This is a beautiful, very special guitar. Excellent playability, very powerfull and a beautiful sound. Any professional guitarist will surprise the audience by demonstrating the possibillities of this double top. You will enjoy playing this guitar every minute.

                                              lots of upper harmonic content for sparkle in the sound, plus mass
                                              and stiffness for sustain and projection
- Relatively thick and heavy sides laminated to increase stiffness and block energy loss from
   the top.                 
- Body slightly deeper than on most Hauser guitars to create a darker, fuller sound

   trussrod
