This is our second Orca '59 from Nik Huber Guitars, handbuilt in Germany by Nik and his incredible team with stunning attention to detail in every aspect of the build. 
Our first Orca received a standout review with, and had us floored from the first time we flipped the latches. So naturally we leapt at the opportunity to bring another in, and once again we're blown away by the craftsmanship and musicality of the instrument, especially given the range up upgraded features adorning it!  
This particular example is built in Spanish Cedar for the body with an upgraded Exceptional Eastern Flame Maple top, capturing much of the resonance and sustain we associate with the iconic 50s singlecut we all know and love whilst retaining a voice and feel that is so distinctly Huber. 
The neck is made up out of Mahogany and for the fingerboard a stunning piece of Brazilian Rosewood with the profile conforming to Nik's exceptionally comfortable standard carve, with enough heft to enhance the sustain of the instrument while remaining versatile and fast all the way through to the upper registers.
As always, the Haussel 1959 pickup set in the guitar make it a true joy to use in a huge range of playing styles, with everything from smooth, fat cleans through to cranked up lead tones that will cut through any mix. The coil split capabilities add to this versatility making for a versatile instrument ideal for stage or studio. 
The specially ordered full body sunburst tops it all off, bringing out the most in the beautiful tone woods and completing the timeless feel of the guitar.
