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 pristine and perfectly preserved Hermann Hauser ® II from 1976 is an extremely well-preserved example of the German master’s finest guitars. The guitar is in mint condition and there are no traces of playing or cracks to be found on the entire instrument. It has a magnificent rosette with red and green marquetry and the varnish is also the original. From the fine carvings of the headstock to the flawless inlays, everything is of the highest quality craftsmanship. A true work of art.
This Hauser ® II is more than just a collector’s item, it is also an excellent concert instrument. With its sweet, round and fine trebles, this remarkable guitar sounds strikingly clear, with generous volume and marvelous supporting basses. It is a true concert instrument, worthy of the world’ s greatest venues. Its wonderfully balanced and enchantingly clear sound is typical for Hermann Hauser ®’s II guitars, and the overall warm sound character is a great source of inspiration for every musician.
