The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

Arthur Hansel

Arthur Hansel, originally Hensel, built guitars, violins and other instruments in the west end of Toronto from the 1930s into 1952.  For some years he was contracted to build for R S Williams Co. 

Arthur Hensel immigrated to Canada from Germany in the early 1930’s and by 1936 was listed in the Toronto Telephone directory as  ‘Arthur Hansel’.   This may have been a misprint or a reaction to then-current sentiments.  

Guitars built by Arthur Hansel are high quality, well built and can sound quite good.
