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.
The 1a models are Armin Hanika’s most beautiful and sophisticated models. Back and sides of this 1a Torres are manufactured of finest Ziricote and the top is made of excellent spruce. Along with the thin spruce top, the 1a Torres achieves a very good response with full sound and good separation. This guitar satisfies the highest demands; it is recommended for conscious players and can completely unfold especially in slow and carried pieces.
The guitar is made of high-quality massive tonewoods and has a high gloss French polish finish on the top. The body has a gloss finish with UV-curing acrylic lacquer. The Klaus Scheller machine heads with bushes and snakewood pegs, the Cedro neck reinforced with the best hardwood, the quality ebony fingerboard, and 3-ply rosewood-maple-ziricote headstock shows the high quality of the 1a Torres. A CCCase carbon case included. This guitar is CITES-free (CF).
