When Richard Foster received his specially built Hanika 58PC he phoned to say “absolutely immaculate … exceeds even my highest expectations … beautifully made … tight grained soundboard … superb finish … intonation spot on … very comfortable in the hands … a very satisfied customer” 2/12/2008
“Just a quick note to say again how delighted I am with my new Hanika 58PC. I have been playing it all day and it’s getting better all the time – or is it me?
As I said on the phone, it’s beautifully made and the finish is faultless. I have already changed the nut, and it works very well for me with my appalling thumb-over technique (I can’t play a D with a bottom F sharp any other way!)
Thanks, too, for including the 2 sets of strings. Can you tell me, for future reference, what make and guage they are?
I have never bought a brand new guitar before, let alone one made to my own specifications. On the label, it says “Spezial”. It is, too!
I will be emailing Armin on his website later to congratulate him on his craftsmanship and his artistry. Many thanks to you too, for making the whole buying process a pleasure. I will recommend you to all my guitar-playing friends.” Richard Foster, 02/12/2008
