2009 Darren Hippner Hauser #552 Spruce CSA


Darren and I have been working together since 2003, where he has always impressed with the modeling and building of his guitars, his deep, instinctive knowledge, coupled with his extreme work ethic.  This guitar was from a batch of Hausers I had from him back in 2010.  The woods are phenomenal, her sound decidedly clean and pure in her voices and separation.  The play on her is gorgeous. Powerful, musical and expressive with easy play.

She is pre-owned, where I felt she needed a professional setup and light refreshing of the top. There is still evidence of honest playing wear on the top, some slight abrasion along the binding of the butt of the guitar, back & sides are in nice shape with some expected checking.  The guitar plays and sounds as sweet as possible.  A very good guitar by Darren Hippner.



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. Thanks. Rich

MP3 Audio – 190104-2009 Darren Hippner Hauser #552 Spruce CSA – the guitar is very clear, with a smooth warmth and blooming basses that really works well.  Darren is a downright prodigy when it comes to building.  The setup helped the guitar to play and sound beautifully in my hands.  My distractions aside, you can hear the beauty of this guitar.

A link to my book of personal compositions is available below.   A TAB edition is also available.  Thank you kindly.  Rich
