Nik Huber Releases Krautster II

Huber adds a second pickup and tone control to his Krautster model

Germany (September 6, 2010) -- German luthier Nik Huber has introduced the follow-up to his successful Krautster model, the Krautster II. The new model has many of the same features as the original--mahogany body, glued-in maple neck, rosewood fretboard, wraparound bridge, and splittable Häussel humbucker at the bridge--but adds a P-90 soapbar pickup in the neck position. With the additional pickup comes an additional tone pot and three-way toggle switch. The Krauster II comes in Onyx Black, Gold Top, Copper Top (pictured), and Vintage White. MSRP € 2190 (approximately $2823), including case.

It’s ok for a guitar to not sound like a guitar.

As much as we all love juicy, organic guitar tones, it can be just as inspiring to go the opposite way. Combining various modulation effects, envelope filters, oscillators, and more can result in sounds that owe more to Kraftwerk than Led Zeppelin.
