Original photos from Hauser III's workshop while the guitar is being made. The construction of this guitar started in 2019.
In 1954, Andrés Segovia wrote an article "in memoriam" of Hauser in the magazine Guitar Review, n. 16. In this article, Segovia described Hauser guitar as "the most important guitar of our time" (The Greatest Guitar of our Epoch).
Segovia was referring to the Hauser guitar made for him in 1937 (the guitar is dated February 4, 1937) and that was the cause of Segovia to put in a corner the "Ramirez" that he had been playing since the beginning. This guitar is still preserved today and can be seen at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
In full professional maturity the master of master, Andres Segovia switched to Hauser guitar and this guitar accompanied him during the longest part of his career, from 1937-1970.
Today Hermann Hauser III and his daughter Kathrin Hauser, in his workshop in Reisbach in Germany, kept alive the tradition and the same high level of craftsmanship that earned him a place of honor for ever in the history of the guitar.
Segovia model is a replica of what is probably the most important guitar in recent history of classical guitar. Built with mime love, dedication and detail, with wood coming from the reserve Hauser I (more than 60 years old).
Model Hauser Segovia 1937 is signed by Kathrin Hauser, who has spent his entire life working and collaborating with his father Hermann Hauser III. His great skill, knowledge, love for his profession and sensitivity results in guitars full of magic, mystery and seduction.
With a warm, vintage, soul, resembles the tone of an authentic Torres but with a bright and more expressive color. Its great comfort and easy-playing together with its rich tone, makes playing this guitar a magical and unforgettable experience.
It's not a guitar for those seeking the power and brilliance of modern "double tops" or "lattice bracing".
But it is the ideal guitar for people looking for the tone and magnetism of the guitars that marked the best time in recent history of classical guitar.
