Custom Boutique Acoustic Guitar!
Boutique Guitar Showcase featured instrument! Just over 20 years ago, luthier Cory Batson unleashed his revolutionary new guitar designs and technologies to the acoustic guitar world. Batson’s unique engineering challenged the traditional Martin X-braced designs, long believed to be the “gold standard”. Batson’s artisanal, hand-crafted instruments feature unique bracing patterns, patented bridge and tailpiece systems, cantilevered necks, tops without sound-holes, and side sound portals, all designed to allow his tops to vibrate more freely and create a sonically superior voice.
Blending unique guitar designs with state-of-the-art technologies, Batson Guitars include sleek Honduran Mahogany necks, comfortable armrest bevels, cutaway, hardshell case and electronics. The fit and finish on a Batson acoustic guitar is flawless.
This particular instrument is a Custom Shop Jumbo featuring some absolutely stunning tonewoods. “Cloudy” Cocobolo, named for its undulating figure, was utilized for the back and sides while a beautifully figured piece of Douglas Fir was hand-selected for the top. The neck is Mahogany and the bridge, tailpiece and fingerboard are Ebony. A beveled arm rest of figured Maple adds comfort and playability to this large bodied guitar.
The tone is huge with that breathy, undulating bass similar to a Gibson J-200. But it is also refined, clear and articulate. Very “player pleasing” due to the side soundhole directing all that tone right back at you as you play. It allows for a perfect view inside the body where the impeccable craftsmanship of Cory Batson’s lutherie skills are on full display. Having the hole on the side also eliminates traditional problems with soundhole related feedback, making them perfect for live performances and studio recording. Overall this is a truly inspiring instrument. Batson's proprietary bracing, bridge and tail piece design creates a unique voice with enhanced sonic superiority allowing his guitars to excel in all types of playing styles from finger style to folk-rock rhythms to gypsy-jazz leads.
