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 fascinating Vicente Arias model is a wonder of sweetness and elegance. When playing, deep and rooted basses provide a splendid shine to the bass lines, while offering pure and graceful melody phrases thanks to rich and mellow trebles. With its effortless playability and genuinely inspirational sound, this guitar is an absolute wonder of early 20th century Spanish guitar and a great homage to Vicente Arias.
