    Help me name this Baker B3 that I'm anxiously awaiting.

    It has a Tele type body with 3 saddle string thru bridge, the neck carve is a 59 LP with bound fingerboard and LP style inlays, the construction is neck thru with wings like a Firebird. Mahogany body and Rosewood board with 25.5" neck scale and dual PAF style Lollar Humbuckers. Gene Baker calls it a Phoenix which is pretty cool, but I'm trying to give it a nickname.

    What would you call it?

    Wow, that is a fine looking fiddle! I always have to figure out if my guitar is male or female first... that means playing it for awhile.

    You clearly already knew it was made to be named Maurice. It rolls off the tongue quite a bit nicer than those other names, and, hell, you came up with it, rather than us. Just do it.

    I was going to suggest "The Mutt" but I like Maurice as well.

    You want me to name the guitar Carvin or are you asking if it's made by Carvin? Either way, the answer is NO. :jo
