  • Comments:

    This guitar is a faithful bench copy, replica of Hauser II 1959-660, made after many hours of survey and measurement of the 1959 instrument - which is in our permanent collection. The outcome is extremely successful with feel and sound truly reflecting the original remembering one is new and the other is 60 years old. With air resonance around F, it has the expected Hauser depth of bass with a very clear, flexible, sweet treble.
    Allowing for slightly heavier Rodgers tuners, the weight is virtually identical to the original.
    This is a really very fine guitar, beautifully-crafted and sounding excellent already. A real treat!
