The bass player of Biffy Clyro has one and so does the guy from the Foo Fighters. A p-pickup underneath a Tbird cover.

Surprisingly, I like it.

One of the two guitarists of the band Definition of Madmen has two Nik Huber guitars. Very good build quality.

Site still can't be reached. I've tried with three different browsers.

Strange, also because Nik Huber sells in the US too. He has a booth at the NAMM every year for years now.

Still won't load. No idea what the problem is.

I see a Nik Huber page at Willcutt Guitars http://willcuttguitars.com/nik-huber-guitars  After seeing the prices, maybe my browser knows I can't afford one.

That could be the case. I wish my whatsapp messenger stopped working after some drinks, so I can't drunk text girls. Having said that, this is day 22 of no alcohol for me.
