The Froggy Bottom D12 is our version of the original 12-fret Dreadnought design – a not-too-distant cousin of the Froggy D14. A requested model since 1971, this traditional 12-fret, slope-shouldered dreadnought has the powerful bottom end common to dreadnoughts, while retaining the power and clarity of the D-14 across its range. The Froggy Bottom D-12 brings an interesting and complex range of overtones to the table, tonal qualities that it shares with other Froggy Bottom 12-fret designs.
One dreadnought to cover everything…
If a person wanted one dreadnought to cover everything, this would do it. You can flat pick the hell out of it, or play soft finger-style. I flat pick exclusively, but my original instrumentals and arrangements tend to sound more like I was finger picking. I use the open strings to add that “ring” and sustain while playing the melodies. The D Model is great for that.
