The Hauser sound is famous for its perfect balance and clean separation of voices. Overtones are very controlled and resulting sound is incredibly pure, with a very focused fundamental at the core of every note. Because of this very pure and direct sound, adding color and nuance of sound is up to the player ï¿½ moving the right hand over the soundhole yields a very liquidy and velvety quality of tone, while moving towards the bridge achieves a brighter, almost ï¿½brassyï¿½ sound. This style of guitar appeals to the player wanting maximum control over their own dynamic and modulation (tone color) choices. Cordobaï¿½s Hauser is built with a solid Englemann spruce top and solid Indian rosewood back and sides. It features a Spanish cedar neck topped with an African ebony fingerboard.A few modern refinements such as a truss rod, geared tuning machines, durable nitrocellulose finish, and non-gut strings were added to improve on what was not available in the 1930s but are essential today. The result is an instrument that exemplifies the authentic Hauser design, voicing, and feel, and captures a rare piece of guitar making history.
This guitar is handmade in the USA.
