Coming Soon - Hermann Hauser III Maple
Here’s an update from David Collett on the New maple/spruce Hauser III that will be arriving any day now:
We have a maple and spruce Hermann Hauser III arriving very soon (before the end of the year), and I have some photos of the wood that Hermann and I chose for the guitar. The first pictures are of the raw wood, when selected back in 2008. Then you can see the guitar as I saw it during a visit to Reisbach in January of this year. The final photos were taken recently, upon completion of the guitar, and Hauser kindly forwarded these to us. Of course the criteria in choosing the woods must take into account both sonic properties as well as aesthetics, and Hauser’s wood supply provides ample opportunity for selecting something suitable every time. Interestingly, Hauser dates the label from the moment he starts a guitar, unlike most luthiers who date the guitar upon completion, so this new guitar will have a 2010 label. And the dog with me is Hauser’s dog “Yoshi”. (As always, click on the photos to enlarge them).
