    All shellac french-polished.

  • Front:

    European spruce of very fine quality with a lot of medullary over the whole soundboard. Hauser reproduction rosette. Dark, slim rosewood bridge with bone edges to front and rear.

  • Tuners:

    Blake-Robson Hauser-style tuners with plain side-plates and ebony buttons mounted on the rosewood-faced head.

    65cm with 19 frets on an ebony fingerboard

  • Condition:

    This 2011 instrument is in very good condition; just some really small marks. Looks and feels beautiful.

  • Comments:

    These Hauser heritage guitars of Gary Southwell have long been recognised as successful Hauser reproductions, not least by Julian Bream who has had several of them. Their feel, weight, primary resonance, balance and sound character are all resembling the Hauser I instruments - and this one is just like that.
