by Daniel Odle November 17, 2020 3 min read

 

Jean Larrivee, known across the industry as a master luthier, has added a new line of guitars as we reach the end of 2020.  This is the Larrivee Guitars Baker-T Electric Guitar.

From the Larrivee website: 

The Larrivée Baker-T is our ultra-high-end tele-style electric that is precision made in America for any player that demands the finest. The Baker-T employs only the highest quality parts and materials available. Exactly what you would expect from any guitar built under the Larrivée brand. With features like our fast-playing "Slim C" neck profile and “Super-Satin” hand-rubbed satin-finish neck, you'll enjoy hours of effortless and comfortable playing. The custom Seymour Duncan "Baker-T" and Broadcaster pickups deliver that classic warm tele lead tone with all the extra punch and twang you want. The Baker-T 2020 is a fully loaded, fully serviceable electric that will inspire any player to take it to the next level.

Other features include medium jumbo frets, "Duncan" forearm cut, comfortable belly cut, and rounded neck shoulders to ease "behind the nut string bends".
