We Build Guitars
“Supreme craftmanship is not enough to make a Hansen Guitar. You also need a touch of madness “
Hansen Guitars are made in a small workshop, where the smell of wood and nitrocellulose lacquer lingers in the air.
“This is where the magic happens”
Every instrument is built completely from scratch. From a block of wood to finished rock axe.
Each instrument is handcrafted from start to finish in Hansens modest workshop. No assembly line, no computer control. Henning Hansens call is to create instruments that possess the heart and soul, of genuine vintage instruments. He builds guitars, as they use to do when rock was still young.
What gives an instrument mojo? Is it the wood? A worn look? Age? Is it the guitarist? With a Hansen guitar you will get what you expect from a new instrument but with the vintage look and feel. In other words a new instrument with lots of mojo.
What we strive for with the relic job, is not tricking someone into believing, that the instrument is old. It’s about the feeling. If it feels right, it is right.
All Hansen instruments come with hand-built pickups, developed and made by Hansen. The philosophy behind the sound of the pickups is the legendary vintage tone with lots of nerve and bite, which characterized the rock music in the early 1970s.
Pickups are also sold as replacement pickups for your Hansen T or S styled guitars.
The sound is crisp and vibrant, as one would expect from an expensive vintage instrument. This is partly due to the fact that Hansen uses only high-quality wood which has been stored for at least ten years.
