This guitar takes as its inspiration (largely for structural details) the iconic 1937 Hauser I that was immortalized in the hands of Andres Segovia over several decades of concertizing and recording - the original is now on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. German's Hauser model is perhaps his best well-known, it has been recorded by both John Holmquist and Jason Vieaux for their five Naxos recordings, and won German First Place in the Concurso Nacional de Constructores y Ejecutantes de Guitarras in 2000. The sound quality, craftsmanship and playability of this guitar easily live up to its reputation with ease. Materials are first class including a gorgeous set of Cocobolo for the back and sides with a tasteful maple center strip. Bold, clear, balanced, this guitar records and concertizes beautifully. An absolutely stunning instrument all around from this very respected maker. Although a used guitar, it is in excellent condition with barely any signs of prior use.

German Vazquez Rubio (also known as G.V. Rubio) has been making guitars for over forty years and has developed his own signature sound that guitarists have come to love. He was born in 1952 in Paracho, Mexico where there is an abundance of fine luthiers (with few exceptions all of the finest guitars in Mexico come from Paracho). German's first formal training began at eleven years old when he left school to help support his seven siblings and work for his uncle Manuel Rubio at his workshop. There even at his young age he made a conscious effort to make guitar building his life's work. In 1968 at the age of sixteen he made his first concert level guitar (hence his label reads 'desde 1968"). German has since been able to learn from many different master builders such as Felix Manzanero, Jose Romanillos and Thomas Humphrey. He now resides in Los Angeles, California where he builds a variety of both classical and flamenco models.
