Product Description

Hermann Hauser ® I as a German luthier, holds a leading position among luthiers worldwide. He took over the instrument workshop of his father while Josef Hauser ® was still managing the music publishing house. Hermann Hauser ® I specialised in making lutes and guitars but also remained true to the construction of zithers. In the context of the Guitaristic Movement in Bavaria, Hermann Hauser ® I built a large number of different guitars; in particular the Vienna models and the Munich models in all kinds of forms, but all in absolute perfection. The Terz, Prim and the very rare Quintbass guitars of Hermann Hauser ® I are of highest quality. Even today, the sound of those instruments is still unsurpassed. Based on his special virtuosity, Hermann Hauser ® I developed technical, patented innovations in the area of construction of the guitar’s tops and body-neck connections. The Spanish virtuosi Miguel Llobet and Andres Segovia became attentive to Hermann Hauser ® I’s art of making guitars at the beginning of the 20th century.

This unique seven-string guitar by Hermann Hauser ® I was built in 1924. The two-piece top is made of spruce wood and is framed by dark and light purflings which can also be found around the sound hole. The two-piece back and the ribs consist of strongly flamed maple. The head is connected with the neck by a German mortise joint. Neck and body are connected with each other by a Viennese neck-body connection and the fingerboard protrudes the sound hole. The guitar is in very good condition and has only a repaired crack below the bridge.
