Regal Blue Label Soprano
For a nice Blue Label Regal.
So I have a nice black label Regal, I have a number of Regal made Ukuleles from this era that have been rebranded by others, (Tonk Bros, Wexler Wabash, B&S Michigan...). I had a nice looking Blue Label Regal but I had to give it away to the Ukulele Doctor, then I had another even nicer Blue Label Regal but unfortunately it met with an "accident" (sic). So now here I am inviting another; I hope it not going to be the Spinal Tap Drummer of Ukulele Corner! This one is a nice late 30's or so, sunburst standard with no major issues; and hopefully once it gets here it will stay that way

It's Here

And I think it may be third time lucky. There are no issues that need sorting (apart from trimming the strings and I can do that) so I won't have to show it to the Ukulele Doctor and I am being extra, extra careful. The Decal is fine but the tuners are not original and it looks like the bridge has been reglued at some point  but I don't think ether of these detract from it. My largest concern is that the action looks very high, (as is often the case with Ukuleles of this vintage), and there is nothing really I can do about that. Still it will be good for finger picking and I did invite it largely for show. If I keep it cased when not in use it should last safely for another 80 years.
