What We Think

The craftsmanship and design of this guitar is impeccable. Looking at the front it's a simple, yet beautiful electric guitar in a classic goldtop, but then you turn it over and it absolutely illuminates.  The grain on the body is beautiful, and the flamed neck is unlike anything I have ever seen. Just stunning!  The neck carve cutaway where the neck meets the body is a functionally great spec, making it so easy to play those high notes.  If you can believe it, this guitar sounds even better than it looks!

Call or Email for more info before this mint condition, used Huber goes away. This guitar model is in high demand and not commonly found used, anywhere.

 

Manufacturer's Description from Nik Huber

The Krauster totally nails the sound and sheer power of raw music.  Its design and craftsmanship, meanwhile, demonstrate massive scope and breathtaking ambition.  Disguised as a plain, down to earth guitar, the Krauster comes proudly stripped of everything but the very essence of Rock!
