  • Comments:

    This superb guitar is the second replica that Enrico Bottelli has made of a 1952 Hauser (the first being made in year 2000). The sound is so very close to the original Hausers and even as new, has an open, beguiling sound with wonderful balance, impressive sustain but most of all, real character and magic in the sound. Simply superb in both looks and sound.
