Hoyer ( probably Rodebald ) . late prewar or early postwar.
Solid carved sprucetop and solid flamed maple sides and back. Bindings and purfling is made from Wood. Parallel braced. 5 piece neck with no trussrod. Tuners not original , but in same style as the original. Fretboard is new, since the old one was totally worn Down. Tailpiece not original.
The letters on the head are original and the same type as Rodebalfd Hoyer used, and along with the highriding neck I am almost 100 % sure that this is a highend Rodebald. Maybe from Schönbach, since the original tailpiece and tuners were Schönbach style.
The guitar sounds EXTREMELY good,- one of the best I have ever heard. Very even and dynamic and rich singing tone.
