  • Comments:

    Karel Dedain is a very talented maker from Antwerpen who graduated from the CMB lutherie school in Puurs under Walter Verreydt and now teaches there himself.
    Apart from his own model of classical guitar he has made wonderful reproductions of Vicente Arias, Antonio de Torres, Domingo Esteso and this guitar based on a specific 1956 Hauser II.
    The appearance of this instrument is exactly that of the Hauser IIs and with superlative materials. The sound also has the warmth of bass with air resonance just above F# and with a very clear singing treble making the whole guitar very flexible in tonal character like the originals.
