Hanika HE Doubletop-N

£4,039.25 incl. VAT where applicable

The Hanika HE Doubletop N combines Doubletop soundboard construction in a guitar made completely from native European woods – a sophisticated tone without an endangered tropical hardwood in sight. Thermo-modification is used extensively and this gives the spruce a slightly more generous tone than usual.
