have a new interior construction that substitutes 4 sound posts for the traditional soundwell. These beauties offer the finest possible sound at an entry-level price! A beautiful natural mahogany finish is available, as well as a tasteful vintage sunburst. All metal parts are heavily nickel-plated, and our DP-26 lightweight aluminum spider bridge adds a new tonal dimension as well as maximum tone and sustain. Both regular Spanish and Square neck models are available."

The name Regal has been associated with Resonator Guitars since the 1920s. Saga, bringers of the celebrated Blueridge and Gitane guitars, have applied the same dedication to quality to this range of Resonator Guitars, now available in the UK." UK new SRP - £379.00.
Condition
Generally excellent condition, the guitar has had no playing use at all. Very minor finish marks in limited areas, which I hope to be able to cut-back & improve before sale, but nothing at all detrimental.
Action, strings & cases
I have adjusted the Maple saddles, and the set-up generally to give a medium action, around 2.5mm./3mm. at the 12th. fret. with just a little more string height than the usual minimal at the 1st. fret, in order to aid Bottleneck play

Newly re-string with Newtone Michael Messer National 13-56 light gauge resonator strings.

There is no case with the guitar, but I may have available a Hiscox Liteflite case, which if I have one which fits, would be available available at a modest additional price.
