Water, Wood, Metal, Fire. Each model in the b3 Guitar line from master builder Gene Baker is aimed at a specific tonal space. All are straight-ahead tools for serious musicians. 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.
