Hermann Hauser ® II is worldwide known for his classical guitars that were played by famous guitarists like Julian Bream and Andrés Segovia.

There are existing only two guitars of this type worldwide, that were built by the famous luthier.
The top of this guitar is made of German spruce wood which Hauser ® II also used for his classical guitars. For the sides and the two-piece back he has chosen beautiful flamed maple wood. The special tuning machines are embedded into the head and covered by a beautiful decorated plate. It’s a beautiful guitar in almost mint condition. Including original case.
