We make guitars one at a time.

Over the course of fifty years of instrument building handmade custom guitars here at Froggy Bottom Guitars, our building methodology has turned on a simple idea: we make one guitar at a time.

One guitar, one player. It’s personal.

We go beyond ensuring that each guitar has been built to specs. In addition to the details of each guitar’s design, we know who the guitar is for; what it is designed to do; and how the details of its construction play into the overall goals of the client for the instrument itself. We are not a factory; we are not factory workers. We are intimately involved with every instrument we build.

At Froggy Bottom, we have not lusted to increase our guitar output year after year. Our connection to each instrument and player would suffer. Instead, we strive to get each instrument to exceed the hopes and expectations of its owner, to open new territory for them and to satisfy and expand their musical lives.  

Every guitar is a custom guitar.

We don’t promote our instruments by the stars who play them. We see no use in focusing your attention on the guitar someone else is playing. Our goal is to build a guitar for you.

That is why we do what we do, the way we do it.
