German luthier Stefan Nitschke has become known for building quality instruments in the Torres/Hauser tradition. This is his "Hauser" model, which he considers to be an "interpretation" of several Hauser I guitars he's seen, with the internal details based largely on the famous 1937 Hauser immortalized in the hands of the great Andres Segovia. The instrument is nicknamed "La Clareta" and as always from Stefan, exquisite materials have been selected including a very colorful set of CSA rosewood for the back and sides and a spruce top covered in bearclaw markings. His darker, amber colored finish gives the guitar more of an aged look (without the wear of course). Like the sound of Hauser, this guitar has a sturdy, dry and "woody" quality of tone with a strong fundamental to every note and controlled overtones. It has the "looseness" of an old guitar in its feel, and a wonderful, lyrical charm in the trebles. Overall a stunning instrument and we are very pleased to be working with this excellent maker.
