Dropped by Gene's new shop on Saturday. I got the nickel tour and was impressed by the progress he's made. He's running his first batch of his new guitars, which are basically his Robben Ford models with the "Matte Henderson" headstock.

I did get a couple pics, first is a stack of B3 RF bodies:



and this one is mine :D



Gene thought that the first batch would be done in December. Glad to see him back! :dude

We have our fingers crossed, but Gene and I are optimistic we'll have one of these at our NAMM booth. I can't wait. :dude

TNJ -

It looks like I am going to have to get that RF back from you actually. It was used when I sold it to you and it is probably even more used now. That being said, I would be willing to pay you whatever it was that you gave me for it just to be fair. :D

Hope all is well brother.

Evan.

Hey Evan...
Everything be cool over here, my man!
I'm doing a bit of the classic rock thing at the moment.
The RF can def kick it old school!
Still on the gear journey, and enjoying every note.


Oh...and no way on the RF...unless you wanna throw one of those "D" amps my way from you know who!
:D

Take care, bro...

Anyone have a pic of the "Matte" headstock? Can't wait to get me one of these new Bakers!

No problem..here you go. Matte designed this headstock to incorporate a straight string pull which keeps the guitar in tune when using the trem. I love the way it looks, and the guitar I have holds perfect tune even under serious trem use.

We're optimistic we'll have a guitar from Gene there. I think Gene has chosen not to have his own booth at this particular show, so we offered to let him place a guitar with us. As a Baker owner and friend of Gene's, it's the least I could do, and I'm sure we can draw booth traffic for one another.

We try to help small builders when we can. We're also gonna have a PRS 513 at the booth too.

Now if Gene really wanted to be my "new bestest friend in the whole world" (it only lasts an hour or so before the glow fades really), he'd make it a transparent blue stain RF model with nickel hardware, but I'm sure I'd be really quite happy with anything he could get to the booth.

If you need a badge, let me know Jim. I'd love to meet you and "chew the fat". We could have our first annual "pure evil incarnate and friends" party........... :dude

I'm sure there would be a few folks to attend "that party"... Randall, Stark, me...sheesh... maybe an invitation list is in order, huh?

I think I can get Wagner/WCR to cough me up a badge, but if he has his committed already I may take you up on your offer. Thanks very much.

I'll make sure to get a new T shirt or two made up to signify my title, and your former title.

How about "The reigning and current "Pure Evil Incarnate"" for me and "The Former & all time record holding "Pure Evil Incarnate"" for you?

One must give credit where credit is due...you know? Respect your elders, betters, or whatever? :D
