Regal Supertone Mandolin, ca. 1930 (used)

Regular price $ 648.00

Uncommon outline has been identified in other examples as by Regal, Chicago. Remnants of Supertone label inside, a brand of Sears Roebuck.

Thoroughly refurbished and upgraded with new ebony fretboard and binding, neck reset with wedge added under tongue and added brace above sound hole. New rosewood bridge and bone nut.

No structural issues. Original inset gears work well. Back has been lightly oversprayed and rubbed out to hold original finish together. Stain on back is apparently seep-through of glue from label and cannot be removed. Short top crack and back crack expertly repaired. Very healthy with excellent action.

Guaranteed 90 days by luthier-owner for structural integrity and playability. Cosmetically "as is," with period hard-shell case in good condition.

Shipping is $50 within the continental US.
