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. The Orca ´59 looks, plays, feels and sounds like one of those legendary instruments of the 50’s. But unlike most of it‘s predecessors, its magic and authenticity unfold from day one. Both body and soul have been revived by the experience and knowledge of our proud craftsmen, who‘ve raised the bar with respect to how a classic guitar should sound and look. You won’t have to wait fifty years for this one to become a legend!
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.
