Back and sides made from maple wood in a high-gloss finish with high-quality spruce soundboard in a silk-matt finish. Our Model 52 AF with its gentle sound is the ideal accompaniment to singing and for chamber-music ensembles – gentle and restrained, on the one hand, while expressive with a full sound and harmonious range of overtones, on the other. Made from solid tonewoods, this guitar comes with high-quality Teflon-mounted ‘Rubner Gold Tuning Machines’ and bushed holes. Other quality features include the neck, made from thermally modified cherry that has been laminated throughout with hardwood, the African blackwood fretboard and bridge saddle made from hard bone material. The asymmetrical HANIKA fan bracing in spruce is responsible for best sound and stability here.
