Nik Huber Guitars Receives Premier Guitar’s Premier Gear Award
Germany-based guitar manufacturer receives Premier Gear Award for the Krautster
The Premier Gear Award is an honor bestowed upon a piece of gear—whether guitar, amp, effect, or other gear— that has been extraordinary enough to impress the staff of Premier Guitar. Despite the high quality of all gear reviewed by Premier Guitar, only exemplary items earn the award.
“It’s simplest to say that Huber’s intention to disguise the Krautster as a purely plain and practical guitar hasn’t entirely succeeded,” says reviewer Chris Burgess. “because despite the humble, stripped-down look the guitar portrays to an audience, it still betrays enough conspicuous craftsmanship to treat the eyes, hands and ears of the player who straps it on… When all is said and done, Nik Huber’s Krautster is clearly a rockmobile, but it’s not as ‘plain Jane’ as it might appear.” Premier Guitar awarded the Krautster a rating of 5.0, the highest possible rating.

“An awful lot of gear comes through here every year and we enjoy playing with all of it,” says Premier Guitar’s editorial director Joe Coffey. “We reserve Premier Gear Awards for the best of the best.”
