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 Double-Top offers superior dynamics, a balanced spectrum of timbres, and a crisp and sustained tone. This Special Edition has a unique look and construction. The bridge is made of super-light checkerboard wood, which gives the soundboard an even better responsiveness. It features elegant diamond or rhombus shaped inlays on both sides of the strings. This feature, reminiscent of Antonio de Torres’ characteristic guitar bridges, makes this guitar stand out from the usual Armin Hanika collection. Another, albeit more subtle, construction detail is the flat top, in contrast to the typical arched top, which gives the guitar an exceptionally crisp and precise sound.
