    Did some horse trading with Jim at Tradarama and this new Baker B3 might make it to my house on Santa's sleigh. Heard so many great things about Gene Baker's builds and am looking forward to giving this one a whirl.

    Anyone have any insight they want to share about the B3 guitars?

    We sure do Dave.:cool: Jim still has the Pelham Blue B3 with the 3 mini humbuckers. It was a tough choice between those two.

    Looks like Santa won't make this delivery in time due to the Blizzard that hit the DC area earlier this week. :cry:

    Man i want that guitar! Congrats!

    Is it short scale? It's a real interesting combo, hog, tele bridge, humbuckers. I bet it sounds great!

    It's a typical Fender 25.5" scale. I think I'll call it a Paulcasterbird. Or maybe a Les Firecaster. Help me out here...:)

    I think it's more of a Les-Firecaster-SG-O'Bird. Trips of the tounge too!
