SOUTHWELL, Gary, England
Hauser I 1940 Reproduction
Expected: May 2013
Price to be Determined
Performed upon by Julian Bream in his "Great Estates Tour" of England, these magnificent concert guitars have been designed, built and refined since 1995 in an ongoing collaboration with Julian Bream.
Fashioned after the vintage 1940 Rose Augustine Hauser I guitar that Julian Bream performed and recorded with towards the end of his international touring career - Southwell's beautiful Hauser copies capture the essence of their illustrious progenitor (even down to the original instrument's soundboard and back tap tones) with uncanny accuracy.
Expect an aged Old World quality to this new guitar's elegant sound: profoundly deep basses, pure ringing trebles, wide color palette, excellent projection, superb playability. (Learn More)
