    Im still looking for one of these Regal Jungle ukes. They seem to be rarer than I thought.

    Mahalo!

    I think that might technically be a "Richter", apparently some guy named Fred Richter bought a lot of Regals in the 40's and put designs on them and rebranded them as Richters.

    Hey Mike, I have a Richter, and some were painted, some were not. Richter also put out banjo ukes. I believe the Jungle uke was strictly a product of Regal. The jungle uke actually has fabric on the body of the uke, and it isn't a painted design!

    Gaspar, I hope you find one brother!

    Ahh, the Queen of the Jungle. I was chasing after her for a while, thinking that would be the way to get my wife to want to own a uke. About once a year I would see one crop up on ebay/musical inst/vintage but always landing too far past half a G. You might try an following agent there. I also thought about the leopard fluke, or but the natural flea and paint the spots yourself.

    Ryan is right. This was made by Regal in the 40's/50s. I think only a few were made. Thank you so much Ryan!

    Billy those Leopard Flukes are really beautiful! Im more into vintage ukes. This Jungle uke has been on my wishlist for quite some time now

    There's a fellow with a thread on UU now that paints better than Pablo Picasso. Maybe he can paint your Martin to looks like a Regal Jungle Uke.
