What We Think

Check out the flamed maple top, headstock veneer, and back of the neck! Stunning and even. It's what dreams are made of! It's harder and harder these days to come across flamed maple tops that have even grain on both sides. And how about that finish? You don't see this hue of shimmery grey on your average guitar! This is a one-of-a-kind, custom spec Orca, from one of the best in the business.

fast fretboard, plenty of tonal option, and available at a price so far from it's new counterpart, you'd think there's a problem! There isn't. We just have a consignment customer who's looking to change things up in his collection.

Manufacturer's Description from Nik Huber

A legend in and of itself, the Nik Huber

Orca looks familiar to guitar players

around the world by virtue of its shape.

Paying tribute to the first solidbody of

this kind, the Nik Huber Orca brings a new

twist to the traditional form with a slightly

thinner body and a longer scale.

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.
