I e-mailed this to Gregg before I joined up here but it may have got eaten in a SPAM filter so I'll post this here - hope this is the right etiquette. I think I may have come across a harp guitar maker that I can't see in the Makers Encyclopedia or find by searching the site. I frequent a luthiers forum and someone posted a picture of an old parlour type guitar. I'm fascinated with these instruments and asked him for more detail. The label in it reads:
"Josef Obrecht Instrumentenerzueger Weien, XV. MarzstraBe 31" - a Viennese builder. I did some quick googling and it turned up these links from the sale of a Harp guitar by the same maker:
 
 
Plus from the same site a search with the same label details as the parlour but for a different instrument (possibly) than the harp guitar:
 
 
Is this a builder you are all aware of?

Thanks David.  Another new one, which I will add to the Encyclopedia shortly.  As is another maker on that list.  It is difficult to capture all these new discoveries, as so many change hands privately.  Can't do it without folks like you!
