Now Shipping to the USA
We have overcome all the problems of the Lacey Act and are now successfully selling Hanika guitars - both custom and standard models - to the US.
You can see the full Hanika range here.
Customised Classical and Flamenco Guitars
Standard classical and flamenco guitars do not suit everyone's needs and for that reason renowned makers offer a range of custom build options. Alternative scale length, finish, neck profiles, fret materials, pickups and pickguards; these and more are all available. Prices are surprisingly reasonable.
You can find out more about the customisation options available from Hanika here. Please phone to talk through which of the various options available may suit you best.
