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.
This superb guitar bearing the serial number 766 is only a few numbers away from a 1965 Hermann Hauser ® II that we were pleased to have in our assortment. The similarity between the two instruments is striking. This instrument is in excellent condition with only a small very well repaired crack on the top. Its sound is rich and elegant with an immense palette of colours. Hermann Hauser ® II’s guitars are legendary and this one is an excellent example of why these instruments are so loved by guitarists around the world.
