    Anyone heard of a "REGAL" brand hollow body electric circa late 50's early to mid 60's? Who made them and where? It Kinda resembles a "Wildkat". Single rounded cutaway 1 P/U in neck Possition,bolt on neck,rosewood fret board with block inlays,black pickguard,tobacco burst,bound body and neck/peghead.Nice old guitar I want to buy but I need a price baseline to work with.Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

    Tonk Brothers had the Regal brand name...they also bought the Washburn brand name from Lyon and Healy in 1928 but let the Washburn name sit in limbo

    ...another company (Beckman/Fretted Instruments) came along and revived the Washburn name in the 1970s and the rest is a music manufacturing success story

    ...as far as I know, there is no Regal brand name guitars made now
