Instrument Categories: , ,

Built during 2010 in Los Angeles, this GVR Hauser classical guitar by German Vazquez Rubio is in very good, clean condition with only light wear. Constructed in the traditional Spanish manner with the sides integrated into the heel, this example sports a Spruce top with herringbone rosette, Indian Rosewood for the sides and back, and curly Maple binding. The neck, body blocks and linings are Mahogany. The head plate, 12-hole bridge and fingerboard and Ebony, and the tie-block has a small Abalone panel. On the edge of the fingerboard at the 7th fret, there is a small Abalone position marker. This older model has 19 frets, while current productions have an added 20th fret extension on the treble side.

As is the case on an increasing number of high quality guitars, the GVR Hauser finish is French Polish, hand applied without spray equipment. French Polish is very thin and provides some protection to the woods while imposing the smallest restriction on its vibration. Here the finish is in very good condition, with light finger marks under the treble strings.

The original hard shell case is included.

The GVR Hauser is based on the work of German luthier Hermann Hauser Sr., who advanced the designs of Antonio de Torres into what most classical guitars are now based on. Hauser’s guitars were used by many of the best classical guitarists, in particular Andres Segovia and Julian Bream.

Here is the builder on the GVR Hauser model:

” German Vazquez Rubio’s award winning GVR Hauser Model has been a guitarist favorite for decades. It was with this model that German won First Place in the Concurso Nacional de Constructores y Ejecutantes de Guitarras 2000. German pays homage to legendary luthier Herman Hauser I by choosing the classic Hauser aesthetic of the three arc headstock, flamed maple bindings and a herringbone patterned rosette. What makes this model unique is German’s signature bracing system and dimensional specifications. German has fine tuned the specifications of this guitar from its inception, making the current design the finest version in its evolution.

The GVR Hauser Model has a very clean and clear sound as well as a romantic and refined tonal characteristic. Distinct note separation across all strings generates a very pleasurable feeling when executing chords. The clarity, combined with a very wide tonal palette, and wide bandwidth makes this guitar an incredibly versatile and musical instrument. German understands the difference between volume and projection and strives for optimal performance of both with this model. Playability is one of the attributes a guitarist most values and the GVR Hauser Model also delivers here. German implements properties of physics in his design that allow the guitarist to produce a higher dynamic range with less effort. This allows for easier musical expression and less hand fatigue.

Lastly this model comes standard with luxury features such as a 20th fret, a seventh fret abalone shell fret marker, and a twelve hole tie block. It is very easy to understand why this guitar has been a favorite of numerous concert artist and aficionados for so many years. “
