Welcome Nik Huber Guitars!
Today is a good day!
After a few years of discussions (since Nik and I first met at the Santa Barbara guitar show back in 2016), we are incredibly excited to announce Nik Huber Guitars are joining The North American Guitar's electric luthier roster.
Yippe I hear you cry! Well us too!
Not only are Nik and his entire team wonderful people but they make out of this world instruments and we could not be happier to welcome them to the TNAG family. With a reputation for being one of the worlds most highly respected luthiers and also a founding members of the EGB (European Guitar Builders Association), along with fellow TNAG luthiers Michael Spalt, Juha Roukangas, Frank Deimel and Ulrich Teuffel, both Nik, Clemens and I all felt the time was right to join forces and officially offer Nik Huber Guitars to you, our (wonderful) TNAG customers.
Over the years, Nik Huber Guitars (and his reputation) has grown like a rocket ship into one of the leading boutique guitar makers in the world; offering a phenomenal range of instruments to fit the tonal and dynamic requirements for every player out there. Besides the visual components and the build quality, Nik Huber Guitars are always looking to improve the construction of the electric guitar and only use the best components available on the market to supply customers with an instrument for life!
A little bit about Nik Huber:
So Nik and his company carry more than a 100 year old family tradition of woodworking. Born to proud parent Nikolaus Huber in a small village in Southern Bavaria, Nik was set to follow as a cabinet maker like his father, however, something happened along the way...he got bitten by the guitar! After being disappointed with the build quality of Nik's first guitar, his father Nikolaus, decided he could do a better job and crafted Nik his second guitar...and there the obsession began! After finishing school Nik followed in the footsteps of his family and learned cabinet making because he wanted to become an architect. During this time, he found out about a guitar making school on Formentera (Formentera Guitars, Spain) and the rest, as they say, is history!
Nik-Huber-Guitars was founded by Nik Huber in 1996. Since then, the company grew slowly but constantly. Today, Nik and his team of seven highly skilled employees do build around 250 guitars a year.
"Basically, what we 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 but is also is 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...." Nik Huber - Nik Huber Guitars
