So I posted this over at MLP, but got no response. I'm assuming most people have never seen one of these before. The guitar I want to know about was made in Toronto; it was made some time before 1928 as far as I can tell by the R.S. Williams Piano Company. There are no other indications as to who made this other than the soundhole stamp. I dropped a video camera inside the body yesterday to search for any clues about who made this and when - the soundhole stamp is the only thing anywhere inside the body that gives anything away. EDIT: After more research, it turns out this guitar could have been made anywhere between 1890 and 1928. Since 1928 was the last year the business was named "R.S. Williams & Sons Co., Toronto", it had to have been produced before then. I figured it was made in the 1920s but apparently it might be much older than that. Possibly made by a Luthier named Arthur Hensel, although this doesn't look like his usual work (and this guitar is from an earlier time than most of his guitars that remain around). If anyone knows more about these guitars please let me know! These normally go for around $500, depending on condition and rareness (however this guitar looks to be a lot nicer and more well made than most, and also more rare as far as I can tell). You won't find much on these guitars on the internet - hence why I'm asking here if anyone knows about these. I've been looking for days and not found a single guitar that looks remotely like this (it actually looks a lot like an early 1920s Washburn, but this one was made in Toronto by the R.S. Williams Piano Company, not made in the US). I know that the company had at least two known Luthiers working for them, so it's possible it was made by someone else (this doesn't look like a Hensel Guitar, and the other guitar maker there made resonators mostly; they had 250 employees so they likely had three guitar builders there or more). It's in need of a neck reset unfortunately, can't be avoided - it has no truss rod, and the neck has obviously moved over the past 100 years since this was made. I'll be fixing up the saddle as well, and maybe the nut (depending how it plays after the action is fixed). The tuners don't function well so I'll be cleaning them up, and I'll replace them if I can't get them to tune well (although I'd prefer to keep it all original if I can). There's also a small crack in the soundboard that needs to be stabilized. Anyways...onto the guitar! It's solid mahogany (back and sides, as well as the neck), probably honduran. The bridge and fretboard are ebony, and it has mother of pearl inlays. The headplate is brazillian.
