Carl Hermann Schäfer started making guitars in 1966. He did his apprenticeship under the guidance of master guitar maker Ernest Köröskeny and later studied under master guitar maker Dieter Hopf. After having worked in Hopf’s workshop from 1971 to 1994, he opened his own in Oberneisen and moved to Niederbrechen, Germany, five years later. Carl Hermann Schäfer has specialized in making the most wonderful replicas one could wish for. These instruments are not only well built, but they also offer the very authentic sound of master instruments of the past.
This great copy of a Santos Hernandez guitar from 1925 is in perfect condition and has an attractive vintage look. Equipped with a transparent golpeador, this model has not only a pleasant neck shape but also a fantastic response, making it a very nice, and faithful copy of the guitar made by the grand old master from Madrid. It has a clear sound character with deep, well Spanish basses and an impressive authenticity in its voice. In short, an exceptional copy, truly inspiring and pleasant to play.
