Maybe you haven’t heard of Hohner as of yet, which I wouldn’t blame you for, it’s not easy to gain recognition amidst a competitive market dominated by gigantic names. Hohner are a musical instrument manufacturer originally founded in Europe, and they have a tradition of quality lasting over a century. The HC06 is their take on a beginner’s acoustic guitar, or “classical” to be more specific.
This instrument instantly lets off a sweet classic vibe, whether you’re merely examining it or playing through its nylon strings. It is built of hi-quality woods mixture and it’s really got all the attributes of “Hohner A+” advantage (an accepted standard for all of Hohner’s student instruments, improving a variety of details exhibited by the git’s performance) as the manufacturers claim themselves.
Body & Neck
The instrument’s body is made up of a spruce top and catalpa sides and back with a natural high gloss finish. The size and shape allow for playing comfort and ease of access to its neck and upper frets.
The neck is made of mahogany on a scale of 25 ½ inches. The hardwood rosewood fingerboard attached to the neck hosts 18.5 frets (weird, I know, but not necessarily bad), the body and neck are conjoined at the 12th fret.
The hardware truly highlights the manufacturers’ attention to detail in their student instruments, ensuring quality and a positive learning experience unmatched on the beginner market. The magnificent string stability and intonation is brought to you by the git’s featured 3-in-1 type chrome plated tuning machines laying on its headstock and the rosewood bridge system.
The guitar’s construction sports an excellent string action at an optimal level, minimizing fret buzz while enhancing playability, said playability is furthermore improved up by its light gauge nylon strings, which enable easy and intuitive fingerpicking.
The tuners are of excellent quality and the bridge ensures a solid string vibration transfer resulting in magnificent sustain and lush tones. While we are at the tones, there’s nothing this gitbox can’t do that other classical instruments can. The HC06 upholds the values of proper acoustic warm and mellow tones, serving as an epitome of quality in its price range.
This excellent work of art by Hohner is a must-have for anyone starting out and learning to play, it is specifically built for students and it aids greatly in the improvement process. If you want a guitar that your teacher himself would recommend, then look no further.
