I have been building these guitars for a long time now. They are the most popular guitar I build, having a very developed tone and even sound.
They are based on the 1937 Hauser guitar, with traditional bracing, solid wood back, sides and top, including wooden bindings and purflings, and a handmade rosette.
I build the guitars by hand using traditional methods and select all the materials for each guitar with a view to achieving the best tone for each guitar, looking for a wide palette of tone colours and an even balance between the bass and treble.
My guitars are polished by hand to a very high standard. The finish can be applied very thinly, allowing the guitar sound to develop over time. It is also possible to order a guitar with a lacquered finish (usually lacquered back and sides, with a french polished soundboard), or an oil varnish finish, similar to that used on violins and other classical stringed instruments.
