Kenny Hill Hauser ’37 Classical, 2009 No Longer Available

Comments Here we have a Kenny Hill Hauser ’37 Classical, 2009 model. This instrument has been well played and has a few marks, as French Polish finishes are prone to, but is in excellent structural condition.

Here’s what Kenny Hill has to say about this model:
“We are pleased to announce our new Hauser ’37 model – a very desirable concert guitar. The original guitar built for Andres Segovia by Hermann Hauser presently resides in New York’s Metropolitan Museum. Kenny Hill decided to develop the Hauser ’37 by closely following Richard Brune’s documented specifications both in materials and construction techniques. The results are very pleasing. This guitar’s sophistication, subtlety and quality of sound is exceptional. The Hauser ’37 is designed for the player seeking a singularly unique instrument, featuring the qualities of a custom made guitar, a faithful representation of Hauser’s timeless design, a joy to play and a exceptional sound.”

Serial Number 2880, built during 2009 at Kenny Hill’s shop in Ben Lomond, California, USA.
Pricing $3,599.00 CAD with hardshell case.
Neck Mahogany neck with ebony fingerboard. 650mm scale length with 51mm nut width.
Frets Original frets with minor wear.
Body Hauser ’37 style design and construction with European spruce top, Indian Rosewood back, sides,bridge and headplate.
Finish Light lacquer French Polish finish with some wear – some scratches and dings on the top and dings on the sides. French Polish provides a very light, unrestrictive protective surface that lets the instrument resonate. It is a glossy finish but does not provide the ‘poured glass’ effect of modern heavy gloss finishes. You will see surface characteristics through the gloss – sinkage in pores and along grain lines. It’s also delicate compared to modern finishes, so it’s a bit easier to mark, but it’s also much more repairable should that be desired.
Hardware/electronics Gold Rubner tuners with pearlescent buttons, bone nut and saddle. Strung with Hannabach 815 Hard strings. Strap pins have been professionally installed.
Playability/Action Plays well and speaks clearly.
Case Black Hardshell ‘Guardian’ case included.
