664mm scale! Say what you will about longer scales, longer than 650mm, but I play cleaner on my 664 than my 650mm. I've been using a 650mm for over a year. Last weekend I took my 664mm to my restaurant gig. I really feel I play better on it. I would guess, this buyer of the Hauser style has several longer scale instruments.

When going through some old pics my mother left me I found one from the late 1800's . It was of my great grand mother who's last name on my mothers side was Hauser. Katherine Hauser Mitchell. I found this out about a year or two ago and told Hermann III about it. Who knows we could be related! LOL

The Mitchell side of my family was in the Civil war and another ancestor on my mom's side, David Bushnell built the "Turtle" sub in 1775.

Here is my Hauser relative, Great grandma Katherine Hauser

How does your "Hauser" sound? The bracing is almost identical to the 1991 Hauser III with a cedar top (655mm scale) in Sheldon Urlik's book.

Hi David,

I guess somebody requested a 664 mm?

This is my favorite bracing. Hauser II 1950's Segovia model bracing. They have all been great guitars. Especially my newer ones. One of my best selling guitars.

Yup. Very easy to play even though it is a longer scale.
