  • Year:

    1965 - no. 762. Signed and dated 7-1-65 underneath the spruce front.

  • Body:

    Back and sides of Brazilian rosewood. The timber of the sides is of very fine quality; dark and quarter-sawn with straight grain. The back is unexceptional but dark, uniform and stable.

    Top bout:- 282 mm wide & 92 mm deep.
    Waist:- 238 mm
    Bottom bout:- 367 mm wide & 97 mm deep.
    This is a little larger than both the 1958 guitars, numbered 632 and 635.

    Bavarian haselfichte spruce with a lovely rosette, black rosewood bridge and the double, green purflings.

    Original Lansdorfers with engraved sideplates and white mother-of-pearl buttons.

  • Scale:

    646mm

  • Neck Width:

    51 mm at the nut

  • Weight:

    1567 grams

  • Condition:

    In exceptional condition, particularly given that it has been played professionally for more than 20 years.
    No repairs, no cracks, original frets, original polish and only very minor playing marks.

  • Comments:

    A little larger and heavier than the late 1950's Hauser II's, this is another lovely instrument. With an air resonance nearer to G, this instrument has such clarity, refinement and a lovely balance combined with rounded, natural and traditional tone colours that grace any repertoire.
