Ahh okay! ThankyouPat Dodson wrote:Since the forum was migrated to a new server there have been problems with the search function. The way around it is to search for Delcamp Hanika 54pf at the big search engine in the sky. That brings up several results of references in threads here.
Ahh wonderful, The fat neck doesn't bother me, the current CG I play and have owned for around 4 years now cost me £60 brand new... So I'm sure this one will be much better!Gorn wrote:I own a custom-made Hanika and have tried a couple of them, but mainly higher priced models (58 and up). They're perfectly made, great tone, great response, you can't go wrong with a Hanika. The Thømann shop lists a PF 54 for EUR 1.099,-- which I think is absolutely appropriate.
The only thing that might disturb you: "Lower priced" Hanikas tend to have fat necks. The picture at T.... shows a D-shaped neck and I think it is also thickness D (not D minus one or D minus two), see: http://www.hanika.de/de/optionen/halspr ... etail.html
If it's important for you, you can ask your dealer or Armin Hanika himself to be sure about it.
@ Michael N.: There's nothing wrong with the tie block - it works, it's easy to handle, no problems.
Funny you're mentioning that. Short time ago, there was a thread "Hacking a Hanika" viewtopic.php?f=11&t=108150 and I will go to "my" luthier-and-shop-around-the-corner on wednesday to have my neck reshaped from D-1 to C-1 (I hope she'll get it down even to something between D&C -1.5, I'll see...) and it will be refinished from PU varnish to wax.cgscott wrote: Is it possible to get some material taken from the neck by a luthier if it bothers me?
