This Hancock displays all the best qualities of an original Hauser guitars at 1/8 the price. Sean has for many years carried out extensive research and measurements on a number of original Hauser's.

The Guitar Spruce top is aging beautifully features wonderful eye catching silky Medullary rays, with this the guitar tonal qualities are maturing with excellent clarity, sustain, separation and beauty of tone. Workmanship and materials are simply outstanding. Just like the original 1937 Hauser the tone is warm with a rich tonal palette and soft glow but is also very penetrating and clear.

It has surprising volume and is a delight to play. The guitar boasts one of the most comfortable neck-shapes and the finish on the back of the neck is finished in such a way that the left hand plays effortlessly.

Apart from the rosette, all other features of this guitar are exact, including the Headstock, bracing, body size and shape are all in the style of the Hauser I 1937 Segovia design. The sound is bold, silky, with firm colorful basses and resonant, singing trebles.

Recently, a Worldclass recitalist remarked that the treble tones had an unmistakable Hauser quality but also exquisite similarities in the higher treble strings of 'his' own late 1970's Jose Romanillos guitar which he explained have trebles which sound like "porcelain".

His remarks on my Hancock were incredible "This guitar is the without doubt the most 'unique and finest sounding Hauser I' styled guitars I've played. There is no traditional builder that comes close to matching Sean's level of craftsmanship."

This both an extremely playable and highly collectible instrument. The balance is near perfect, the guitar is highly responsive to touch and extremely open and full of projection power. Sean Hancock makes one of the finest traditional Guitars purely by hand. His instruments hold a true beauty and a lyrical tone unmatched by any maker today.

First and foremost this is a instrument with leanings to the old world sound and is without doubt a concert grade guitar.
