Victor Baker Guitars
In the late 1990’s Vic started his journey into guitar making in Philadelphia. Vic really broke out in 2001 when he was commissioned for 8 guitars. This led to a buildup of recognition and an extremely busy building period that lasted until 2008. At this point after assembling well over 200 instruments, Vic’s guitars were in the hands of players around the world. These busy guitar shop years were a juggling act between building guitars and staying in the playing game as much as possible.
In late 2008, Vic was sidelined by a reoccuring injury to his elbow (caused by the grindwork of sanding and shaping the guitars) and was forced to take it easy. He had to limit 2008’s output but as of late 2009 he is healed up and back in commission. Right now Victor is thoroughly enjoying a full schedule of building, gigging, composing, recording and playing with his group. In January 2010 he took the plunge and relocated to NYC, and set up a new workshop in Brooklyn.
