    Just shaking the trees and see if any cool Hubers fall out. I'll kick it off with a 2003 Orca fatback (LP thickness) using old Korina and the best Brazilian I have ever seen.

    One of the first two Hubers to use Eastern Maple tops... the other is a twin Dolphin that I have never seen. Because Nik put a dolphin on this orca, i always wondered if he put an orca on the twin Dolphin!

    Absolutely gorgeous!

    I haven't had the pleasure of playing a Huber and probably won't. Very happy with what I have. That's just a beautiful piece though! Enjoy!
