❌SOLD❌ Froggy Bottom M Body Guitar Sunburst, 2001

Instrument Categories: , ,

The Froggy Bottom M Body guitar is hand crafted in Michael Millard’s six-person Froggy Bottom shop in Chelsea, Vermont USA.

Based on 16 inch wide ‘jumbo’ style body, the Froggy Bottom M body is similar in dimensions to the Martin M design, bigger than the classic 000 body but not as large as a dreadnought. This body design produces a harmonically more even tone than the dreadnought, with less attack and sustain. These characteristics make it an excellent choice for fingerstyle guitarists.

This M body example dates to 2001 and, according to Michael Millard, is a ‘basic Model M with Tobacco Burst on an Adirondack Spruce top’. The sides, back and neck are Mahogany, with Ebony for the fingerboard and bridge, and Rosewood for the head plate. A small Mother of Pearl ‘Frog’ inlay adorns the headstock. The body binding is flame Maple, and Schaller mini tuners are at the head. 

This Froggy Bottom M Body is in overall good condition, with normal wear and tear. There is slight finish lifting next to the bridge, and at the top bass side waist binding. It plays well, with a full, even tone.

The original hard shell case is included.
