Hermann Hauser II was born in 1911 and worked along with his father Hermann Hauser I in the same workshop from 1930. He took over the administration of the workshop in 1952 and led the company until 1983. He is one of the most important luthiers of the 21st century. Julian Bream, one of the most popular guitarists of the last century, played a guitar which was 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.
