Like it a lot. Hauser I are so special. It look quite small to me. Are the later ones larger or is this a fluke? What kind of strings do you put on for the demo?
This one is the Segovia model and that is his full sized guitar. This guitar is certainly getting towards the end of his career as he passed in 1956 (I believe it was '56 anyways). The strings I use on this guitar are my most usual combo for older guitars, La Bella 2001 or Argento basses, Augustine Regal trebles.
Back to the size of this guitar....I also have a matched 1949 Llobet model, videos will be coming shortly. The Llobet model is more closely based on Torres. I sold one earlier in 2017, from 1939, that was exquisite and featured a silver tornavoz. It had the most angelic trebles I've ever heard. The Llobet model from 1949 may be my all-time favorite Hauser. It literally sounds like a Torres and Hauser had a baby. It's also a real beast of a concert guitar, far more powerful and deep than any I've seen before. I have been told of letters in the possession of a few clients of mine where Hauser is gushing about his Llobet model guitars. To the point of regretting delivering the guitar to whom it was made for. I tend to agree in his assessment.
