New to Gene Baker's b3 Guitars? Gene 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). 

We recently asked Gene if he would rebuild #001 for us - the very first SL he'd ever built, the prototype. Like many of you, we scroll through our favorite builder's Instagram accounts and when we saw #001, we knew we had to have one...and in this case, two! There are many stunning builds on the b3 IG page, but this one just blew us away. 

This lightly relic'd SL Deluxe - #2 of 2 in this run - with its Strat-meets-Les Paul body, is incredibly comfortable to play. Better balance than a Les Paul, a tummy cut, effortless upper fret access...all while sounding and looking very much like an old Gibson (that 5A quilt top though...!!!). Like proto rebuild #1, it's such a joy to play and has one of the best Gibson style necks we've played in a very long time. It's dead on with a lot of vintage Gibson's we've played.

Wired with a set of b3 PAF style humbuckers, a two volume, two tone (push/pull coil taps), 3-way setup, the sounds are exactly what you'd expect - clear and articulate neck and bridge position tones coupled with a sweet, forward midrange puts you squarely in vintage Les Paul land. 

Condition: Like new. The original owner loved this guitar so much he put in a custom order w/b3. This guitar was babied. 

Fans of high-end PRS, Yaron, Gustavsson, Probett, take note and check out this killer SL Deluxe prototype rebuild from b3 Guitars. A fantastic guitar by any measure! Priced with hardshell case.
