    I was SOOO tempted. But... I'd rather have done buy it now, and he didn't want to.
    Plus... I haven't cleared my habits with the new girlfriend... and I kind of want to keep this one!

    Well I hope someone is happy with their purchase, it went for around what I expected ($2000) 1600.

    I think it would of reached a bit more a couple of years ago but, I have noticed a lack of bidding on the high priced tenors.

    I think it looks a bit ugly & might well effect the selling price.

    Yep. Im yearning after a tenor. (I lurk around this thread alot) Just wonder about that neck. Impossible to know how good a job was done.

    Not without inspecting the guitar, I don't know much about the mahogany Regal but I don't think they are that common.
    Certainly looks like lovely wood, geared tuners as well so I assume it was a top model.

    I cant find much info about Regal all mahogany tenors?
    In the forth picture, the one of the sound hole, you can see an angled brace, I don't know if that is just a sound hole reinforcement, or part of a main cross brace?

    All I can say is I didn't, I was the next bid down -probably being too tight again.

    Hi Fox,

    No I didnt get it. I put in a bid early on intending to do some further bidding bidding towards end of the auction. I got held up with work and missed it. Such is life. It went for a good price even with neck reset considered.

    I think the mahogany ones were top spec with spruce being further down the line.

    I got a lot of info on them from antebellum instruments.

    I recall a spruce topped one was for sale some months back in France. That one didnt seem to have the warmth of the soundfiles of the hog topped one.

    The search continues.

    I did not bid because I have to many already, but of course I would not post a guitar on here if I was interested in bidding on it anyway
    I will give you a tip though.... set up your eBay settings to inform you if any 'four string guitars' come up!
    Most will be baritone ukuleles but I have had a few bargains including a Blueridge!

  22. The following members say thank you to fox for this post:

    And then there's this - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/112421391144

    I want a resonator, but I am just not sure about this. It might do the job, same scale length as my mandola.

    Nice neck, shame about the body! It might sound OK though....
