A graceful work of art with its carved top and carved back.
The b3 Water Semi-Hollow Body Electric Guitar is designed and built by master guitar builder Gene Baker. Gene is also an exceptional player who has learned what players really appreciate over time. The b3 Water is the culmination of his years playing and building guitars. It has a carved back and a beautifully carved flame maple top on a chambered mahogany body with two talon holes for a full semi-hollow body sound. The top and back are both outlined by cream binding that continues up the neck. Ebony veneer and the b3 logo cover the headstock, the other side of which is signed and serialized by the Gene. TonePros Kluson style tuners and a Nashville style bridge with stoptail control intonation and tuning. On the electronics side, the Water model is well equipped with Lollar humbuckers, a 3-way switch, and master Volume and Tone controls. Built-in strap locks come standard. Includes a G&G custom hardshell case.
A Gibson Custom Shop master builder at age 25, Gene later moved to Fender Custom Shop, where he was named master builder and then senior master builder. While at Fender, Gene collaborated with Robben Ford on three models and also created original "Gene Baker" pieces.
Gene eventually left Fender in order to apply his vast expertise to his own nameplate. He heads the PBG workshop in Arroyo Grande, California, where he designs and builds b3 Guitars as well as models designed by PBG master builders Roger Giffin, Johan Gustavsson, Saul Koll and Jason Z. Schroeder. Gene shreds regularly, with his Mean Gene Band.
