That's the guitar upon which Simon Ambridge, the photographer there of course (and a mighty fine taker of photos) based his Hauser model. Of which I'm lucky enough to see two now every week 8)
Simon Ambridge Series 40 (2005)
Trevor Semple Series 88 (1992)
Louis Panormo (1838)

Nice. I own a couple of copies of that guitar. Both excellent. It would be amazing to play the original.

I've been researching luthier bios, guitars & also listening to as many videos & sound clips (good quality ones).....in preparation for my next purchase..... Hausers & Torres: I like them both; I'd be hard pressed to chose between the 2......but Luthier Frtiz Ober said in some magazine that a guitar sound some where in between Torres & a Hauser is Ideal. I agree totally :bravo:

You should talk to Aaron Green about his smaller-bodied Romanillos/Torres/Hauser inspired guitar. I opted for this over his larger plantilla and I'm thrilled with the results. If you're ever in the Boston area, feel free to get in touch, and definitely schedule a visit with Aaron!
Remember Anthony Weller, please help. Contact myself or Aaron Green for details.

If you look carefully it appears to have a 2 piece fingerboard, this is the same as on the 1940 Hauser that Bream used, were they built like this or is it a later addition to fix a high action ?

Hi Sean
I did do some research on his website; much of the time listening to that "Bouchet" guitar.....after listening to so many clips, my ears are attuned to Torres/Hauser/Bouchet.....my fave CG sounds in that order. Thanks for the lead on Aaron G; that's definitely an option.....yesssss i do like the smaller plantilla guitars ......do you have some videos or sound clips of his Torres or Hauser guitars? :?:

Yes it is.

In this 1940 I plated the fingerboard to correct a high action and also to correct the intonation. IIRC it was done as well by Gary Southwell with the 1940 ex-Rose Augustine that Bream played.

Thank you Sean!

Please see this video which is what I call my " Romanillos inspired" model; partially because "Llobet model Hauser inspired model" is way too cumbersome. Romanillos is very much part of that lineage and as such a Romanillos guitar is his own thing and at the same time his expression and integration of designs and concepts directly attributed to Hauser and Torres. I like to think of my own evolution in the same manner and to that end, the real truth is this model is a smaller bodied Aaron Green.

If you are in the market for a real Hauser I, I have this guitar and another one the way that is pretty damn mint. Far more $ than one of mine but for those who can and care...feel free to give me a call.:)

The chladni test of that Hauser looks very impressive.

Yes now I was going to say that.

The builder has got the node line right out near the edge of the top. This means that there is more top surface radiating sound in the monopole mode, and less of the out of phase area thus giving greater volume. Similar testing on my builds puts the node line a good 25/30 mm in from the top/ side joint. I wonder how he achieved that. Even more pronounced in the cross dipole mode.

Do we know what sort of linings he used at the top side joint?
