Features of the "teutonic" style are the extreme clarity and balance between voices, even sustain in all registers, and of course incomparable beauty of tone. The sound of this style of instrument has been most famously immortalized by Julian Bream in countless recordings, as well as by numerous other major players. Workmanship and materials on this particular guitar are outstanding. It features a piece of very aged spruce that has darkened to the same patina as one might see on a Hauser I built in the 1930's. It's perfectly quarter sawn and the strong medullary rays give the top an almost 3D effect when tilted in the light. The high-grade CSA rosewood used for the back and sides is stunning with various hues of red and brown throughout. The design is essentially the same as Segovia's 1937 Hauser I instrument so this guitar has the same timeless characteristics that have mesmerized players and audiences for nearly a century. Condition is near-mint, almost "like-new" with no damage or repairs and almost no playing wear.Orfeo article on Hauser III, Blochinger and Ober
