Born in 1947, he began making guitars as a teenager, and in 1964, at the age of 17, he became an apprentice in the workshop of Tsunezaburo Kurosawa. 1969, he established his own workshop in Tokorozawa. Since then, he has continued to make guitars with excellent acoustic balance by utilizing the results of his research on Hauser I guitars, to which he has always been devoted.
The most representative of his characteristics and aesthetics are the Hauser models, which always maintain the beauty of their design, lustrous tone, and superb acoustic balance that make them worthy of being called Hauser models.
In terms of cost performance, this brand can be said to be one of the best in Japan.

This is a Hauser model No. 50 made by Shunpei Nishino. The sound board is made of spruce, and the back and sides are made of rosewood from Central and South America.
It is a model that fits Japanese tastes in every respect, and is exquisitely balanced as only a veteran maker can make it. The slightly hard sound typical of Hauser is combined with the transparency of Central and South American rosewood, resulting in a fresh sound. The acoustic balance from the rich bass to the clarity of the treble is very Hauser-like, and each note has excellent grain and separation. The expressive capacity is also excellent in a variety of ways, with sufficient amplitude and Germanic stoicism.
The basic design is of course based on the 'Segovia Model' by Hermann Hauser I. The strings are moderately tensioned and feel easy to play with no stress on the left hand.
