From our friends at Premier Guitar, check out this video of PG's Shawn Hammond in Rodgau, Germany where Nik Huber gives him a tour of his workshop where he makes some of the best guitars in the world.
Nik Huber, founder and managing director of Nik Huber Guitars, carries on a more than 100 year old family tradition.
In 1896 a heritage of woodworking expertise was born to proud parent Nikolaus Huber in a small village in Southern Bavaria. Today Nikolaus Huber IV carries that expertise forward in the form of exquisite guitars. More than a 100 years of gathering knowledge and passing it on from one generation to the next makes a remarkable difference in a fast paced world like today’s.
Basically, what they do, is to turn beautiful pieces of wood into excellent guitars.
As easy as it sounds, this process requires not only a reasonable amount of experience. It is also a never ending story of mishaps, dead-end-streets and tiny little pieces of metal that won't fit into their tiny little holes. Generally speaking, building fine instruments can be a very bumpy ride. On the other hand: this is the fun part, too. see more
