Froggy Bottom Model G Jumbo Steel String Acoustic Guitar

Based upon the beautiful, tight-waisted profile of a Gibson L-5, the Froggy Bottom Model G is a true jumbo guitar. Commonly built to be set up with medium gauge strings, like most jumbo guitars the Model G is usually played with picks.

It’s a guitar that you can lean on without having it crush out from underneath you. It delivers well-defined volume across its tonal and pitch range while offering up the tonal complexity and balance that marks Froggy Bottom guitars.

A great guitar for fingerpicking, flat-picking, lead or slide guitar, the Froggy Bottom G is often ordered as a 12-string and is also available as a 4-string bass guitar, with or without frets.

Froggy Model G

Infinitely more complex and supple

My Froggy Bottom G came to me in 2005, just in time for the recording of my 4th CD, The Feral Crow. At the time, it was the best guitar I had ever worked with, bar none. Five years on, it is still the best guitar I’ve ever worked with, but it’s infinitely more complex and supple as an instrument now than it was fresh out of the shop. It is finding its voice. It’s gone from Marion Anderson to Aretha; from Sinatra to Ray Charles. I play it every chance I get.
