Roy Fankhänel’s workshop is situated in Oelsnitz, Germany where he builds marvelous classical guitars. In detail, he thereby attends to his customers’ wishes and creates wonderful unique instruments.
This beautiful guitar was finished in February 2017 was designed in cooperation with Siccas Guitars. The harmonic matching of the woods and the decorative details give the instrument a precious appearance. The bear claw top is handsomely grained, the back and sides are made of exquisite ovangkol. The binding, rosette and bridge show recurring classy elements of green, brown and black lines, and the marvelously worked wave-like end of the fingerboard over the rosette matches the rounded wooden tuning pegs perfectly. To simplify barré, the fingerboard is horizontally arched, and furthermore raised to enable the easy use of higher frets. In fact, the playability is amazing. The sound is terrifically dynamic, clear and balanced with bright trebles and round basses. The nut is carved in the style of Richard Jacob Weißgerber and the tuners are made by Rubner. A Hiscox Pro II hard-shell case is included.
