The luthier Hermann Hauser III (born 1958)

Hermann Hauser III consistently continues the philosophy of his great ancestors. “Build only a few instruments so that you can vouch for each one, and work only for a few, but satisfied artists” (Hermann Hauser I).
From 1974 Hermann Hauser III and his father built guitars independently of each other in the same workshop. Hermann Hauser III provided his instruments with his own numbering and signature. Andres Segovia attested the guitars of Hermann Hauser III indescribably beautiful sounds, and Pepe Romero describes his Hauser guitar simply as the classical guitar with the purest sound. The secret of the sound of a Hauser guitar lies not only in the technical processing. Just like his ancestors, Hermann Hauser III cultivates personal and friendly relationships with his guitarists. Depending on the artists’ wishes, he tunes his guitars to specific sound frequencies. Before constructing neck profiles and fingerboards and before the string length is determined, a thorough analysis of the artist’s needs and demands is made. It is of fundamental importance that Hermann Hauser III is engaged in studying historical instruments, especially the instruments of his ancestors. This results in top works of restoration of historical guitars and the new development of limited special editions. Hermann Hauser III has received the highest awards from professional associations for his work and the highest recognition from the international guitar scene. To build guitars of the highest perfection, he sets out to build: Sensitivity, especially for the guitarist’s playing technique, a feeling for forms, to give the instruments a musical aesthetic, craftsmanship, the correct processing of the living raw material wood, musicality, the recognition of the instruments’ sonority and above all: love for the profession.
Hermann Hauser III needs between 150 and 240 working hours to make a guitar. A maximum of 17 guitars per year can be produced in the Reisbach workshop.
The waiting period for a new instrument is about five years. Because only with a lot of time can an art guitar be created, as Andres Segovia wrote in the Hauser family guest book: “A friend for the rest of your life.”
