With the revival of interest in older 12 fret guitars, many of our clients have found this 12-fret jumbo to be their favorite instrument. Coupling the richness and balance of a 12-fret guitar with the power of by an instrument of this size, the B12 remains a popular choice.
With a longer scale length of 27″, the Model B is also our standard Froggy Bottom Baritone guitar. With this scale, these are usually tuned down to either B or C and strung .015 – .070″.
B12 Twelve String Guitars
We have made a number of B Model 12-strings with a 25.25” scale for use with light gauge strings (.012 – .054″) at standard pitch.
Available as a 12-string with a 26 ” scale (originally designed for Blues master Paul Geremia), this is THE model for those of us who love the old Stella 12-strings of Willie McTell and Leadbelly. This scale guitar is designed be tuned down a whole tone.
What the %#*@ is that?
II remember the first time I played my Froggy Baritone at the Ovation Center in Madison, Wisconsin – one of the greatest music venues in America. I forget the sound guy’s name (he’s been there forever), but starting the sound check, I play the first few notes on it and he literally yells from the top deck, “What the %#*@ is that?”
Its a Froggy baritone.
Yeah, I should have known it was a Froggy, but the baritone thing is new to me.
And I said, ‘It’s new to me, too.’
I get that wherever I go.
