In 1974, Hermann Hauser III at the age of 15, apprenticed to a local stringed instrument maker, and after winning the highest national awards for apprentices he attended a school for instrument building in Germany, the same school that his great-grandfather, Josef Hauser, and his grandfather Hermann Hauser I, and his father Hermann Hauser II, attended, and from which his daughter also has graduated. In 1978 Hermann began to working with his father, and recalls: "I had to start all over again with instrument building". "The most important influence on my work and my career was my father's teachings".  Hermann's methods have tended to follow the traditions of his grandfather and father from whom he has inherited a considerable quantity of wood. He only builds from 12 to 15 guitars per year, and feels that it is their ability to project sound that makes them great. 

After 10 years on the waiting list in 2013 I visited Hermann Hauser’s shop in Reisbach and selected woods for this instrument— from woods that Hermann Hauser I had purchased more than 80 years ago. During this visit I had the opportunity to play a Hauser 1 guitar made in 1931 for Segovia, with a four piece back. It was without a doubt the finest guitar I have ever played. “Build me this.” I told Hermann. As a dealer I can not financially justify keeping this instrument, so I am listing it— but don’t look for a discount.
