❌SOLD❌ Kenny Hill Hauser 37 Classical Guitar, 2005


Instrument Categories: , , ,

Here we are looking at a Kenny Hill Hauser 37 Classical guitar, built during 2005 in Ben Lomond California. Kenny Hill has been building since the mid 1970s and is highly respected. The Hauser 37 model recreates a guitar played for many years by Andres Segovia.

This Kenny Hill Hauser 37 model features a European Spruce top, Indian Rosewood sides, back, headplate and bridge, with a Mahogany neck and ebony fingerboard. The headstock features a traditional style V joint. The scale length is 650mm and the nut width 51.3mm or 2.02 inches. Rubner tuners are installed.

The French Polish finish is in good condition – it is actually a thin alcohol-based varnish, applied by hand. For its many virtues, French Polish is somewhat delicate and marks easily. It is very much unlike modern synthetic finishes, offering both less physical protection and dramatically less dampening of the instrument’s vibration.

More From The Builder on the Kenny Hill Hauser 37:

“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.”
