Luise Walker was born on 9th September 1910 and was a world famous guitarist. She began her studies under Josef Zuth and later under Jakob Ortner at the University of Music Vienna. In 1940 she became professor at the University of Music Vienna, where she, as well as Karl Scheit taught their own classes. Luise Walker was awarded the Golden Honorary Medal for Arts and Sciences, the Golden Medal of Honour for Services to the Republic of Austria and the Honorary Medal of the capital city of Vienna. This rare Hermann Hauser I guitar comes from the collection of Luise Walker. Due to its manifoldness, this instrument can be used as a solo instrument or in chamber music. The two-piece top is made of spruce wood and is framed by dark and light purflings, just like the sound hole as well. The two-piece back as well as the two-piece ribs are made of strongly flamed maple. The head is connected with the neck by a German neck spine. The neck is screwed to the body and can be adjusted individually. The fingerboard has a zero fret and protrudes the sound hole.
