Exciting New Batson Acoustic Guitars

Hey everyone! I hope you find this intriguing as I! Recently my friend and luthier, Cory Batson, set out to build his guitars and make them available to people without the price of a boutique guitar. I helped him get connected with a few folks that has made it happen! And they turned out beautiful! Here’s some video slide show that my wife Twila and I put together. She’s a great photographer and I play guitar well, and we finally put our talents together to come up with something that showcases these guitars. www.twilasphotography.com (weddings and what not 🙂 )

The guitars are currently available at Batson Guitars website.


This is the Gypsy model! It is solid cedar and solid Rosewood back and sides, with a beautiful maple bevel. The bevel makes it so comfortable to play.

This is the Americana Model.

Perfect for strumming, percussive elements, and fingerpicking.

I’ve never heard a guitar with such resonance! This sibling has a solid spruce top and mahogany back and sides.

This model is titled Troubador.  Like it’s other siblings, but this guitar has solid spruce and rosewood back and sides.
