Regal Duolian Resonator Polychrome Guitar RC-1
The Duolian Resonator guitar was a favorite with blues legends such as Son House, Bukka White and Tampa Red when it first appeared in 1931. In the days before electric amplification blues musicians were looking for an instrument that could produce the volume they needed while still maintaining the tone they required. The Duolian was the answer. With it's sharp attack and rapid decay...so characteristic of the Duolian sound...instantly cut through the ambient clatter of the local honky tonk or the smokey clubs of the "South side of Chicago blues scene.

Mother-of-pearl dot position markers. Spun resonator cone with wooden biscuit bridge. Die-cast 15:1 ratio sealed tuning machined. Adjustable truss rod.
