Back and sides made from highest-quality east Indian rosewood with a soundboard made from outstanding cedar wood. Rosewood is considered to be one of the best tonewoods for guitars and in conjunction with the thin cedar-wood soundboard, the 58 PC achieves a very good attack with a full sound and a crisp tone. Attack and sustain on this guitar are well balanced with each other. This means that it responds well to a variety of playing styles.
The HANIKA ‘NATURAL’ finish is a special feature on this guitar. This very thin varnish / wax sealing makes the finish less sensitive to the stresses that typically occur when the instrument is played. The thin sealing helps produce a particularly open and transparent sound.
Made from highest-quality solid tonewoods, this guitar comes with a flat soundboard with asymmetrical fivefold fan bracing. The gold-coloured bushed ‘Rubner R2-E’ tuning machines with ebony pegs and engraved edging, the cedro neck laminated throughout with the best ebony, the high-quality ebony fretboard and the rosewood head plate with cherry-wood inlay underline the 58 PC NATURAL's high quality.
