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.
HANIKA’s Professional line stands for the highest level of sound and craftsmanship in guitar building. These concert guitars are designed and composed for the individual requirements and wishes of the demanding guitar virtuoso. The finest selection of woods combined with masterful workmanship and the use of the most exquisite and high-quality materials result in unique masterpieces.
The Natural Series consists of instruments with the highest demands on tone and playability to a perfect price-performance ratio by focusing on the essentials.
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 tonewoods for guitars. Along with the thin spruce top, the Natural Torres gets a very good attack with full sound and a separated sharp sound. The response and sustain of this guitar are perfectly balanced, which makes it the perfect instrument for many different types of players.
A 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. The Alessi 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 Torres. Comes with a Hanika Hiscox Pro II case.
