  • Condition:

    New. In appearance much like a Hauser, who produced many different body patterns of course. Lacquered polish throughout; very well done.

  • Comments:

    These replica guitars are very impressive at the price. They are not only copies in terms of shapes, dimensions and decoration but they have some of the feel and sound character of the real thing. The Hauser model is lovely to play; perhaps the slightly smaller body is reponsible for the spontaneous feel and sound. The sound has depth, clarity and good balance. Truly excellent value, looking highly attractive and so enjoyable to play. Highly recommended.
