The Larrivee Baker-T is the ultra high end tele-style electric that is deliberately made for any player that demands the finest in electric guitars.
The Baker-T Classic sports a sleek, gorgeous body design that feels exceptionally comfortable, and makes for a great playing experience. With an incredibly fast "Slim C" Maple neck profile, traversal up and down the neck is a breeze. The Baker-T's tone is largely attributed to its use of Larrivee's in-house-made single coil pickups, employing an Alnico V at the bridge, and an Alnico VI at the neck. With its gorgeous Surf Green Gloss finish, Rosewood fingerboard, and Vintage Style Ashtray bridge, this guitar has the looks and the tone.
