2019 Nik Huber Krautster II

German guitar builder Nik Huber has been hand-crafting luxury-level solidbody electrics for the better part of 25 years. His instruments marry exotic design and the finest woods and hardware, and are among the most precisely made electrics available.

The Krautster II is a single-cut slab solid body that draws inspiration from both the 1950’s single cut Les Paul Special and the Standards of the late 1950s. It features bookmatched lightweight Spanish cedar body and set-in figured maple neck with Indian rosewood fretboard. The neck has a late ’50s inspired fat/round carve with a 1-5/8” nutwidth and a depth of .93” at the 1st fret and 1.0” at the 12th. Scale is 25” and the fretboard radius is compound. It’s an incredibly light guitar, especially considering it’s fat neck carve and full thickness mahogany body, and tips the scales at 5-3/4 lbs.

The pickups are custom-made for Nik Huber guitars; the neck P90 measures 7.4k and the bridge humbucker measures 15.6k and coil-tapped switching offers a 7.9k single-coil option. The bridge is a Huber designed adjustable stop-tail made of aluminum and aged to match the humbucker pickup cover. The tuners are Huber-branded Schaller Grandtune open geared machines with vintage style tulip buttons.

The guitar is in near-new condition and shows no playwear to its frets. Set up is perfect, and playability is perfection.

With original hardshell case, COA, and all case accoutrements.
