I agree totally
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!
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?
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.
