of Tesla before he went on tour. For more pics and discussion click

first of the new "RF" models are near completion. The most
noticable difference between these and, say, a Baker B1, are the neck
joint and new inlays - see more pics and details here
you see Robben Ford holding his Baker in July 2002 issue of Guitar Player?
a cool little bit of info that really makes us happy around here. That's
the sort of press that we like. . .

top, fully bound neck and body, "59" control layout, with
Robben's own pickups.
Chance - Doing a Baker Promotion
The Christian Band - Phat Chance - recently worked out a deal with Wild

Guitar seen in the new Lenny Kravitz photo book!
Photographer Mark Seliger put out a book consisting entirely of photos
of Lenny Kravitz (published by Arena Editions) and there are two pictures
of Kravitz with a B1 long scale in plain view. There aren't many guitars
pictured in the book at all, mostly just pics of Lenny, so we thought
it was very cool to see. An Interesting side note - That particular
guitar was used by Oliver Leiber, a Baker endorsee, on the soundtrack
for Mission Impossible 2. See some pics HERE.
"The Bakers Oven" our very first edition newsletter has
been well prepared by Jennifer the lady many of you speak to when you
call in before you can get to me, bless her soul. Thanks to her the office
runs smooth and I get to keep building guitars, sorry but I'm better building
than in the office. Enter your email here for the online newsletter or
enter your physical address for the paper version.->
Guitars has taken on what we consider to be a BIG DEAL. All our TOM bridges
and Stop tails come stock as TonePros
patent pending hardware, using the original tried and true Schaller Nashville
bridge and stop tailpiece. Check them out for more info. You wont believe
the difference without altering anything on the guitar. This was a no
brainer for us because we were already using these parts anyhow. Once
we received our samples the future of any guitar with this setup was clear.
They solved a problem that all guitar players have been dealing with for
50 years and now we have joined their choir with rave reviews from any
artist that gets their hands on them. We encourage everyone to try one
for yourself or contact your nearest Baker dealer for TonePros parts.
projects in the pipeline are Baker Basses soon to be available in 4 and
5 string models, 34" and 35" scale length's. Brian Wheat of
Tesla has his first 5 string 34" scale bass in R&D (Research
and Development) and if all comes out as we all plan he will become and
exclusive endorsed artist to the growing pro players that have found their
way to Baker Guitars and the many custom features we offer. Also Super
B models are available with no lengthy wait times. Floyd Rose Trem models
are also an easy option that we can do for you at the drop of a dime.
Other trem models in R&D using The
Point Trem bridge system. More RMC
Piezo bridge systems in the works and we hope to offer more of them
to you soon at a reduced cost. Split coil pull pot options will soon become
a standard feature on all Baker models using humbucking pickups.
