Looking for the Lost Luthiers

I've inherited a Spanish-style, hand-made classical, nylon 6 string guitar. I'm trying to figure out whether to sell or keep it; I love the thing, but I really want a Taylor T5 Custom, too! I'd get a lot more use outta the electric...
This thing has a label inside that says. "Another in the sporadic line of Tolliver guitars, constructed for T. Dunn By Bill Tolliver/D. Robinson 1975 Number 27"
So they made at least 27 guitars, then...vanished? I've found NOTHING online, absolutely bupkis, except a lot of references for a William Tolliver who is deceased, who is a very collectible African-American painter.
Can anyone give me any idea who Bill Tolliver and D. Robinson were? Did they give up building beautiful instruments, die of heroin overdoses, go to work for Kramer and build flying V's, join the Hare Krishnas? Anyone else have one of these guitars, or have clear memories of 1975? Ah, wait, nevermind that last one....seriously, though, people can respond to me here, or look for pix of the guitar at www.sammigarrett.com.
Thanks! :)

So, it's common knowledge my thighs are on the heavy side? I wish I could find this blinking video of me on the web...
