    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 stock pile, all guitars are built to order.

    Build time depends on model and elected options.

    Hanika 50AF: Back and sides made from maple wood stained a gold-brown colour with a soundboard made from bright spruce. Our 50 AF model with its gentle sound is ideal for accompanying singers because its harmonious range of overtones goes well with overtone-rich partners. Made from solid tonewoods, this guitar comes with high-quality Teflon-mounted ‘Rubner Gold Tuning Machines’ and bushed holes. Quality features include the cedro neck that has been laminated throughout with ebony, the ebony fretboard and a bridge saddle made from hard bone material.

    The open-pore finish with PUR matt varnish produces a surface that is relatively insensitive to dirt and signs of wear and helps the instrument develop a particularly open and free sound.
