who we are

We embrace design, quality, responsibility and hard work to build accessible guitars for anyone, anywhere.

Baton Rouge was founded in 1999 when our founder and CEO Gunther recognized that it was difficult to find quality guitars at an accessible price. He set out on his journey of hard work and determination to build a brand founded on the belief that quality and affordable guitars should be available to anyone.

Today, Baton Rouge guitars are played in over 40 countries around the world. Our guitars are especially popular amongst the fingerpicking community, as well as can be spotted around the campfire, on stage, or in the classroom.

We welcome the next generation of artists, musicians and creators to our community of optimists and change makers. Together, we embrace design, quality, hard work and responsibility and express ourselves through Baton Rouge guitars and ukuleles.
