Featured Guitars - Exclusive from FBG Shop

In the Spring of 2005 we decided to begin building a few extra special instruments each year to be offered for sale exclusively through our web site. While Froggy Bottom has a well deserved reputation for our use of especially fine woods, each of these guitars will feature the very best of our finest woods, and each will be absolutely unique. If you’re looking for the most collectible of fine contemporary handmade guitars, these will be instruments you’ll want to see, play and own.

We’ll offer you a detailed look at each guitar with excellent hi-res photos, and each featured instrument will be available for purchase only from the Froggy Bottom shop.

If you have questions, we would greatly appreciate them by phone (802 763-0100)  rather than by email.

M-1927 - Brazilian Rosewood Froggy Bottom Guitar

This one is special. A set of old growth 5A Brazilian rosewood – the dark chocolate-colored stuff – carefully mated with a German spruce soundboard harvested in 1876! There is nothing ‘torrefied’ here. No gimmicks. This instrument is the real deal. ...
