Nik Huber Dolphin II Translucent White (2014)


"Building guitars with your own hands, as good as possible and beyond, is nothing a career counselor suggests in high-school (at least not a responsible-minded one). Guitar making is more a calling than a profession, but it is not about 'more, more'. Our constant craving is better, better, better."  

Like new 2014 Huber Dolphin II Bolt-Neck just in! 

Like all great builders, Nik manages to straddle the line between a precision build and a soulful guitar brilliantly. There is a warmth and, forgive the term, organic quality to these guitars. The setup and playability are off the charts great - this satin finished neck is simply incredible. Luxurious is the term that came to mind when getting acquainted with this guitar. It's effortless to play and feels really alive in your hands. 

This guitar is extremely resonant, quite loud acoustically, and sustains for days without the aid of amplification. Plugged in? Wow. Punch. Articulation. Power. Like its body shape implies, it hints at Fender and Gibson tones, but a 5-way switch and Haussel-made humbuckers deliver something entirely unique at the same time - this guitar is certainly no clone of either of these iconic brands. Twangy LP tones to out-of-phase Strat tones are possible with the flick of the pickup switch. 

Condition: The only thing keeping this guitar from being indistinguishable from new is some slight tarnishing of the pickup covers, otherwise, it's mint. 

If you're in the market for an exceptional "Tele/Paul" style guitar, or just an exceptional electric guitar, you really owe it to yourself to check out a Huber - you won't be disappointed! Priced with hardshell case.
