Just collected from Fritz Ober in Munich, a superb new Hauser-style guitar with very low body resonance; down to near E – the lowest he has produced so far without a tornovoz. This instrument is very deep in sound yet the maker has maintained a very strong, in-balance treble. When playing this guitar, it is a real reminder of what many guitars of the 1930’s, 40’s & 50’s sounded like – rich, sweet and very lyrical. It is interesting to note how well the deep sounds of a guitar like this carry in a large space. Quite a remarkable instrument that already has shocked one or two professional players.  Now sold 22/4/09. Please enquire for the next available.  See the Home page listing under the ‘Up to Euros 10,000’ section for full details.


  • I can affirm, that this new guitar Fritz showed me in his Munich workshop is a start in a very exciting synthesis of Hauser I and Torres elements, very strong serious character, very "classical" and well balanced. I am performing on his instruments for many best choice if not playing Torres' 1856 La Leona, which Fritz has reproduced in a perfect replica last year. Top class! Wulfin.

  • It is good now that Miles included Ober guitars in his fine guitar collection at Kent. Miles' excellent service and Ober quality are suitable match. I own Ober too. Very fine guitar and playbility. The materials are exquisite.

  • ...this is indeed a very impressive instrument - I was lucky enough to play it at Fritz's workshop and again at Kent Guitar Classics. I'm not a professional but I was shocked, too...with Miles's helpful guidance I've come across quite a range of world class instruments - the choice at Kent Guitar Classics is just amazing(!), but the Ober really stands out - there is nothing more to add about the magnificent sound, your description, Miles, is very accurate (as always!), the only thing you haven't mentioned is the superb playability!
