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 Hauser ® 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”.
The tuners are made by Klaus Scheller. There is a little ding below the bridge. Beside this, the guitar is in mint condition. The original Götz case is included.
