    I just completed a trade with Luca Zanini (screen name Mark Rutland) for a beautiful Baker B1C. Shipping to and from Switzerland was quick and surprisingly cheap, and I couldn't be more pleased. Sincerest thanks, Luca!

    I'm just starting to put the guitar through its paces, and I now see what all the excitement about Gene's guitars is about. It's just a superb instrument, with a perfect neck, frets, finish et al. This guitar is going to give my '99 R9 Les Paul a fierce fight for my #1 spot. What a beauty! Tom

    Thanks Tom!

    You waited nearly one year for this guitar I'm glad it was worth the wait!

    Gene's guitars are simply GREAT, no question about it.
    I'm looking forward to the new Fine Tuned Instruments:dude

    Tom,

    Beautiful. Gene's B1Cs are real finds.

    And, as Boog204 said, it's great to have another Baker in Conneciticut.

    If you ever want to get rid of that e-mail me.I'm serious.
    I own a B1C and would love one with Genes 59 neck.
    Mine has a set of Wagner Filmores in it and is just the best sounding guitar I've ever owned.(and I've had a few :p )
    Cheers
    Paul
