Sorry, this item is not currently in stockCervantes Hauser Concert with Solid Spruce and Rosewood
We first met Alejandro Cervantes a few years ago when, unannounced, he came into our store with six guitars to show. He had spent the prior week with a display of his craft at a GFA conference that had convened in nearby Columbus, Georgia. Although, it is not uncommon for guitar builders to seek us out to show and hopefully sell us their wares, it is very uncommon for us to purchase, on the spot, unfamiliar instruments made by someone whom we have only just encountered. Alejandro and his guitars were an exception. Not only did we find him to be engaging and extremely likable, we also loved his guitars. And, we surprised him and ourselves when we bought four of them.
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 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.
This guitar includes an archtop hardshell case.
