This is one of my "Hauser inspired" traditional model guitars. The guitar has an excellent Master Spruce top from Rudolf Fuchs, dark straight grained EIRW back and sides, a Cedar neck with a Carbon Fibre reinforcement rod, an EIRW bridge with a 12-hole tie block, black Ebony fretboard, bone nut and saddle and EIRW bindings. The soundboard Spruce has wider grain lines and has excellent stiffness. The rosette is handmade by me and each guitar has a different rosette.
The tuners are RUBNER model 150-110a, Hauser shape, not polish brass(dull), with Ivory imitate rollers and Oval ivory imitate handles.
The guitar is all French Polished.
The action at the 12th fret is 4.0 mm on bass side and 3.0 mm on treble side, and there is lots of saddle, so it could be adjusted.
Total weight is 1525 grams. Price includes a Marco Magi case. Strings are D'Addario EJ45.
Audio samples and more photos are available upon request.

Looks like a very nice guitar at a good price!

Edit: I love Rudolf's wood... every guitar I've built from it sounded good. It's like a magic tonic for guitars... :D Not really magic, it's just all cut and dried really well and ends up sounding great.

Beautiful label, I like the artistic simplicity.

Cheers,

Chris

Thanks for your kind words, Chris. In fact, Mr. Rudolf Fuchs offers high quality spruce, really well cut and dried, at a reasonable price, I think. And it's always pleasure to deal with him. Usually, my first choise.

All the best.
