Hello, I recently acquired a funky old Regal Bassoguitar. It's in rough non original shape and needs some serious TLC, but I''m going to get it back to playable condition. Does anyone know if this originally had a soundpost or benefits from the addition of a soundpost? Does anyone have specs/photos/measurements on the original bridge? This one already has a replacement back, and some very questionable repairs, so I'm not looking for a historically accurate resto, but interested in making something that sounds good enough to gig with on special occasions. Any advice on strings, setup? My main bass is an old kay with gut on the D & G and Zyex on the low strings, so I have extras of those lying around, but wondering how much pressure the top on these things can take... bass setup seems to really be a magic combo of strings, bridge hieght/thickness and soundpost location, so wondering with this oddity if anyone has had any luck making a playable novelty out of one? I saw an old post that mentions one of these being on tour with Ben Harper... is there any youtube footage of that?
