This instrument is a copy of a Guadagnini, of the sort that Mauro Giuliani (1781-1829) would have played. According to the Hermann Hauser III, this classical guitar was one of several instruments that his grandfather, Hermann Hauser I, built for Prof. Heinrich Scherrer, "a famous lute and classical guitar player (the king of the lute and guitar in Munich in the period from 1900 to 1920)." The back, sides, and neck are of European flamed maple. The top is of German spruce. Like all the instruments, Hauser Sr. made for Prof. Scherrer the top was not varnished, but left nearly natural. The fingerboard is scalloped and has metal frets to 9th fret, with ivory used for the upper frets. Its string length is 645mm, 48mm. nut. Everything is original. In this instrument this master luthier achieved a tone that is typical of Guadagnini's concert guitars: balanced, refined, dry yet clear, with concentrated lively trebles and resonant basses. The separation is excellent, but the strings blend perfectly in chords.
