Likely the best guitar in the pack. Too bad we can't all have one............or three.

Just curious... how long does it take a Froggy to go from order to delivery?
My last Froggy took 11 months from order to delivery. This one was just under 7 months. I think they are building around 100 guitars/year.

Mahogany/Adi is such a fantastic combo, and the rest of your specs also seem pretty ideal - thats a fantastic guitar! Congrats!!

Congrats on your new lovely Froggy. Smaller body and mahog with adi on top must sound really focussed and rich. As it grows up, it will gain likely coherence and responsiveness. I have never played a model C and I would love to. It would be so interesting to compare the models H-12, M-12 and C-12 in identical woods to get some sense of the effect of body dimensions. It seems to me the body volume is similar but the shape (plantilla) and depths are different. Bracing might be quite different too. Maybe one day I'll buy a lottery ticket and that ship will come home - I'll commission 3 guitars from Michael to run that experiment. Enjoy and report back how it compares to your other Froggy, a K right?

Thank you. I’ve already changed strings once to see what surprises may lay within.

Normally, I'd agree with the first sentence, but Haasome has a pretty wicked amazing stable and has impeccable taste with guitars. I suspect this guitar is every bit as good as the others he has.

But, I definitely agree with the second sentence! As far as I'm concerned the world would be a better place if all discerning acoustic guitarists had a Frog in their stable.

Haasome, congrats on the new Frog!!! Play it in good health!!!! I'd love to hear how you spread the playing time around your awesome stable.
