Froggy Bottom Model D14 Dreadnought Guitar

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.

Froggy Bottom Guitar Model D14

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.
