Hermann Hauser ® II was born in 1911 and from 1930 worked in the same workshop as his father Hermann Hauser ® I. He took over the management of the workshop in 1952 and ran the company until 1983. He is one of the most important violin makers of the 21st century. Julian Bream, one of the most popular guitarists of the last century, played a guitar built by Hermann Hauser ® II in 1957.
Hermann Hauser ® II is worldwide known for his classical guitars that were played by famous guitarists like Julian Bream and Andrés Segovia. But Hauser ® II has also built some very special guitars for his customers. This rare tierce Stauffer model is one of these special guitars. There are existing only two guitars of this type worldwide, that were built by the famous luthier.
This guitar built in 1965 and numbered 762 is an absolute beauty, one of the finest Hermann Hauser ® II guitars one could imagine. It is absolutely free of cracks and only wears a few minimal playing marks on the top. The varnish is entirely original and untouched, and the top is hand signed. Only the best woods were used for this guitar: German bear-claw spruce and highly figured Brazilian rosewood (Cites certified).
What an incredibly velvety and harmonious sound. Each note is of outermost precision and the endless seeming sustain is consistent up to the highest notes. This rare guitar really produces one of the richest tones we have ever heard on a classical guitar.
Both the perfect balance and the impressive timbre make this guitar by Hermann Hauser® II one of the most beautiful and noble instruments we have ever had the pleasure to offer.
