Product Description

This is the earliest known guitar with a seven-fan bracing based on a Spanish model made by Hermann Hauser I. It was a special production for a customer in 1920. Up until this point, it has been assumed that Hermann Hauser I built his first model with Spanish bracing in 1924 – the year in which Miguel Llobet and Andrés Segovia visited him in Munich. Due to the existence of this instrument, we can prove however that Hauser I had already dealt with Spanish guitar building, and had also started to structurally implement it before this famous meeting took place.
The head of this guitar has a Stauffer head silhouette, which is elegantly curved. This Stauffer motive can also be found here with this replica of a Stauffer model by Herman Hauser II.
The inboard tuners, made by Landsdorfer, provide comfortable tuning of the instrument. The big body has the measurements of a concert guitar similar to big Spanish concert models. The top is made of German Alpine Spruce, while the back and sides are made of maple. Another feature is the tailpiece. The guitar is in good condition for its age, and has only few repaired and stable cracks on the top. Only minor signs of playing are visible. A hard-shell case is included.
