Re: Barrington Guitars_Hensel

Hi, I own a parlor guitar that I believe was made by Arthur Hensel. On the headstock is the logo of the RS Williams Company, and the name Hamilton. Has anyone run across one of these?

: : Hello,
: : I also qwn a very old guitar"HandMade by Arthur Hensel, but for the R.S.Williams and Son Ltd. He apparently made guitars for larger dept. stores in the early pre and post 2nd W.W.. Mine was originally a laptop Hawaiian style but plays credibly in the first position thiugh the intonation goes off rapidly as you move up the fretboard. Mine was in a flood in the '50's up here in Canada and was in rough shap with a crack in the back and had a destroyed bridge with no front perfling left. I had the basic giutar rebuilt to the finishing stage and, as some previous owner had tried to remove the front Hawaiian painting with sandpaper ACROSS the bloddy grain the top looks a bit shabby, but clean now, and i took the laquer off by shaving till i got to the wood on the sides and bacl which revealed lovely bird'seye maple, which wan then polished down with fine steel wool and then polished with gunstock oil which has mad a very nice, non yellowing clear shiny finish....worth moer than I could get for it as well I fear....LOL
