All PBG instruments are built in the USA:
b3 Guitars by Gene Baker are designed and built by master builder Gene Baker and his team at the PBG workshop in Arroyo Grande, California. Gene and his team also build guitar models designed exclusively for PBG by boutique luthiers Dennis Fano, Roger Giffin, Johan Gustavsson, Saul Koll and Jason Z. Schroeder, who are in close contact with Gene at every stage of their builds.

Tone King amplifiers are designed and built by amp master builder Mark Bartel at the Tone King workshop in Baltimore, Maryland. Mark will also build amplifiers designed by Bob Gjika, with Bob in contact at every stage.

PBG recently acquired the Two-Rock boutique amplifier brand. Two-Rock amplifiers are designed and built at the Two-Rock workshop in Rohnert Park, CA, under the direction of Two-Rock Chief Designer Bill Krinard.

This rare English Tonemaster was made circa 1957.

The Valco-produced English Tonemaster is a rare, lap-steel-inspired gem from the 1950s—when genres and guitar design were fluid.

The 1950s were a peculiar time for the electric guitar. Innovators, designers, and tinkerers were pushing the boundaries of the instrument, while musicians were experimenting with various playing techniques and sounds. There was an evolution of sorts (or de-evolution, depending on your slant) from solidbody “sit-down” guitars, like pedal and lap steels, to “stand-up” or “upright” solidbody electrics. If you look at an early Fender catalog—let’s say from 1953—you’ll see the Telecaster (and Esquire), the Precision Bass, and then a whole bunch of steel guitars. There was a shift underway, and many manufacturers began to blur the lines of what a guitar should look, sound, and play like.
