Henner Hagenlocher began building guitars in the workshop of luthier Michael Wichmann in Hamburg in 1990. His strong interest in Antonio de Torres’ and Hermann Hauser I’s guitars led him to the study and construction of copies of historical instrument. After this period in Hamburg, he studied Music-Technology at the Guildhall University in London, where he remained an extra year after his studies, before moving to Granada. It is in Calle Guadarrama 3 that he opened his first workshop in 1996.
This stunning guitar was built in 2018 and commemorates the 25th anniversary of the first “Henner Hagenlocher” guitars. It a particularly refined instrument with a three-lobes head as a tribute to Hauser and Torres, a delicate bear-claw spruce top and gorgeously figured Amazon rosewood back and sides and top-quality Rodgers tuners.
It is a warm and full sounding concert guitar. It really has the straight direct character of the spruce, with plenty of overtones and colours. The volume and sustain are impressive for a new instrument.
