The Future Is Here... Baranik B1s Land at TNAG!


We were all truly thrilled and excited here at The North American Guitar in the time following the Winter NAMM Show pending the arrival of a host of brand new instruments from some of our favourite luthiers, and now they have begun to arrive that excitement has seamlessly transferred into our continuing journey with these magnificent fresh additions to our walls!

One of the most refreshing aspects of the small workshop world is seeing each builder keep pushing their boundaries and striving for innovative and unexplored ways to build and inspire. A great example from the show was our dear friend Mike Baranik, presenting a range of fully formed, out-of-this-world electrics along side his outstanding, highly nuanced Acoustics.

This striking new model looks like it was pulled right out of Roswell, with the build quality and staggering attention to detail we've always been so fond of in Mike's work very much present and at its finest in these versatile instruments.

Although both feature the distinctive new body shape and instantly iconic headstock, the range on display between the two instruments is a joy to behold and interact with, with a similar ethos in the clarity and detail of their tones amid distinctly differing outputs and draws.

We've been blown away on our journey so far with this remarkable pair, and cannot wait to see where Mike's vision takes us all going into the future with this brand new lineup.
