The Nik Huber Krautster II Dual Humbucker in our exclusive color:  Surf Green!

The Krautster is a rather interesting instrument.  At least we think so...  As you can tell, it is void of all the adornments you typically see on a guitar of this caliber.  No fancy inlays.  No fancy colored figured wooden tops.  Nothing like that.  Just good tone.

Despite the humble, stripped-down look the guitar portrays to an audience, it still betrays enough conspicuous craftsmanship to treat the eyes, hands and ears of the player who straps it on. The overall look is an understated cool, with its worn, satin-black finish and tastefully cut three-ply pickguard. The Krautster is not exactly "adorned" the way some of Huber's guitars are. Look a little closer, though, and thoughtful details appear. The cream binding matches the cream pickup mounting ring and the expertly cut bone nut, the dot inlays are abalone, and the fretwork is perfect.

Each piece of wood that makes up the guitar is beautiful. The Indian rosewood fretboard is richly hued and the mahogany body slab has a subtle figuring that’s brought out by the open-pore finish. The curly maple neck is simply stunning—like nothing we’ve seen—and is oh-so comfortable despite its thickness (.88" at the first fret and .96" at the 12th) because of its smooth satin finish and low shoulders, almost like the softest V you can imagine. Because of Nik Huber’s sculpted heel joint—an understated but elegant design in itself—access to the upper frets is much easier than anticipated in a body style of this type.
