NIK HUBER

Nik-Huber-Guitars was founded by Nik Huber in 1996. Since then, the company grew slowly but constantly.
Today a team of 5 highly skilled specialists is building around 120 instruments a year. All hand-crafted.
Since the first attendance at the Frankfurt Musik Messe in 1997, Nik Huber Guitars gained a worldwide reputation as a serious manufacturer of high-class electric-guitars.
In 1999 the expanding company moved to a commercial park in its hometown, Rodgau - 20 km south of Frankfurt/Germany, and resides now in a fully, state-of-the-art equipped workshop.
Nik Huber, founder and managing director of Nik Huber Guitars, carries on a more than 100 year old family tradition. In 1896 a heritage of woodworking expertise was born to proud parent Nikolaus Huber in a small village in Southern Bavaria. Today Nikolaus Huber IV carries that expertise forward in the form of exquisite guitars.
More than a 100 years of gathering knowledge and passing it on from one generation to the next makes a remarkable difference in a fast paced world like today’s. Basically, what we do, is to turn beautiful pieces of wood into excellent guitars.
As easy as it sounds, this process requires not only a reasonable amount of experience. It is also a never ending story of mishaps, dead-end-streets and tiny little pieces of metal that won't fit into their tiny little holes. Generally speaking, building fine instruments can be a very bumpy ride.
On the other hand: this is the fun part, too.
