Ward (Regal) archtop
 
Just purchased this 1930s archtop and it will arrive this week. Built by Regal and marketed by Montgomery Ward, it is x-braced and has solid rosewood back and sides. 15 1/2" lower bout. Top may well be carved, we shall see. Anybody have any info on these?https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/202...6595aac96d.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/202...9761bb6abb.jpg

Top is carved spruce, sides are solid rosewood, back looks to be laminated rosewood, not sure. Featured in the 1935 Montgomery Ward catalog (third guitar on the right in the attached image).https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/202...324f0ec795.jpg
