We do do not know the maker of this guitar. It is quite similar to Oahu squarenecks we have had in the past. It came to us with the back removed. We reglued the braces, reattached the back, and installed a new bridge and bone saddle. Since it was "no name" and since we made it the best it could be, we put our own Folkster label on it. It is a very sweet sounding guitar, and fine looking at that!
