Froggy Bottom D14 Model Dreadnought Guitar

Why dreadnought?

The flagship of the Home Fleet of the British navy from 1907-1917 was the HMS Dreadnought, an 18,110-ton battleship with an "all-big-gun" main battery (ten twelve-inch guns) and a steam turbine powerplant. With her 21-knot maximum speed and impressive battery, the Dreadnought ("fear nothing") so thoroughly eclipsed earlier designs that subsequent battleships were commonly known as "dreadnoughts."

Honoring its namesake, the Froggy Bottom Model D Guitar translates that big-gun quality into sound. Based on the popular dreadnought body shape, the Froggy Bottom Model D retains the power of the original design while bringing clarity to the powerful bottom end common to dreadnoughts, while retaining the valued tonal complexity common to other Froggy Bottom Guitars.
