OUR MATERIALs and Craft...
Concept & Design
HAPAS guitars are especially designed for extended range instruments. Other than just starting with a standard 6 string design and adding just another string to that, we designed all our shapes with more strings and longer scales in mind.
The scarf jointed head is a striking HAPAS feature. It allows us to get a head angle of 12°, which is more than usual guitars have. It not only allows more pressure on the nut, which results in a better tonal transmission. It´s also more stable, because of the straight running grain in the head.
Over 95% of our wood, is bought directly. This means no online blind/bulk ordering. We have a very good wood supplier in town and we check and select every single piece before buying.
This is a very time consuming process, but it gives us the total control over the quality of the most important material in your HAPAS guitar. The wood.
If you buy a HAPAS guitar, you can be sure that everything is designed with a special sound in mind. We aim for the perfect metal guitar and want it to be right in every possible detail. Since pickups are the converter from an acoustic to electric „tone“, they have a very important role in the guitar.
By designing and winding our own pickups, we can ensure that our philosophy of tone and quality is secured in this important part of the guitar aswell and makes a perfect match with the instrument.
The Hardware is one of the crucial parts we get from other companys. You will see our guitars with the best Hardware only. We use Hipshot locking tuners on all guitars with a Hipshot fixed bridge or Evertune bridge.
If you get yourself a TURANDOT headless, it will be equipped with all ABM hardware, 100% made in Berlin Germany.
