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.

Hermann Hauser® I’s way to build guitars greatly evolved throughout the 1920s. Strongly influenced by Miguel Llobet’s Antonio de Torres and Andrés Segovia’s Manuel Ramirez/Santos Hernandez, he progressively let the traditional Bavarian Tierce-guitars, Viennese models, etc. aside in order to focus on the construction of Spanish guitars. Not only did he succeed to adapt his craft to this new concept, but he overtook his predecessors. Improving his instrument’s sound qualities and giving them a unique pure personality, he eventually built the guitar that would be played and recorded for more than 20 years by Andrés Segovia, who called the instrument “the greatest guitar of our epoch”.

During the research process of the origin of this instrument, some information arose during the communication with different independent sources that the guitar might have been played by Andres Segovia, Julian Bream, and Luise Walker at concerts.

This 1927 Hermann Hauser® I guitar holds a unique and personal history, having been specifically crafted for Adi Haug, a respected guitar teacher from Hamburg. Adding an individual dimension to the instrument’s celebrated lineage, this personal connection reinforces the guitar’s intrinsic value, both historically and musically.

Esteemed in the music circles of Hamburg, the guitar has made a profound impact on its local environment, likely influencing and inspiring a generation of guitarists under Haug’s tutelage. The instrument’s celebrated status in the city not only enhances its historical significance but also provides a vivid picture of its journey and influence over time.

The unmistakable “manu propria” handwriting on the label verifies that this amazing guitar was built by Hermann Hauser® I himself. Moreover, a signature of Hermann Hauser® I can be found under the soundboard. The shape of the headstock, explicitly harkening back to Andrés Segovia’s famous 1912 Manuel Ramirez, is a tribute to the past, with the sonority of the instrument reaffirming this lineage.
The guitar remains in a remarkably preserved condition, a testament to the superb quality and craftsmanship of Hauser®. Several expertly repaired cracks on the soundboard pay homage to the instrument’s journey through time, while adaptations to the modern guitar standard, including the removal of the original zero frets and the end pin on the tail block, present it as a symbiosis of traditional aesthetics and contemporary functionality. Moreover, the French polish of this guitar has been refreshed. Crafted from one-piece Madagascar rosewood at the back and Indian rosewood on the sides, this guitar’s exterior bears no structural damage, having defied the tests of time. It’s further enhanced by the original Landstorfer tuning machines that are not just ornamental additions but also perform flawlessly, maintaining the guitar’s harmonious voice.
Acoustically, the 1927 Hermann Hauser® I guitar is nothing short of awe-inspiring. Its refined and pure timbre exudes an inimitable aural charm that no modern replica could match. Bell-like trebles provide a vibrant, endless resonance underpinned by deep and responsive bass notes that create a balanced, harmonious soundscape. The aesthetic appeal of the instrument is further heightened by the intricate mother-of-pearl rosette, adding an additional layer of elegance to this historical masterpiece. The guitar rightfully commands a legendary status, standing tall as one of the most exceptional examples of Hermann Hauser® I’s craft and one of the greatest guitars ever made.
