Meeting Manuel Adalid was a special treat for me, knowing of his longstanding pedigree in the industry, as well as his work ethic. Playing some of his concert classical guitars was an equal pleasure. I decided then and there that I would have Manuel’s best work in my own gallery. From the Lacote to the Torres to the Hauser to his own Anniversario, I was so immensely taken with his guitar’s ability to voice the music authentically, with subtlety, and with grace.
There is much to say about this Hauser. First, it is very special. It is Number 2 in a very select series of guitars built by Manuel and it is signed by him personally, built in his personal workshop in Alboraya. I have an Adalid Custom Classical Guitar based on a Reyes here, built by Manuel in this same workshop. Gorgeous, bringing his 50+ years of experience to the table in these extraordinary builds.
I should say that this is a Bench Copy of the 1937 Hauser Segovia Edition, as compared to other models out there that are “based” on a Hauser ’37. Manuel builds another Hauser model, which is based on the Hauser ’37, but it cannot be called a bench copy. There is a difference! I talk about this below, including woods, workmanship and most especially, the sound. Man, the sound!
Another Note….this guitar is only available in my shop. If anyone else says they have the Segovia Hauser ’37 Bench Copy built by Manuel Adalid, they are not telling the truth.
Right now, this is the 2nd one built exclusively by Manuel himself, and it is only available here. Moving forward, I will be the only shop carrying this select line of guitars built by Manuel. I’m personally excited by this, for a number of reasons, but the most important being that they are seriously special. I don’t really care who you’re playing or what you spent, this guitar is better. The voice, the sound, the play, the complexity, the clarity, all of it is there and more.
The Spruce is specially selected German Spruce. Some call Euro Spruce German. This is actually German Spruce. It is drop dead gorgeous.
The East Indian Rosewood is also selected special. You can see why in the photos.
Manuel worked closely with a well known guitarist of incomparable ability, who also has an excellent ear, to develop this extraordinary line of guitars. From the choices of the woods to the tapping of the instrument’s boards, to the minutest detail, we are looking at one of the most reasonable Hauser replicas or bench copies seen in a while.
Look, some people say something like this very loosely, in my opinion. I’m telling you, this guitar is incredible.
The machines are built by the Fustero people exclusively for Manuel Adalid. They have developed a line of magnificent machines that perfectly complement many of the guitars that I have here from Manuel. They cannot be found elsewhere for the time being.
The play is magnificent. Low and accessible, it is designed for a player with proper RH Tech, but, of course, anyone can play her.
The sound. Oh yeah, the sound is the kick in the pants. True to almost a fault. In the spirit of the Hauser, this guitar embodies the ghost of the Hauser I. I kid you not. I don’t speak out of turn, or exaggerate. It’s not necessary in my business. Either something is awesomely good or it is not. If it isn’t, it’s not available here in the studio.
