  • Comments:

    Stefan Nitschke is a young German maker (and professional level guitarist) who has had practical guidance from Gerhard Oldiges and is producing finely-crafted instruments. This one is clearly a Hauser I model; not just in appearance but also in sound. With a primary air resonance around F#, the guitar has a deep, resonant bass combined with a clear, singing treble and good volume throughout. See our Videos page for one that includes this guitar.
    This is the seventh we have bought from this maker; the previous ones were much-admired. A very fine, refined instrument at very competitive price.
