ARCHIVE Flamenco KF
HANIKA's FLAMENCO KF is a guitar that has been optimised for playing flamenco in every way. Back and sides are made from the European cherry and the soundboard from outstanding spruce. This lightweight and thin guitar has been designed very much with attack in mind. Its defined bass makes it stand out brilliantly and makes it ideal for very expressive styles of playing. The by two centimetres smaller side height minimises the low-frequency bass range. In conjunction with the soundboard's doming, this guitar develops great efficiency along with a crisp and highly expressive sound.
Another feature of the Professional Line FLAMENCO KF is the inverted flamenco bridge that has been made from top-grade Indian rosewood. This special lightweight design improves the transfer of resonance to the soundboard.
Made from best solid tonewoods, this flamenco guitar that comes with an asymmetrically weighted domed soundboard with sevenfold fan bracing has been designed with flamenco in mind. The black bronzed bearing-mounted and bushed ‘Rubner R2-SE’ tuning machines with engraved edgings, the cedro neck reinforced with finest hardwood, the fretboard made from select ebony along with the solid rosewood head plate in the flamenco design are just a few of the quality highlights that the FLAMENCO KF brings to the show. The body has been sealed with a UV-curing high-gloss acrylic varnish and the soundboard has been elaborately hand-polished with shellac. A full pick-guard (Golpeador) is standard here.
