Although the German luthier Hermann Hauser Sr. (1882-1952)  is best remembered for the remarkable instruments he built in the Spanish tradition after 1924. In that year, both Andres Segovia and Miguel Llobet visited Hauser in Munich and Segovia encouraged Hauser to copy his 1912 Manuel Ramirez guitar (an instrument generally believed to have been built by Santos Hernandez while he was foreman of the Ramirez shop). He examined and made measurements of this instrument. As Llobet owned an 1859 Antonio de Torres, Hauser also had opportunity to examine it as well. Although Hauser began building in the Spanish tradition in 1925, he had been building guitars, lutes, and other related instruments in the German tradition since 1900 (see our collection). While it is generally thought that Hauser made perhaps 250 guitars in the Spanish tradition between 1925-1952, he made no more than this number in the German tradition. So these guitars are equally rare.  I consider these instruments to be good investments, and collect them. This guitar is part of my collection, but as I have recently added an even rarer 1937 Vienna model (Hauser made few of these after 1924), so I have decided to sell this one. This guitar was made in the year Hauser and Segovia meet, has been restored to excellent condition.
