Always a great day when a Huber arrives at the shop! This gently used 2019 Orca '59 is a great representation of Nik and his talented team are capable of.
Strum your first chord...Alive, resonant, loud (this is acoustically, btw). The top's semi-gloss finish and "barely there" finish on the back of both the body and neck feels amazing. We hate using the term organic to describe guitars, but in this instance it's really fitting. It's an easy guitar to connect with this guitar due to this style of finish. The neck carve is fat but extremely well shaped - it never feels overbearing or fatiguing. The playability, fretwork, and feel is exceptional.
Plugged in think Les Paul meets Strat (yes, we're serious). The 25" scale adds some beautiful snap and clarity to the traditional Les Paul punch and heft that's also present in this guitar. Add the humbucker coil tap to the mix, and some surprisingly Strat-like tones start to surface. This guitar won't replace your Strat by any means, but you've got a wealth of very usable tones at your disposal, not just Les Paul tones.
Condition: Near mint. Very light play wear throughout.
All in all, an incredibly brilliant guitar that's definitely worth serious consideration!
