Two Featured Guitars with Petria Mitchell's Engravings

Featured F12, Featured K, engravings by Glenn Carson and Petria Mitchell

These two guitars mark the end of an era at Froggy Bottom. Though very different in design, they are the last two instruments featuring the engraving work of our long-time engraving collaborator Petria Mitchell.

The first guitar is an F-12 of 5A Koa and Master grade Adirondack, with a slightly shorter-than usual 25.1” scale length. It’s warm and complex and a finger picker's dream. Someone who played it recently described it as the absolute best fingerstyle guitar he’d ever had his hands on. Nice praise from a man who has been playing for over sixty years! It’s priced at $17,705.   Video and more images.

The second guitar is a Model K of extremely figured 5A Brazilian rosewood and Master Grade Adirondack. We often call the Model K our most versatile guitar, and this one is certainly that. It’s not inexpensive at $24,040, but it may well be the best guitar you ever play. Video and more images.

Both instruments are of Limited-Plus Grade and have both heelcap and end graft engravings done by Ms. Mitchell, as well as the “Froggy” headstock logo and #7 fretboard inlay of engraved mother-of-pearl done by our friend Glenn Carson.

Check out the video clips and give us a call if we can answer any questions you may have about these two beauties. Your grandchildren will thank you if you bring one of ‘em home.
