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.

Build time depends on model and elected options.
Back and sides made from high-quality east Indian rosewood with a soundboard made from outstanding cedar wood. Rosewood is considered to be one of the most universal tonewoods for guitars and in conjunction with the thin cedar-wood soundboard, the Natural PC achieves a very good attack with a full sound and crisp tone. Attack and sustain on this guitar are well balanced with each other. This means that it responds well to many styles of playing.
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 select solid tonewoods, this guitar comes with a flat soundboard with asymmetrical fivefold fan bracing The gold-coloured bushed tuning machines with ebony pegs, the cedro neck laminated throughout with the best hardwood, the high-quality African blackwood fretboard and triple-layer rosewood-maple-rosewood head plate underline the Natural PC's high quality.
