A great number of things converged and I became the proud owner of a NOS Baker B1. It was sold to me by none other than Genes brother-in-law, Jim Lovinggood, from Wild West Guitars. Jim was exceptional and it was an excellent buying experience. If it looks familiar, then you probably saw it featured in WWG's ad in the August Guitar Player (believe it or not, I only saw that ad a few minutes *after* I sent an inquiry). In fact, Jim got Gene to sign the ad and sent it to me. So after nearly 4 years in a vault, serial WW004 was delivered on 8/4 to finally become someones Number 1. What a voice she has!
