A beautiful instrument with vintage styling and an improved sound chamber.
At the top of the line of the Regal Studio Series Resophonic Guitars, the RD-40 Round Neck Resonator has been redesigned from the inside out making it one of the best values when it comes to truly vintage-inspired, professional featured, resophonic instruments. Using Regal's many years of experience in the development and construction of traditional American acoustic instruments, they discovered ways to improve upon the most legendary designs from the past without pricing them out of the reach of any level player. Only the finest materials are used to create these new designs that reminisce of the past, while still meeting the demands of today's modern players. The new body shape takes its cues from instruments of the past; while the real secret to the tone of these instruments lies within. It all starts with a combination of Regal exclusives, such as the Power Reflex Tone Chamber for added volume, the DP-126 die-cast spider for its bell-like response, and a US-made, hand-spun aluminum cone. All together work in perfect harmony to assure the maximum, most articulate tone that can be heard in any playing situation.

Comments about Regal RD-40 Round Neck Resonator Guitar:
An affordable resonater guitar with the traditional dobro style and tone. Sounds identical to the rich dobro sounds in certain Dire Straits tracks (Romeo And Juliet, Telegraph Road & The Mans Too Strong). On the other hand, i'm slightly concerned about the poor quality strings included; after one month of 3 losses of strings, I ended up replaceing all 6.
