2002 Hill Hauser Model
2002 Hill Hauser Model (USA), No. 999, 650 mm scale, 52 mm nut, spruce top, deeply flamed European Maple sides and back, original french polish of shellac, Schaller gold Hauser style tuning machines, excellent original condition, showing only a few minor playing and handling wear marks. No cracks, no repairs, no alterations. This was a custom ordered Hauser style guitar made in Kenny Hill’s California workshop based on the 1937 Hauser of Segovia, but using beautiful flamed maple sides and back. In the Urlik Collection there is a very similar original Hauser Sr. made in 1932 featured on pages 94 and 95 of the new second edition. This instrument very closely resembles the original Hauser in both feel and musical performance, having a well balanced and brilliant treble and crisp, focused bass. It is very even and clear and projects perfectly with a light touch. Maple is a wonderful option for sides and backs which players today are rediscovering. Don’t delay, this one is priced to sell quickly at $3500.
