Nik Huber Orca '59 - Faded Sunburst
The Orca '59 looks, plays, feel and sounds like one of those legendary instruments of the '50s. But unlike its predecessors, its magic and authenticity unfold from day one. Both body and soul have been revived by the experience and knowledge of the proud Huber craftsmen, who've raised the bar with respect to how a classic guitar should look and sound; you won't have to wait thirty years for this one to become a legend!
This guitar is Nik's interpretation of the Classic late 50's Les Paul Standard. The finish is a semi-gloss, nitro faded sunburst and it feels as great as it looks. I can attest that this guitar sounds and feels like the best 'Bursts I have had the privelege to play over the years.
This particular Orca '59 was one of the amazing showpieces from the 2012 MTL guitar Show.
