We want our OPTIONS to satisfy all your wishes

This is where you'll find a range of available options and their descriptions for all HANIKA guitars.

SCALE OPTIONS

The scale describes the theoretical length of freely resonating string. Scale compensation will cause the length between the strings resting at the bridge and resting at the nut to deviate slightly from the scale. This means that the scale determines the length of the neck from the 12th fret to the head and therefore also the spaces between the individual frets.

NECK PROFILE

The neck profile is often decisive to playability and the feel of the instrument. The C-profile with its different gradations is suitable for smaller hands. The D-profile provides a little more space for gripping and has been worked slightly more over its gradation.

FRETBOARD WIDTH

We are able to provide a selection of fretboard widths ranging from 46 to 54 millimetres to as far as possible satisfy the requirements of all players, different hand sizes and playing styles. This size refers to the width of the fretboard at the nut / at the top end of the fretboard.

FRETBOARD CURVATURE

Players who are also accustomed to western and electric guitars sometimes experience difficulties when switching from curved fretboards to flat ones. Our option with a slightly curved fretboard provides a compromise in this regard.

LEFT-HANDED VERSIONS

This option is for creating instruments that are in all ways correct for left-handed people who hold their guitars in the reverse position.

SOUNDBOARD BRACING

We have developed and optimised the for us most appropriate concepts from the wealth of existing soundboard designs and bracing systems that affect the sound of an instrument. This overview shows the bracing systems that we use.
