This guitar was auctioned off in 2013. One of the very first Baker B1 models, Ronnie Montrose named this guitar "The Beast." This 1997 Baker B1 guitar was Montrose's main stage guitar, built for him by Gene Baker. The 1 7/8" neck was custom made for Montrose. He toured with this guitar and played it at WestFest in 2009. He also played this guitar in the film Guitar Man as well as in the video "Ronnie Montrose - Live at the Uptown." It was the guitar he used on the last concert DVD and on the "Ronnie Montrose and Friends: 10x10" project that is to be released in 2014. It features a flame maple top and solid mahogany body and neck with a rosewood fingerboard. Includes a picture of Montrose with the guitar, a letter of authenticity from Gene Baker, a Custom Spec sheet, and a hardshell case."

Anticipating the coroner’s findings would soon be made public, the Montrose family asked me to write this article. I was a long-time friend and colleague, and the family wanted the painful story to be told by a member of the Bay Area media that Montrose himself knew and trusted.
