German Vazquez Rubio, USA
After Hauser I (645mm short scale)
Pre-Owned 2007
Overview: German Vazquez Rubio (sometimes referred to as G.V. Rubio, German V. Rubio, German Rubio, and German Vazquez) was born in Paracho, Mexico but has resided in the USA since the 1970s. For over twenty-five years Guitars International has been honored to offer to its customers the beautiful handcrafted classical and flamenco guitars of German Vazquez Rubio.

This is the same exceptional concert guitar (same body size) as Vazquez Rubio's standard Indian/spruce Hauser Model classical guitar but with a shorter string length. Guitars International with the professional help of Naxos concert and recording artist John Holmquist, first commissioned Vazquez Rubio to build his Hauser Model many years ago. It has since become his best selling instrument. Inspired by Andres Segovia's revered 1937 Hauser I guitar now residing in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the sound of these instruments is warm and focused, possessed of a flexibility and sheen, complexity and elegance, breadth of color and character, power and depth that is distinctly musical, distinctly beautiful. Suffice it to say, this exceptionally talented maker builds from the heart.

Vazquez Rubio Hauser Model guitars purchased from Guitars International have been the instruments of choice for international competition winners, John Holmquist and Jason Vieaux both for their five Naxos recordings and in concert. The McClellan/Hanser Duo and Rod Stucky have also performed and recorded on Vazquez Rubio Hauser Model guitars purchased from Guitars International. In short, this is a wonderful concert guitar at a remarkable price. (Learn more about this classical guitar maker).
