Description

This is an elegant and beautifully preserved instrument, built by Hermann Hauser II in 1971. It is based on the style of instrument preferred by the great Catalan guitarist Miguel Llobet (1878-1938) - primarily on his 1859 Torres, of which Hauser I and II modeled several of their instruments. Rather than being a strict copy, it does also exhibit features more commonly associated with Hauser designs including the famous "V joint" at the back of the head, and curved lower harmonic bar internally. The rosette borrows heavily from Manuel Ramirez and Santos Hernandez in its design. Soundwise however, this is pure Hauser - it boasts supreme clarity and piano-like balance across all registers. Although it is slightly more compact in body proportions, it has plenty of sound - enough to fill any concert hall. Overall and impressive and charming instrument, even by Hauser standards.
