It's all about the Blue Whale!
It's no coincidence that this extraordinary Nik Huber guitar shares its name with the giant of the oceans. In cooperation with whale researcher Richard Sears, our friends at Nik Huber guitars offer this stunning piece of guitar art in a 25 piece limited edition.
The profit from this special edition Blue Whale will support Sears' Mingan Island Cetacean Study's research devoted to the conservation of this most impressive but endangered whale species.
