The similar case happened to John Williams and Smallman as well as the other mutualism between professional players and luthiers. I know it sounds unfair but there are many of those believers (I am probably one of them) who think that does not matter how good is the replica, a Hauser (I, II, III or even IV) is the real Hauser. The others may sound better or whatever but still they are not a Hauser

Are you sure the Euro 10,700 is correct? that is pretty good deal despite I have had unpleasant with a Hauser III several years ago.
I would not mind to place a booking at this price. How long is the wait? do they really take in order from buyer directly?
Why don't you write him? Hermann will answer you in English. The email address is posted at his website. The waiting period is 4-5 years. You don't even need to leave a deposit.
