From 1974 on Hermann Hauser III and his father built guitars independently in the same workshop. Hermann Hauser III provided his guitars with his own numbering and signature. Andres Segovia attested to the incredibly beautiful sound of the master’s guitars, and Pepe Romero calls his Hauser the “purest sounding classical guitar”. The secret of the Hauser III guitar sound is not solely found in the artisanal workmanship. Hermann Hauser III, like his ancestors, maintains a close and friendly relationship to his guitar players. He analyses the needs and demands of every single artist before constructing neck profiles and fingerboards and adjusting the string action. Furthermore, Hermann Hauser III attended to intensive studies of historical instruments, especially the ones made by his ancestors. He received the highest awards by professional associations and the greatest approval of the international guitar scene.
This guitar was built in 2000 and wears the number 477. The perfectly sawn spruce top took a sweet dark colour with the time, that emphasizes the apparent transversal canals of the wood. This instrument has all the finest aesthetic features of the great Hauser guitars, and also their best sound qualities. The incredibly crystalline and pure trebles are supported by direct and spontaneous basses. The playing experience is unique and as Segovia wrote in the Hauser family guests book: it is “A friend for the rest of your life”.
