A fine example by this well-known German builder, it was built in Munich while in his prime, before he moved to Toronto, Canada. John Williams played one of these guitars as a boy and early in his career from the same period and Segovia had one as well that he used for his daily practice. This particular guitar is very lightweight, and sounds and plays a bit like a Hauser II from this same period. It has a very charming sound, and would make an excellent recording instrument. Apart from a single hairline crack on the back, and the expected playing wear on an instrument of 50+ years, the guitar is in otherwise excellent condition.
