The guitar of the last century
Hermann Hauser
“1937 Andrès Segovia”

Hermann Hauser (1882–1952) learned the trade in his father Josef’s workshop, and initially devoted himself to the construction of Viennese-style lutes and guitars.

The study of Torres’ work on original models and the collaboration with Andres Segovia led him to work on a new “Spanish” style guitar.It is his instrument of 1937 that Segovia called “the greatest guitar of our time”.

I formally build a faithful copy of this famous guitar with material and decorative variations.


The Hauser model is made without using materials that require CITES certification.
I am able to customize the length of the string, the widths of the fretboard and the neck size of my guitars according to individual needs.
