The Dolphin is Nik’s Signature Model and in many respects represents Nik's finest work. The workmanship is exquisite and this Custom Dolphin based on Nik’s 10th Anniversary Dolphin Limited Run does not dissappoint. It is a double stained Atlantic Blue Dolphin II with an exceptional 1-piece quilted maple top . It has a magnificent flamed Mahogany body with exquisite maple topside body purfling. The 3 Dolphin inlay includes a handcut Multi-Inlay made of Abalone, Black Pearl, and Mother of Pearl. This guitar has a Brazilian Rosewood package consisting of a solid 1-piece Brazilian Rosewood Neck, Fingerboard, and outstanding backside cover plate with Brazilian Rosewood tuning keys, control knobs and truss cover. The neck is superb. It has great feel with a thickness similar to a great Historic ‘59 R9. The 25.5" scale helps with sustain and playability. It has 2 Haussel Humbucking pick-ups, Nik's preferred pick-up choice. Drop-dead gorgeous looks and workmanship, outstanding tonewoods, exceptional playbility, and great sound. Simply awesome.
