A Rick Hanes guitar, manufactured in Sidoarjo, East Java, has been crowned as Guitar of the Year 2012 by English guitar-review website guitar-planet.co.uk. The winning guitar beat brands such as Gibson and Fender to the top spot. Rick Hanes produces only 100 guitars a month and charge up to Rp 25 million per instrument. Photos and text JG/Arief Priyono.
