Nik Huber is definitely one of the top luthiers of our time. His creations not only look incredible, but sound and play amazing. If you have ever put your hands on one, you know what I'm talking about.
This one is a great example of Nik's work in excellent condition: a standard Krautster II with great Haussel pickups, that chunky deep Nik Huber neck profile that makes you feel at home whether you like big necks or not, and tones to die for. The neck P90 and bridge humbucker with coil splitting gives you 5 tonal options at your fingertips. Anything from a Gilmouesque neck P90 to a Tele-like coil split center position and a killer rock humbucker at the bridge, this could be the only axe to bring to your next gig.
Here is the info from Nik Huber's website:
The Krautster totally nails the sound and sheer power of raw music. Its design and craftmanship, meanwhile, demonstrate massive scope and breath-taking ambition. Disguised as a plain, down-to-earth guitar, the Krautster comes proudly stripped of almost everything but the very essence of Rock! The P90 neck pickup delivers a touch of flexibility and a bluesy voice that‘s all your own.
