Cervantes Guitars USED HAUSER CN 2007 Alejandro Cervantes Hauser Concert (SN. 07014404)


General Description:

The quality we like most about Cervantes guitars is their tone color. All of his guitars, no matter which model, share a tonal characteristic that is the sound equivalent of a family trait. This is attractive to us, because we strive to have instruments for our customers which have some distinctive element to their sound that clearly differentiates them from others, that makes them a separate class of sound - somewhat like fine wines of differing varieties. The guitars Alejandro makes and has made for him under his supervision (PE and Concert series fall into the latter category) all have an unusual internal resonance that imbues their voice with a remarkably smooth and blended sheen - a cathedral like reverberation that adds a shimmering halo to their sound. This lovely quality is his trademark.
Of the many interpretations of the famous late 1930s era classical guitar design of Hermann Hauser I, the Hauser Concert model by Alejandro Cervantes is one of the most impressive modern renditions we have seen. With an elegant, slightly smaller body typical of a Hauser, the sound is clear and strong with lyrical trebles and crisp basses. The 650mm scale length, coupled with the smaller body, serve to create the comfortable, easy playability of this instrument.


Condition:

This Hauser Concert was purchased from us originally, and has changed hands a couple times in the years since. The guitar was generally well-maintained but actively used in that time (resulting in a pleasing played-in voice), and thus definitely shows some signs of wear. Most of this wear is the typical finish wear one would expect with regular use—small scuffs, some finish swirl, the errant dent or ding—however, one will readily notice the top crack that extends from the bridge to the butt of the guitar on the treble side of the top center seam. This crack has been repaired and is stable. Otherwise this guitar has received the typical Maple Street Guitars preparation, and it is in excellent playing condition. This instrument is a great value for anyone looking for a good “player’s guitar” or a modestly priced upgrade. GOOD+ Condition
