Default NGD Custom Froggy C

Here’s a new 12-fret Froggy Bottom C that I ordered 6+ months ago with a couple of modifications. It’s a Mahogany/Adi with a solid headstock, pyramid bridge and 2-5/16” spacing at the bridge. As is typical with Froggy Bottom guitars, this one sounds big, deep and resonate for an 00-sized guitar.

Simply stunning!
My first time blown away by boutique acoustics was a parlor FB in 1992.

Wow!

Congrats!!!

Although I’m quite content with what I have, were I to do it all over again I would get a C with 1 7/8” nut in rosewood.

Yikes! That is a killer guitar. Congratulations.

Just curious... how long does it take a Froggy to go from order to delivery?
