Rio rosewood guitar

This guitar was made for exhibition in 2011. I was still using the 1938 Hauser I outline at that time. I now use a slightly modified outline of my own design – not different enough to change the tone of the guitar, but I prefer the new shape aesthetically! The top is European spruce, and the back and sides were from some very old, dark Brazilian rosewood that I had a few sets of – very difficult to find now. Recordings of this guitar can be found on the Samples page.
