Regal Rc-51 Tricone Resonator RC-51

Regal Rc-51 Tricone Resonator GuitarRegal Rc-51 Tricone Resonator Guitar
The Regal RC-51 Tricone Resonator Guitar has the richness and warmth of tone that’s dazzled audiences for 75 years. The body is bell-brass, heavily nickel-plated to a mirror finish, and fitted with a traditional sand-cast T-style spider for great sound. The fast mahogany neck has a rosewood fretboard, adjustable truss rod, 1-3/4-wide bone nut, high-quality sealed-gear Schaller tuners, and a striking art deco pearloid peghead overlay. The hardware is nickel-plated brass.In the 1920s the guitar was coming out of the parlor and into the concert hall. The technology of the early 1900s, driven by the phonograph and radio, was causing a musical revolution. Amplification was required, and the Dopyera brothers of southern California answered the call. Using 3 spun aluminum speaker cones, a mechanical amplification system was created that allowed the guitar to be heard in the back row of the auditorium. From the jazz bands of the ’20s, through the Hawaiian craze of the ’30s, from Chicago down to the Delta, the sound of the Tricone defined an era. Its warm, rich tone was the signature sound of blues legends such as Tampa Red, Bukka White, Peetie Wheatstraw, and Kansas Joe McCoy.Bell brass bodyTraditional sand-cast T-style spider for great soundSlim mahogany neck with adjustable truss rod1-3/4 wide bone nutNickel-plated brass hardwareSchaller ST6 tunersBeautiful iridescent peghead overlay

Gold Tone Gt-750 Gt-750

Gold Tone Gt-750 NaturalGold Tone Gt-750 Natural
Due to the enormous popularity of the original GT-500 (our SKU #H65736), the GT-750 Banjitar was designed for optimal volume and tone. After numerous tone ring experimentations, a unique 20-hole bell brass tone ring was chosen for its bell-like sound characteristics and chime-like sustain. The brass tone ring provides more acoustic volume and a more focused tone. Upgraded from the GT-500, the GT-750 features the bell brass flat top tone ring, curly maple resonator, and bound fingerboard and resonator. This model also features the Sliding Magnetic Pickup (SMP) with volume control which provides a great banjo-like tone through an amplifier. Final assembly and complete setup performed at the Gold Tone Factory in Florida.Only a few years ago, a 6-string banjo would have been considered a ‘cheater’ banjo for guitarists, but today it is well accepted as its own instrument and you will hear the 6-string banjo in many genres of popular music. The GT-750 will certainly be a welcoming addition to any guitarists’ arsenal.WoodsNeck: Hard Rock Canadian Maple with 2-Way Adjustable Truss RodResonator: Curly MapleFingerboard: Rosewood; RadiusedBridge: Maple w/ Ebony Cap; 5/8 RadiusedFinishing TouchesWood Finish: Natural GlossFingerboard Inlay: SnowflakeNeck Binding: CelluloidBody Binding:CelluloidParts & HardwareNut: BoneTuners: Guitar-Style; SealedTailpiece: 6-String Straightline TailpieceTone Ring: 20-Hole Bell Brass Tone RingStrings: EADGBE – .010, .013, .020, .032, .042, .052Rim: 5/8 MaplePlating: ChromeTension Hoop: Brass; NotchedArm Rest: Gold Tone EngravedElectronicsPickup: SMP Sliding Magnetic Pickup w/ Volume ControlOther Features & OptionsCase Options: HD15 Hardshell Case; HPB Heavily Padded Gigbag
