1971 Hermann Hauser II #910 Spruce CSA
Another magnificent example of work by the old masters. Hermann Hauser II ranks, in my opinion, among the best of them, and this guitar shows us why. I don’t believe it necessary to go on and on about the quality of sound and play emanating from this guitar. I have been fortunate to own many of Hauser II guitars, and have seen quite a few more, from the grandfather to Hermann the III. They are all mostly exemplary but Hermann II was very consistent. Clearly an investment as well as a player’s guitar. She has an exquisite voice, capable of most anything you might desire.
The guitar has had 2 owners, who took very good care of the guitar. Bob Desmond (luthier extraordinaire) of Orlando Florida was the last owner for the last 2.5 years, studying it thoroughly, using it for his own experimentation for his own guitars.
Issues with the guitar? None … She is in excellent condition.
Setup is moderate, at 4.1mm low E 12th fret, but the string break is nice, the power is evident, and it’s not overly high in my opinion. She’s playing very nicely right now. The canted fingerboard is in beautiful shape, helping with required relief, yet keeping the neck straight.
The CSA is straight grained, as you would expect, with a beautiful reddish coloring throughout, with most attractive figuring. No issues at all on the back/sides. It is the literal definition of “eye candy”. The top is superb, bear clawed, translucent in appearance. Hermann II had a very good eye and ear for the best of tonewoods.
The guitar is considered a Llobet model by Hauser II – quite a rare build, only a handful were built by Hermann Hauser II

Please feel free to contact me if you wish to discuss. Rich 631-335-5447
I prefer to sell this guitar domestically, within US Borders.
I discourage International buyers, unless you are willing to come here yourself and take delivery personally. CITES paperwork is NOT available for this guitar, though it is eligible due to Pre-Convention Status.
The price is usually listed for clarity and transparency. I am not a big fan of “Please Inquire”, thus not wasting your time, but in this case and any instrument priced over $25K, I am listing as “Inquire”. I will say that the price is well north of $50K as she is in Excellent Condition.
The guitar’s price is non-negotiable. There will be NO trades. All transactions will happen through bank wire. All buyer’s will be vetted by me. It will be shipped 1 Day Express via the USPS or UPS or FedEx. It can also be personally delivered (at cost of transportation, flight, charges, driving time, etc) or, you are free to schedule an appointment with me at the gallery to inspect and pick up the guitar personally. Thank you kindly in advance for your understanding and consideration.
Listening with high quality headphones or audio equipment is highly recommended including EQ manipulation, if possible. We record everything flat with just a touch of Reverb to relieve dryness. My goal is to record the guitar as realistically as is possible. I speak in the recordings, my thoughts about the guitar (and possibly other things?). My speaking also serves to give you my first impressions and to also give you a balance of the engineering (or lack thereof) versus the sound of the guitar. I simply do not have time to engineer much of anything. Thanks. Rich
