I got to play the Hauser once and wasn't all that impressed. I felt it had a neutral and clean sound that some might consider boring, but I guess that is the Hauser sound. I preferred the Cordoba Master Series Torres because it had more of that intimate Spanish sound while having great clarity. For the money, you'd probably get more bang for the buck with a Cervantes Hauser if you're looking for a Hauser instrument.

They are kind of overbuilt, heavily finished with lacquer, and not exactly lively sounding.

I've haven't played a Cordoba Master Series Hauser yet, but I do own a MS Torres. It's an excellent guitar and it has plenty of liveliness and power...it's a small little powerhouse that's capable of great range and delicacy. As for the finish...I actually prefer the very lightly applied PU finish over French Polish. The California builders responsible for the production of Cordoba's Master Series instruments do a fine job applying a very thin, protective finish.

I owned a 2007 Kenny Hill Master Series guitar years ago and my new Cordoba Torres has all the great qualities of the KH guitars. As you probably know, Kenny worked with Cordoba setting up the California production line.
