Workmanship and materials on this particular guitar are outstanding. It features old spruce for the soundboard, as well as elegantly figured, tight-grained and quarter-sawn African rosewood for the back and sides. The design is essentially the same since the Segovia-owned guitar of Hauser I in 1937. Although a second-hand guitar, this instrument is in like-new condition, yet still has a beautifully played-in and "loosened up" sound that lends a gorgeous glow to each note, which (in perfect Hauser style) is perfectly balanced across all registers with supreme definition/separation between voices. This is a beautiful example from one of the most recognized and respected workshops in classical guitar history.Orfeo article on Hauser III, Blochinger and Ober
