Hermann Hauser II

Hermann Hauser II was born into the family business of guitar making. His father had famously created the instrument that Andres Segovia would perform on for years--taking the Spanish style of building and creating a balance that at the time, had not before been achieved on the instrument. He passed this information on to his son, who utilized the his father's teaching to explore with his instruments even more. He used body sizes and, string lengths, and different woods to create many different types of guitars. He created somewhere between 500 and 600 hundred of them in his lifetime.
