    I got this beauty some time ago.
    Now I have two dolphins and two Orcas.
    I simply love this guitar.It's amazingly light(I guess it's around 7lbs solidbody).The woods are really incredible:amazing flamed maple top finished in a doublestain amberburst,incredible figured mahognay back and neck and a wild ebony freboard.
    It's really an impressive guitar, probably one of the best three guitars that I've played or owned.

    You have excellent taste, this is amazing.
    I would be worried to take such a guitar out to play..

    Yessir, Nik is a fine craftsman. Congratulation on the new guitar. She's a beauty.

    I might need a few more neck pics just to get properly despondent over the fact that it isn't mine.

    Awsome. See, I knew I was right :D
    How do you like the Orca's vs. the Dolphin's?
    I was looking to get a Dolphin for a while, just to fill the void for a JGG while I patiently sit back and wait for one to become available, but didn't end up pulling the trigger, 'cause I realized I'd need the $$$ when the JG does become available. I'd still like to get one, though!
    Got any pics of all four together? (or is it five w/ the goldtop?) I'd love to see a group shot!

    Just curious was this the beauty that Willcutt's had on their website? I almost wanted to take a trip to their shop to check it out.

    I'll do a group shot tomorrow...
    Orca vs Dolphin....well all my Hubers are really different one from each other.Generally,I think that both are really great guitars and pretty different.I find the Dolphins to be a little more articulated and defined(probably due to the longer scale).I really prefer them in clean tones,both full and splitted humbuckers, over the Orcas.
    The Orcas have more sustain(the two that I have are really incredible for how long the notes sing),I much prefer the neck pickups sound on the Orcas(probably for the shorter scale) which is more similar to a lester neck tone,but more articulated and never muddy.
    Both are super easy to play.I find both really confortable and with a great access to the higher frets.
    I really think that you can't go wrong with Nik's guitars.
