Details

Inspired by Mike Baranik’s love for old school surf rock music, and the weird vintage guitars that are synonymous with it, the Baranik B1 is a modern take on these retro wonders. Baranik took all of the aspects that he loved about these vintage instruments and produced a guitar that meets the needs of a modern player. The Achiuha body and Maple top and neck are met with a completely unique headstock design that utilizes a reverse headstock string pull.

This design increases the tension on the bass strings while lowering the tension on the treble strings, producing more defined lows and higher strings that are easier to bend. This is complimented by the psychedelic Mojo Hologram Tissue Box pickups, which are an authentic reproduction of the Kay single coil “Kleenex” pickup. Hand wound using 43awg wire and Alnico 5 magnets, these pickups are reminiscent of a P90, just brighter and less compressed, making them perfect for achieving vintage surf rock tones. 

With its Space Gray finish, anodized purple hardware, Duesenberg Trem, slim C neck, and 14” radius, this Baranik B1 effortlessly captures the funky, retro vibe of the ’60s while providing a player with modern enhancements and reliability.
