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.
Back and sides of this guitar are made of high quality East Indian rosewood and the top is made of excellent spruce. Rosewood is considered one of the most universal tone woods for guitars, along with the thin spruce top the Natural PF gets a very good attack with full sound and a separated sharp sound. Response and sustain in of this guitar are perfectly balanced, what makes it the perfect instrument for many different type of players.
Special feature of this guitar is the HANIKA “NATURAL” surface. This very thin varnish/ wax sealing makes the surface more resistant to typical playing loads and yet the thin sealing creates a particularly open and transparent sound.
This Hanika is made of fine massive tone woods and features a thin top with an asymmetrical 5-fan-bracing. The golden mechanics with ebony knobs, the hardwood reinforced Cedro-neck, the fretboard made of African blackwood and the 3-layer rosewood-maple-rosewood headstock underline the high quality of the Natural PF. Comes with a Hanika Hiscox Pro II case.
