  • Front:

    European, haselfichte / bearclaw, heat-treated spruce of really superb, characterful quality with a lot of medullary over the whole soundboard.

  • Comments:

    Tobias Braun makes very high quality instruments often with exceptional material quality.
    Having a different sound from his regular design, this one has immediately obvious Hauser sound world with a deep, focussed bass that holds the bottom octave well, combined with a singing and pure treble. Already sounding immediately impressive and gorgeous, it will nevertheless further develop into a very fine guitar with playing.
    So - a true concert guitar with strength and beauty of sound suitable for performer, collector or anyone that appreciates the beauty of this level of craft.
