Apparently the theme is a hot ticket - as demonstrated by the replies on another (edited) post.
A guy in Germany - who I hope will contribute his 2 euro's worth of commentary - asked Nik to play the "T" shape a bit further.
These are some of the pics of that fonky idea, enjoy 'em!

OK, so i'm repeating myself, but that thing it off the charts!

Not inentionally trying to get flamed but put a trem on it, a bridge humbucker, and it's pretty clodse to my perfect guitar.

Love that neck! :dude

Wow, that neck is beautiful.
Looks like a very well made guitar, a few personal tweaks and that could be my ultimate guitar too. ;)

Very impressive....he just needs to cut some of the lip away on the ashtray. Is that a 3-way switch or a 5-way? I think he is on to a winner!

You could put anything on that guitar.
Matter of fact my own personal ticket would be a bridge single "harrybarden" (Harry Häussel is finally finishing the testing on his dual blade puppies!!) and a neck P90 in hb format or maybe one of his Alnico II VIN puppies.
And yes I'd take a trem, too.
And I'd probably do it in candy apple red as well.

HEY! Hold it!
What have you started!? I don't need another Huber... I don't...need...another...Huber...I don't..
Sh*t! I had almost kicked the habit!!!
It's all your fault, and you guys know it :BITCH

(just kidding, of course)

JJ

P.s. If you happen to be in Indy, Nik's over at booth 2713. Your chance to get your hands around a Huber neck...

So, did you call Nik yet? Go on, get it. Just so you can post pictures of it and piss us off ;)

Nik's work continues to blow me away. 2 Dolphins sit in a gigbag at my door for tonight's gig.
I have played Hubers exclusively for 1.5 years now. I've got 4 Dolphins with another custom coming next week and another 2 after I get the spec's worked out.
I haven't found/played another guitar at any price that suits me better.
His neck joint is the most comfortable non intrusive I've encountered in 25+ years of playing. Absolutely perfect, you'll run out of frets before you even feel the joint.

Plus he's the coolest cat and loves what he does :dude

Just for the record, the grey Telephin guitar belongs toand was conceived by a german guy called Karsten Nierhaus (sick puppy, ain't he ;) ?), and he arranged for the pics to be taken.
IIRC the pics were taken by Thomas Hesselbarth, another huberite, photographer, web designer, who also happens to live close to Nik's workshop - darn lucky guy, if I might add! :) :)

Wow !! Beautiful workmanship.
You know that recessed control plate & neck plate are small things that really stand out big time.
Beautiful

Yup... did you notice the fretboard edges?
The frets are inlaid so the fretboard isn't cut on the edges... IMO helps to achieve better neck resonance (but the experts may prove me wrong).

It sure helps with feel, playability and looks so damned good!

<quick detour>

I need the 5 way footswitch for the Rivera M60 (yup I have the same exact amp - I love it!). Can you find me one, pls? Rivera parts are almost impossible to locate over here.

<detour over>

Thank you!

I played one of Nik`s guitars at he London guitar show 3 years ago and had a short conversation with him. Great guy and great guitars.
It was my frustration at being unable to afford one that was part of my inspiration to start making my own guitars. I`ve just finished no2 with 3 about to start.
Not reached his level yet but I`m aiming high.
