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.

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”.

This 1928 Llobet model is in very good condition. It has only three very well repaired and stable cracks on the top. The guitar is entirely original, it was not refinished and the original Landstorfer tuning machines are still perfectly working. Some signs of use can be seen on the back, where the guitar was in contact with the player’s body. Sound wise, this guitar is a cathedral. It has a unique tone and a sophisticated timbre, with a sustain that seems to be almost limitless. The crystal-clear trebles are harmonically rich and combine beautifully with the clean and inviting basses. This breath-taking instrument is a real gem.
