Featherweight – Only 7.4lbs (solid)!
Incredible Tone and Playability - Feels alive in your hands!
This beautiful Orca ‘59 from Nik Huber Guitars was on display at the NAMM Show and features an absolutely breathtaking Flame Maple top. But she’s not just a looker – This baby has it all! Incredible tone, perfect playability, and weighs in at only 7.4 lbs! It's nice to take a classic, Les Paul style design like this and make it unique. All Nik Huber guitars are hand-tuned for tone and this one sounds exactly like you would expect (unless you haven't experienced the awesomeness that is a Nik Huber instrument, in which case it sounds significantly better than you could ever imagine). Resonant and alive feeling. Just outstanding tone. Slightly more articulate than a vintage Les Paul. The body is solid Spanish Cedar (which is sonically more similar to the actual old growth Mahogany used on all those iconic 50’s instruments but is all but extinct these days) and the neck is Mahogany with a Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard.
Nik Huber is making some of the most consistently fantastic instruments I have been lucky enough to have for sale through my shop. Every time I get one in, the entire staff is floored by its magnificence. The tone is always astonishingly loud, clear and bell-like acoustically. It resonates in your hands like a living, breathing creature. Cosmetically every detail is perfect. From the fit and finish to the fret work to the incredible wood selection. Nik never disappoints. This Custom Orca ‘59 is no exception! Stunning in every way!
The Nik Huber Orca has to be one of the absolute best sounding guitar models we have ever had. (I say that about a lot of Huber models but it's true each time). This is also one of the absolute most fun to play! The Harry Hausel pickups sound killer and this one sports a classic, 1959 - SET. You don't even need to plug this guitar in to know it will sound like god. Want clean? Just roll back on the volume. Want gain? Roll up. The neck is expertly crafted - Just fat enough to be fat, but refined - Not so huge that it feels cumbersome or bloated. Basically, it feels like it was carved special just for your hands. This guitar also sports a rich, dark Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard.
