I offer here a Hanika 56PF Custom Cocobolo Moon Spruce from 2009, an all solid custom classical guitar based on the Hanika 56PF from the German noble concert guitar forge of Armin Hanika with selected moon phase spruce top over an asymmetrical 5-fan bracing, back and sides made of spectacularly figured cocobolo, set ebony-reinforced cedro neck with D-1 neck profile and 52mm bone nut, high-quality ebony fingerboard, gold Rubner HE tuners with pearloid buttons and cedro headstock with rosewood/maple veneer on both sides in a beautiful natural matte (top) / natural high gloss (body) finish with matching cocobolo rosette and multi-ply rosewood/maple bindings in mint condition incl. high-quality carbon luxury hardshell case and professional setup with Savarez 500ARJ strings.

This Hanika 56PF Custom Cocobolo Spruce is an absolutely masterfully crafted instrument from the Hanika Custom Shop, which builds special custom-made instruments at Hanika and stands for the most sophisticated combination of appearance and lightness of sound using the most exquisite tonewoods.

The thin top of the classical guitar is made from selected Swiss moon phase spruce wood, which is felled specifically in winter when the moon is at a certain position, and reveals an extremely resonant sound behavior with impressive volume on the 5-fan bracing. The back and sides are made from cocobolo, a tonewood that is characterized by a particularly dense wood structure and is considered one of the best tonewoods for guitars. This gives the guitar a very good attack with a full sound and a sharp tone that meets the highest demands.

The ebony-reinforced cedro neck, the durable ebony fingerboard, the 12-hole rosewood bridge and the cedro headstock covered with two layers of rosewood/maple veneer are evidence of the masterful craftsmanship and attention to detail.

A 52mm bone nut also offers clean intonation and the D1 neck profile provides a smooth playability.

Visually, the natural high-gloss finish successfully brings out the wild grain of the cocobolo tonewood, and visual details such as the cocobolo rosette and the golden Rubner RE tuners lend the guitar aesthetic perfection.

As a custom-made instrument, this model is unique. Hanika concert guitars with a cocobolo body are otherwise only built into upper-class models and start at new prices from €2,499 (Hanika 58CF, Musicstore).

The Hanika is in mint condition and is technically flawless. Visually without any visible wear (see pictures). The neck is straight and the frets are like new.

I have set up the guitar with Savarez 500ARJ strings (I have been a guitar teacher for many years) and will ship fully insured with DHL for 29.99€ within Germany or for 69.99€ within the EU. Shipping outside the EU possible - individual shipping costs on request.

Please check all photos & clarify questions with me before buying. Thank you! :)
