The SL sports better balance than a Les Paul, has a tummy cut, and effortless upper fret access...all while sounding and looking very much like an old Gibson.
Why We Love This
Gene Baker of b3 Guitars is a legend in the guitar world, long known for his flawless builds and meticulous attention to detail. He was a Senior Master Builder at the Fender Custom Shop, also worked at the Gibson Custom Shop, and was the builder responsible for building the Koll, Gustavsson, Fano, Schroeder, and Giffin guitars under the Premier Builder's Guild brand to name a few highlights. Oh, and Robben Ford slung a Baker guitar for many, many years (as have many other pros).
If you're in the market for a high-performance, modern leaning guitar with lots of gorgeous and creative appointments that's still got vintage vibe, feel, tone, and attitude? Give b3 a try, you won't be disappointed.
