Neal Beedie November 18, 2013 2

Nik Huber Guitars was founded in Germany by Nik Huber in 1996.  The company is widely renowned for its high-quality electric guitars and currently produces around 120 hand-crafted guitars per year.  These are seriously high-class guitars with a price-tag to match!

Nik Huber currently produces eight different electric guitars (not including limited edition models), all of which can be ordered left handed at no extra charge.  Each guitar has a variety of different configurable options and upgrades.  We’ve shown a few of the base-specs below, but be sure to check the company website for more detailed information.

Let’s take a look at the left handed guitars from this boutique German brand…

Nik Huber Website

The Nik Huber website has a very simple, but elegant feel to it and features some great images showing off each guitar. Importantly for us southpaws there is a section early on in the FAQ page which lets us know that all models are available left handed at no extra charge.

    Woah the second one looks like a nice mix of a Les Paul and PRS, what with it's bird(?) inlays.. :)

      The image is a little small to see but those are actually the optional killer whale inlays, hence the name Orca. The Dolphin model above has an option of dolphin inlays too.
