Established in 2007 in California, Baden Guitars build handmade acoustic guitars that are keenly priced and more affordable than other handmade guitars from boutique builders. All of their guitars are unique and use solid woods with hand-carved dovetail neck joints. Baden Guitars are made the old-world way, with mallets and chisels, but priced to compare favourably with high-end factory instruments, and are far more affordable than handmade guitars from small high-end ‘boutique’ builders. Every instrument is unique.
