Hermann Hauser III has tirelessly built guitars that capture the sound and aesthetic of the "teutonic" style, as initially established by his grandfather, Hermann Hauser I and transmitted through his father, Hermann Hauser II. Although it is one of the most iconic (and copied) styles since its inception, it should be no surprise that the style has been most faithfully preserved by Hermann III - indeed he works in the same workshop as his father and grandfather, uses many of the same tools, and even uses woods that were acquired by both his paternal predecessors.
This is a fantastic Hauser III modeled on the famous 1937 Hauser I immortalized by Andres Segovia. It is in practically mint condition with no signs of prior use - condition is immaculate, we rarely see an instrument of this vintage in this condition. Due to both its age and the use of old materials when initially built, this instrument has a magical old-sounding, played-in tone and a very beautiful, dark patina in the soundboard. The clarity between voices is exceptional, and it boasts perfect balance across all registers. Workmanship and materials are outstanding. For the serious aficionado looking for a guitar with enormous collectibility, sound, playability and physical beauty, this instrument has it all.Orfeo article on Hauser III, Blochinger and Ober
