Baker B1 Electric Guitar
Gene Baker has been obsessed with guitars for a long time—he built his first guitar when he was still in middle school. He eventually ended up as a senior master’s apprentice at Gibson, and then a Fender Custom Shop senior master builder before branching out on his own. Over the last decade or so, he built a reputation for building impeccable-playing double-cutaways with gorgeous figured-maple tops stained in a huge array of colors. Most recently, he’s gotten even more attention as the master builder and chief engineer for Premier Builders Guild, where he oversees production of a limited selection of designs from six boutique brands—his own b3 line, as well as popular models from Dennis Fano, Roger Giffin, Saul Koll, Johan Gustavsson, and Jason Schroeder.
This "Pre Ed Roman" Baker guitar was built in the US by Gene, and is a very sought after Baker model! When Ed Roman acquired legal right to us the name "Baker" he ran with the idea and started making cheaper model Baker guitars in Korea.(which are still mass produced to this day)
This 2002 Baker is a gem to behold. The Dimarzio DP196 & BGHW92 sing together perfectly, and give off a big fat humbucker tone perfect for blazing guitar solos or chunky rhythm parts! The Amber burst looks amazing over the maple top, and weights in less than any PRS at 8.2 lbs! You can't go wrong with a Made in USA Baker!
This Pre-Owned Guitar is in Very Good Condition w/ light dings and scratches in the top & back.
