1932-34 Dobro with Tricone Resonator
Patent # 1896484 by John Dopyera, in the 1929. The Dopyera brothers partnered with National Guitars in 1932.

National-Dopyera Guitar Company contracted with Regal and other manufacturers in the early 30s right through 1934 when Dopyera re-organized to form Valco. This instrument shows some appointments consistent with a Regal headstock. The Dobro decal is worn off or was removed. The instrument was owned and played by a Blues guitarist out of Sarasota, Florida until his death in the late 1990s.

I have owned it since then. The instrument retains all original parts and finish, but for the decal. Top, back, sides and neck are mahogany. Significant finish checking with a few scratches on back.

Play wear is noticeable on the neck and fretboard. Carter's Vintage Instruments performed the setup and can authenticate originality. Comes with a hardshell case. The item "1932-34 Dobro with Tricone Resonator" is in sale since Friday, August 2, 2019.

This item is in the category "Musical Instruments & Gear\Guitars & Basses\Resonators". The seller is "batchofhens" and is located in Blowing Rock, North Carolina. This item can be shipped worldwide.
