Product Description

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.

This superb copy of a 1947 Hermann Hauser I guitar has all the distinctive features of the great German master’s guitars. Indeed, this guitar has a marvelous German spruce soundboard as well as gorgeous Indian rosewood back and sides. Moreover, the very distinctive ornament on the bridge is immediately recognizable and gives this guitar a very characteristic look. The tuners are also particularly interesting, being original specimens made by Reischl, similar to those used by Hermann Hauser I. Although the Reischl tuners are almost 50 years old, they had not been fitted on guitar or used and are practically new. Finally, the rosette made of very dark marquetry with green purfling is once again a very beautiful facsimile of the original. The condition of this guitar is excellent, with only a few superficial playing marks on the soundboard.

There is a fascinating subtlety in the sound of this guitar. This instrument has perfect balance and intonation. It’s impressive to hear the accuracy and length of the notes, all along the fingerboard and up to the highest positions. The high notes generate a lot of nice sympathetic resonances, giving a unique personality and presence to this guitar. The volume of the sound is all the more impressive as this guitar can be played effortlessly. Precision and clarity of every single note, as well as softness and richness of tone, will inspire any true lover of the traditional classical guitar.
