We have commissioned 10 very special Guitars to celebrate our 10th Anniversary together. In conjunction with Nik we specced up one of our favourite models, the Orca, and added some of the most desirable features including an exceptional figured Maple top, matching Flame Maple neck and headstock facing and a super dark Indian Rosewood board. All the woods were hand-picked by Nik. Has the super light bridge and Aluminium stop tail and custom-wound pickups from Haussel.
As always, incredible, awesome quality from Nik. You cannot make a better quality guitar!

Nik says- A legend in and of itself, the Orca looks familiar to guitar players around the world by virtue of its shape. Paying tribute to the first solid body of this kind, the Orca brings a new twist to the traditional form with a slightly thinner body and a longer scale.
The classic combination of tonewoods and traditional method of construction make this guitar spring to life out of the fascinating merger between vintage values and modern-day quality.
Nik-Huber-Guitars was founded by Nik Huber in 1996. Since then, the company grew slowly but constantly. Today a team of 5 highly skilled specialists is building around 120 instruments a year. All hand-crafted.
Since the first attendance at the Frankfurt Musik Messe in 1997, Nik Huber Guitars gained a worldwide reputation as a serious manufacturer of high-class electric-guitars.
In 1999 the expanding company moved to a commercial park in its hometown, Rodgau – 20 km south of Frankfurt/Germany, and resides now in a fully, state-of-the-art equipped workshop.
