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 HE Doubletop model is part of Hanikas’s professional Line representing the peak in guitar-making sound and craftsmanship. The classical guitars are designed and composed to meet the individual needs and requirements of demanding guitar virtuosos. The finest choices of wood in conjunction with master craftsmanship and the use of the noblest and highest-quality materials result in unique works of sound art.
The HE Doubletop delivers superior dynamics, a balanced range of tone colour, and a crisp and sustained sound. This special edition “Cocobolo” has a unique look and construction. Back and sides, as well as bridge, rosette, fingerboard, and head veneer, are made with the highest quality cocobolo. Not only is this guitar a double top, but it also has a double back with a layer of carbon fiber to reinforce the back and increase the reflection of sound to the soundhole. It is therefore a particularly powerful guitar with a unique look.
