Karl Hauser Classical Guitars Bubenreuth, W. Germany

I still, after 11 years since my posting, have not found a Model 830 Karl Hauser guitar. But I am impressed with all the responses and comments over the years so after many years of research, here is what I know about Karl Hauser.

I have owned many Karl Hauser guitars since 1970. A model 610 and two 730's. The Karl Hauser label was distributed by Ideal Music Merchandising, N.Y.C. about 1965 to about 1983. The label included violins, cellos. violas and a limited number of other stringed instruments including electric guitars. All of these instruments were made by Hofner of West Germany. I
am sorry to report there was never a Karl Hauser and the name was selected to start a U.S.A. market for affordable instruments with a very famous name (Hauser of the famous Hermann Hauser family. Ambitious USA salesmen started a rumor that Karl was a distant and excentric cousin of Hermann Hauser and actually used tooling from the Hermann Hauser shop. I contacted Hermann Hauser III by e-mail and he denies any relation or has any information about Karl Hauser. Here is an approximation of what Karl Hauser guitars are worth today model series and price +/- 25% ......

Series 500 - $300.00 Series 600 - $400.00 Series 700 - $500.00 Series 800.00 - $600.00

Even though the Karl Hauser myth is disgraceful, the Karl Hauser (Hofner) guitars are exceptional, rare instuments. In 1979, I recorded "Classics for Classical Guitar" with a Karl Hauser model 730 which I purchased in 1970 and still own. The tone is
sweet and the bases are piano like. The guitar is 650 mm X 52 mm. Solid rosewwood back and sides, Engleman spruce top and African black ebony finger board. The rosette is real wood matrix and is outstanding. From Bach to Albeniz the Karl Hauser 730 was equally at home. I have some very expensive, concert grade guitars including a real Hermann Hauser II. Blind folded I would have great difficulty telling the two apart. The Karl Hauser is an exceptional guitar from a luthier who never existed. Myths are designed not to be outdone.

Re: Karl Hauser model 830 Classical Guitar

As you know, Hermann Hauser family and descendant are very famous for all of their guitar models. You can not compare Karl Hauser with H. Hauser .
Eventhought Karl Classical guitar models were sound as best as H. Hauser, but Karl Hauser could not make his name compares with prestige Hermann Hauser. They shared the same sound board design, bracing technique, Fret board design, same woods, same materials, but Karl guitar are worth only 1/10 of Hermann. People tends to pay 20,000 for H. Hauser, but may be 2000 for Karl Karl, however, were well known for exporting electric guitar, Bass guitar, violin, viola and other strings.

Karl Hauser guitar

Hello,

I have a Karl Hauser Classical over 40 years old. There is a white sticker tag (about 1"x1/2") that I can see through the sound hole, with a hand written number 620. Is that a quantity number or a series number? This guitar is in excellent condition. If you have some information
you wish to share, please email me.

Herman Hauser Guitars range from 2000~ 12000 USD, depending on Hauser 1,2 or 3 and type of wood was used for the Back/Side.
Karh Hauser, depending on model, type of woods for top/back/side, if it mint condition it is worth from 700~3500$

Re: Karl Hauser model 830 Classical Guitar

Karl Hauser was cousin of the last Herman Hauser. His famous designs were Violin/Viola. There was time he exported a vast electric guitars with Hofner around the World. For Classical guitar, all his models were based on Hauser's design

I am curious about the value of such a guitar. I actually have owned a Karl Hauser guitar since it wss given to me in 1970. It is in excellent condition - I am not much of a musician and it has been used relatively regularly but not heavily. I am planning on giving it to my daughter (who is a musician) and wonder what I am giving her.

I also found a Karl Hauser at a tag sale. It is a 730. I actually play it and it sounds great - but I have no idea if it has a value. I actually wouldnt part with it, but would like to find out if it is worth anything. I paid virtually nothing for it.

Re: Karl Hauser model 830 Classical Guitar

The 730 Model, does the back and side are Indian Rose wood ? If it is good condition, I am willing paying 700 euro

Thanks

Re: Karl Hauser model 830 Classical Guitar

I owned a Karl Hauser in the 1970s. It was a nice playing, nice sounding guitar. I am not sure, but I believe I heard someone claim that he was related to the Hermann hauser family. In spite of this, his guitars are not worth a whole lot. They are fairly wellmade, but are not considered investment quality instruments

Re: Karl Hauser model 830 Classical Guitar

I have the same guitar but have yet to find any information on Karl Hauser guitars. Just viollas and violins and may be a cousin of Herman Hauser, the famous guitar maker. I would love to get any information on my guitar. Especially the value. Dillon
