At HANIKA craftsmanship is understood as custom work and sound as art. A guitar from the famous Baiersdorf manufacture is a symbol of quality and craftsmanship tradition. Since 1953 it has been the basis for the success story of the company, combined with trend-setting innovations. Master plucked instrument maker Armin Hanika took over the company from his father in 1993 and has been building classical guitars of outstanding quality ever since.
This particular custom model is only available at Siccas Guitars and it is special in many ways. The guitar features a raised fingerboard for easier access in the higher registers, a double back design that generates immense power when plucked, custom inlays on the bridge, and at the twelfth fret, and a special carving on the heel cap. It is a real powerhouse that can fill any room with music of the highest degree. The 1a models are Armin Hanika’s most beautiful and sophisticated instruments. Back and sides are manufactured of finest Ziricote, which is a very precious and particularly fantastic tonewood. Thanks to the thin and perfectly crafted cedar double top, this guitar achieves an outstanding response with full sound and great separation. Recommended for conscious and advanced players, it completely unfolds especially in slow and carried pieces. Of course, the responsiveness of the double top is also of great support when it comes to a very virtuosic repertoire.
