  • Comments:

    Stefan Nitschke is a very talented young German maker (and has been a professional level guitarist) who has had substantial practical guidance from Gerhard Oldiges and is producing finely-crafted instruments. This left-handed 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 one of Stefan's guitars.
    A very fine, refined instrument of quality that competes with many at much higher price.
