Beginning in 1974, Hermann Hauser ® III and his father built guitars independently in the same workshop. Hermann Hauser ® III provided his instruments with his own numbering and signature. Andres Segovia attested guitars of Hermann Hauser ® III indescribably beautiful sounds, and Pepe Romero simply calls his Hause r® guitar the classical guitar with the purest sound. The secret of the sound of a Hauser ® guitar is to be found not only in technical processing. Just like his ancestors, Hermann Hauser ® III cultivates the personal and amicable relations to his guitarists. Depending on the artists´ wishes, he tunes his guitars to specific sound frequencies. Before constructing neck profiles and finger boards, and before determining the length of the strings, he starts with a deep analysis of the artist’s needs and demands. Hermann Hauser ® III spends a lot of time on studying historical instruments, especially those of his ancestors. From this, both supreme works – the restoration of historic guitars and new development of special limited editions – emerge. For his work, Hermann Hauser ® III received highest awards from professional organizations and highest acknowledgement of the international guitar community. In order to build guitars at a level of highest perfection, he counts on: reliable instinct, especially for the guitarist’s way of playing, a feeling for forms, to give musical aesthetics to the instruments, handcraft talent, to correctly process the living resource wood, musicality, to recognize the sonority of the instruments, and, above all: love for the profession. The waiting period for a new instrument is about five years, because involving plenty of time is the only way for an artistic guitar to arise. Andres Segovia wrote into the Hauser ® family guest book: “A friend for the rest of your life”.
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.
