    Mentioned to the fine folks here in town at Badaxe Boutique that I was considering a lightweight high end guitar and was interested in a headless design, Badaxe hooked up w/ the one and only Mr Gene Baker, who is now associated w/ local custom builder Roscoe. Went by this morning and got the tour and was allowed to manhandle several fine B3 Sahara headless models. Gene is a super cool dude and gracious host, and he is building some amazing stuff!

    Sweet Brooks, I love Gene's Guitars. Its nice to see he went with HAAS Machines. He will get the service he needs from them.

    For some reason I thought he was building at the Fender Custom Shop most recently. His stuff looks high quality all the time .

    Saw the Sahara prototype at NAMM 2016, I think. Great sounding and playing guitar. He does great work...
