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 2010 Segovia model is a real treasure with a strikingly beautiful bear claw top and back and sides made of rubicund flamed rosewood. The construction is traditional with Torres crown and seven-fan bracing. The green binding, framed by rosewood and the corresponding headstock embellishment form a complementary contrast to the read accents in the rosette. We are convinced by the guitar’s balanced sound connecting warm mids, strong basses and sweet trebles. The tuners are made by Reischl. A hard-case is included.
