Nik Huber Piet review

Nik Huber’s latest solidbody is inspired by the offset fashion and named after his youngest son. The result is very classy

Guitar World Verdict

While it might fall into the low tier of Huber instruments, it’s far from a cheap date. But then there is nothing cheap about this guitar, either in terms of build or the hugely evocative, characterful sounds we hear.


  • +

    Detailed build.

  • +

    High-level wood, hardware and pickups.

  • +

    Diverse inspirations at play here.


  • -

    The response of the offset-style vibrato won’t suit everyone. It’s a serious investment.

We’ve never played a Nik Huber guitar that’s been anything other than spectacular. But within its surprisingly expansive range, there’s a duality that not every maker can match. 

Nik seems equally at home with the ‘posh’ PRS-inspired aesthetic epitomised by the Dolphin and the blingier Orca models as he is with frankly superb rock ’n’ roll guitars such as the Krautster. The new Piet, which we first saw at this year’s NAMM Show in January, definitely drops into that latter style.
