Each Cordoba Master Series Hauser is built with a solid Engelmann spruce top and solid Indian rosewood back and sides. It features a Spanish cedar neck topped with an African ebony fingerboard. A few modern refinements such as a truss rod, geared tuning machines, durable finish, and non-gut strings were added to improve on what was not available in the 1930s but is essential today.
Why Consider the Cordoba Master Series Hauser?
Hermann Hauser’s 1937 model, made famous by Maestro Andres Segovia, is now regarded one of the most iconic guitars in history. The Cordoba Master series design team headed up by luthier Kenny Hill has taken great pains to recreate a 1937 model Hauser that exemplifies the design, voicing, and feel of the great master's work.
Cordoba obtained a 1937 Hauser model, studied it inside and out, and played it over and over. The mission was to understand the essence of what gives this guitar such an amazing voice and feel, and then recreate an instrument that possesses these characteristics and carries the same magic as the original. The thicknesses of the top, backs, sides, and braces were measured to the nearest hundredth of a millimeter, bracing patterns traced and mapped, and details of the materials, inlays, wood grains, and vibrations were all carefully analyzed. The guitar was played and listened to for hours to gain an understanding of the balance between the trebles and basses, resonance of the top, and a sense for the feel and response of the guitar when played in a variety of styles and environments. The overtones of these instruments are very controlled and resulting sound is incredibly pure, with a very focused fundamental at the core of every note. This characteristic gives the player complete control of the sound – moving the right hand over the soundhole yields a very fluid and velvety tonal quality, while moving towards the bridge achieves a brighter, almost “brassy” sound.
