It takes skill, boldness and agility to catch the wave of your dreams. It takes a real “surf-master”.
The Nik Huber Surfmeister – built in the well-known and always dependable Nik Huber quality – comes equipped with a huge California heart. Its tone is courtesy of Tronebucker pickups, as tempting and clear as the Pacific on a bright summer morning. With a Bigsby, your sound takes an additional shimmer like a spindrift on cresting waves. Be ready, before the next big one surges over on the horizon!
Nik-Huber-Guitars was founded by Nik Huber in 1996. Since then, the company grew slowly but constantly. Today a team of 8 highly skilled specialists is building around 240 instruments a year. All hand-crafted. Since the first attendance at the Frankfurt Musik Messe in 1997, Nik Huber Guitars gained a worldwide reputation as a serious manufacturer of high-class electric-guitars. In 1999 the expanding company moved to a commercial park in its hometown, Rodgau – 20 km south of Frankfurt/Germany, and resides now in a fully, state-of-the-art equipped workshop.
Nik Huber, founder and managing director of Nik Huber Guitars, carries on a more than 100 year old family tradition. In 1896 a heritage of woodworking expertise was born to proud parent Nikolaus Huber in a small village in Southern Bavaria. Today Nikolaus Huber IV carries that expertise forward in the form of exquisite guitars. More than a 100 years of gathering knowledge and passing it on from one generation to the next makes a remarkable difference in a fast paced world like today’s.
