Andries De Jager worked in the JMG workshop in WA during the 1950s after emigrating from Holland in 1952.
Following the closure of JMG, he made and sold classical guitars under his own name and was one of Australia’s first makers of concert classical guitars built to a standard that equalled the concert instruments being built elsewhere in the world.
He had a workshop which built other ‘student’ guitars and string instruments, as well as building other styles of guitar himself, such as this one https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/230277431255507/

This amazing instrument is a 1983 luthier built concert guitar (not one of the workshop or student guitars), cedar top with Indian rosewood back & sides.
I also think the tuners might be Landstorfer – they certainly feel excellent quality.
The Original case could be an early Presto case (WA case maker)
