    Helmut Hanika learned from his Grandfather the construction of violins and later became entirely devoted to building guitars. Helmut started his own workshop in 1953 and later his son Armin Hanika joined the workshop in 1980. Armin passed his master craftsman examinations in 1987 and has been running the shop since 1994. Armin's dedication and obsession to achieve the best sound and playability, has led to a level of perfection and sound quality widely recognized in the guitar world. Today Hanika brand is synonymous with high quality guitars and are in the hands of great players around the world.


    Hanika does not stockpile, all guitars are built to order.

    Build time depends on model and elected options.


    Grand Konzert, an innovation for large rooms.The Grand Konzert's back and ribs are made from best Palo Escrito tonewood from Mexico and are complemented by a perfectly cut spruce soundboard made with the finest of wood qualities. A second soundboard made from quality Santos rosewood that floats within the body is responsible for outstanding projection and a fuller sound. The asymmetrically weighted domed soundboard with sevenfold fan bracing optimises this classical guitar's efficiency.

    It's particularly its warm and facet-rich timbre, the full sound and the outstanding sound projection that makes the Grand Konzert ideal for ‘big performances’.The monitor sound hole supports the guitarist's own perception and helps improve the direct audibility and monitoring of the sound.The pierced rosewood-maple-Macassar head, the exclusive ‘Alessi’ tuning machines and the high-gloss varnished body with soundboard that has been most elaborately hand-polished with shellac round off this instrument both in regard to its look and sound.
