    cool huber Poe..what color you going with?

    for some reason i always loved "loud" colors when bigsby's
    where concerned..quess it's the whole 50's Gretsch/Setzer vibe...

    Exactly....I love the Gretsch look...but despise the guitars.

    The guitar will be white with gold hardware.

    That should be beautiful. Best of luck with it. Gold Bigbsby on
    white, now thats class. Now the hard part, the waiting time.....

    I'm currently waiting on 2 Soloways and a Gustavsson, but it's
    all well worth it in the end.

    I've heard great things about Nik's guitars but have never had
    the opportunity to play one. Any insight would be greatly
    appreciated.

    Just took delivery of my Huber Dolphin-through Synergy Guitars. I think I may have finally found the guitar I have been looking for. I play surf rock with about as much reverb as I can muster and the tone is absolutely unbelievable. I have 24 other high-end guitars and this baby goes directly to the head of the class. To say I'm pleased is a real understatement.
    By the by, Robert, at Synergy, is great to deal with and takes care of business.
    Mine is the Dolphin black\grey triple.

    That would be Museum Poe. Very cool Huber I like Bigsbys and that will be very cool when it's finished.

    The Bigsby Dolphin could look like the sketch I did for Nik a couple of months ago for my own project:

    Now it´s going more in the direction of the lower picture. The dolphin shaped soundholes were simply too much...!:rolleyes:

    This is going to be the first real Huber hollowbody. The soundhole will be different though. The idea was just to find a convenient position on the top. Needless to say, I´m excited...
