Based on 1937 Hauser guitar with traditional bracing, solid wood back, sides and top including wooden bindings and purflings and a handmade rosette.
I have been building this guitar for a long time now. It is the most popular guitar I build having a very developed tone and even sound. 
I build the guitars by hand using traditional methods and select all the materials for each guitar with a view to achieveing 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 lacquered by hand to a very high standard using a specially developed lacquer which can be applied very thinly allowing the guitar to develop over time. It is also possible to order a guitar with either a french polish or an oil varnish finish at additional cost.
