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.
