The guitarist and composer Michael Wenzel alias 'Mike O'Hardy' is a friend of Hanika guitars for 15 years now. Besides his Hanika 'Ohardy' Cut Custom for his new pieces of his 'Meer Picking'-Edition, we built a personal Doubletop Custom guitar for him.
His special guitar is provided with a 630mm Scale length, 50mm neck width, side dots at the 12th fret and an arabesque Inlay on the fingerboard. The wonderful visual appearance gets underlined by a special soundhole rosette and exclusive Alessi Cocobolo tuning machines.
While on his 40 releases mostly a Hanika Grand Concert and since 2011 diverse Hanika Lattice guitars were used, on his new 'Meer Picking'-Album the Hanika Doubltop Custom presents itself in the best light. Mike's concern to compose guitar music which is easily hear- and playable but also is ambitious was supported through the long lasting tone and the softness of the Doubletop guitar and shows again the importance of the instrument to get the desired sound.
There is a lot to see and hear on his Youtube-Channel by the way!
