Mean Gene is really Mr Nice Guy!
Well, that's another cool interview in the can and thank you Mr. Baker. 'Mean' Gene who is in fact a very nice guy, had an outstanding guitar building career with Fender and Gibson. Gene now creates his own guitars under the b3 brand name. As one of the original Fender master builders, he also recently designed his 30th Anniversary Founder's Design 'Stelecaster' (yes part Strat part Tele) for release in 2017. Wow, besides building guitars this dude sure can play them. He's playing one of his own creations in the above photo.
