1933 WORLDS FAIR REGAL CUSTOM PROTOTYPE. HAS SUPER FANCY DOUBLE CHECKERBOARD BINDING THAT IS FANTASTIC. HAS A LAMINATED NECK WITH SO MANY DIFFERENT KINDS OF WOOD YOU CANT COUNT THEM ALL 20 AT LEAST. ORIGINAL GREEN LINED CASE. THE BACK IS SO FLAMED OUT THE PHOTO'S DO NOT DO IT JUSTICE. THE GUITAR HAS BEEN PLAYED AND HAS VERY MINOR FRET WARE FOR ITS AGE. IT IS X BRACED YOU CAN FEEL THE BRACE IN THE F HOLE.THE ACTION IS PLAYABLE ABOUT 3/8TH OF AN INCH,BUT COULD USE A NECK RESET TO BE PERFECT. THERE IS A SMALL PIECE OF BINDING THAT NEEDS TO BE RE GLUED BACK TO THE TOP OF THE FRET BOARD. THE NECK IS PERFECTLY STRAIGHT. THE VOICE OF THIS ARCHTOP TRULY SOUNDS LIKE NO OTHER ARCHTOP I HAVE EVER PLAYED. IT SOUNDS LIKE A MARTIN. THE PICTURE INLAYS IN THE EBONY FRET BOARD ARE JUST BEAUTIFUL. THIS ENTIRE GUITAR IS JUST STUNNING TO LOOK AT IN PERSON. NO CRACKS OR REPAIRS OF ANY KIND AND ALL ORIGINAL. ONE ORIGINAL BRIDGE WHEEL IS IN THE CASE POCKET WITH THE ORIGINAL ROPE STRAP.THERE WERE 5 MADE FOR THE 1933 WORLDS FAIR. THERE IS ONLY 3 IN KNOWN EXISTENCE. ONE IS OWNED BY THE GUY WHO WROTE THE REGAL BOOK. I HAVE PHOTO'S OF HIS GUITAR AND IT IS ALMOST THE SAME AS MINE. I HAVE BEEN GIVEN THEM FROM A FRIEND WHO KNOWS HIM. TO GO WITH THE GUITAR FOR PROOF.THIS IS TRULY A PIECE OF WORLD HISTORY ONE OF 5 MADE PROTOTYPE 1933 WORLDS FAIR REGAL EXHIBIT. ONLY 2 OTHERS IN KNOW EXISTENCE. THIS GUITAR REALLY SHOULD BE IN THE SMITHSONIAN. IT PLAYS AND SOUNDS SO FULL I CANT PUT IT DOWN IT IS A FANTASTIC GUITAR. WHAT A GEM. ONE OF THE RAREST GUITARS EVER BUILT.
