1937 Segovia Homage

Hear this guitar.  

Body: 1937 Hermann Hauser

Woods: Master grade Lutz Spruce, Old growth Brazilian Rosewood back and sides, Honduran Mahogany neck, Madagascar Ebony fretboard, Macassar Ebony binding, Brazilian Rosewood bridge and headplate.

Construction Details: This guitar is a faithful copy of the 1937 Hauser which Andrés Segovia played for approximately 30 years. Standard Hauser bracing using Swiss Moon Spruce. A few minor departures include my 18 hole bridge which ensures locking in the string ends, and the lack of headstock purfling which I find distracting. Tuners are Rubners from Germany crafted in the Hauser style.

Notes: I had the good fortune of meeting Mr. Segovia a few times in my youth, as a budding classical guitar student, so this particular interpretation of the classical guitar always holds special interest for me. This guitar is well balanced with a fast neck which assures precise position changes. Clear note definition and sweet, nuanced trebles in the upper registers. The bass is profondo yet well balanced against the mid and treble voices.
