Description

This classical guitar takes as its inspiration (largely for structural details) the iconic 1937 Hauser I that was immortalized in the hands of Andres Segovia over several decades of concertizing and recording - the original is now on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. German's Hauser model is perhaps his best well-known, it has been recorded by both John Holmquist and Jason Vieaux for their five Naxos recordings, and won German First Place in the Concurso Nacional de Constructores y Ejecutantes de Guitarras in 2000. It is also constructed with his finest and most well-seasoned materials. It is noticeably apparent that maestro Rubio has entered a new era in his career here. A 25-year old German spruce soundboard dictates the sonic direction of this instrument. It has an unparalleled combination of note separation and clarity that will highlight the melody of the most demanding musical pieces. Its sonorous character and wide dynamic range lends itself to attain that much desired "everything goes silent" aspect. Bold, clear, balanced, this guitar records and concertizes beautifully. All of this coupled with a beautiful marriage of understated yet classic aesthetics make this a very special contribution to our high end line of guitars. We are very excited to offer this gorgeous guitar to our discerning clientele.

Background

German Vazquez Rubio (also known as G.V. Rubio) has been making guitars for over forty years and has developed his own signature sound that guitarists have come to love. He was born in 1952 in Paracho, Mexico where there is an abundance of fine luthiers (with few exceptions all of the finest guitars in Mexico come from Paracho). German's first formal training began at eleven years old when he left school to help support his seven siblings and work for his uncle Manuel Rubio at his workshop. There even at his young age he made a conscious effort to make guitar building his life's work. In 1968 at the age of sixteen he made his first concert level guitar (hence his label reads 'desde 1968"). German has since been able to learn from many different master builders such as Felix Manzanero, Jose Romanillos and Thomas Humphrey. He now resides in Los Angeles, California where he builds a variety of both classical and flamenco models.
