Description

This instrument is a supreme example of the mature "teutonic" Hauser I style at its zenith. It has the classic curves, compact (yet sturdy) build, and aesthetic features that make this one of the most iconic (and copied) models in the history of the craft - this is a full-sized guitar, nearly identical to Segovia's 1937 Hauser in terms of measurements and internal structural details. Not surprisingly, it also has the unmistakeable 'archetypal' Hauser I sound that has mesmerized audiences for nearly a century in the hands of players such as Miguel Llobet, Andres Segovia, Julian Bream, and countless others. The tone can be described as having virtually everything one could ask for on a wish-list of sonic qualities - a piano-like clarity in all registers, precise balance and a vast color palette (bright and brassy when played ponticello, milky and luminous when played sul tasto, and everything imaginable in-between). Every note has a clearly defined and "anchored" fundamental at its core with very controlled and transparent overtones coating each note. For fear of overstating just how refined and beautiful the sound of this instrument is, in over 30 years of being in business we have seen only a handful of other "teutonic" style Hauser I instruments of this caliber. This is truly an exceptional and rare example of this makers best work. As if this wasn't enough - the guitar is in fantastic condition - it has no cracks or repairs of any kind, and only has a modest amount of minor, superficial playing wear including a small, nearly invisible ding behind the bridge. For those in search of the ultimate Hauser I, this has it all - the elegant and classic Hauser design, superb feel and playability, and most importantly - incredible nuance and subtlety of sound.
