My Guitar Story: Adam Miller’s signature Nik Huber Rietbergen

Based on Nik Huber's hollowbody design, the model has quickly become his most prized guitar

Virtuosic guitar player Adam Miller became a fan of Nik Huber’s luthiery many years ago after stumbling across his work in a guitar magazine. The blend of archtop and Telecaster styles was perfect for his playing style. Acquired in 2016, he states that the guitar is closer in tone and feel to a Telecaster rather than the 335 it is visually reminiscent of.

Based on Huber’s Rietbergen model, construction consists of a mahogany neck, whilst the back, sides and centre block are carved from one piece of mahogany. The top is Californian redwood with a natural finish, accentuating the flame. Unique to Miller’s signature model are the Lollar Gold Foil single coils and the rosewood fingerboard. The guitar has since become a loyal companion to Miller, accompanying him on numerous sessions and tours, regularly as the sole guitar.

Adam Miller’s latest album, Unify, is out now. For more on the Rietbergen visit Nik Huber.
