Solid spruce over solid flamed koa... and quality all the way. Who can argue? This is a wonderful rig. For the player wanting pure, clean resonance and projection for flatpicking or fingerpicking, this will suit. The neck is also super-slick and fast and the build is superb throughout. The bracing is reminiscent of 30s-style Martin weight and cut and as you'd expect it has a similar palette to boot. Anyone who knows of Froggy Bottom's boutique reputation knows that something new built like this by the shop would run in the $6500-7000 range. Eek!
This is up for grabs as consignment for a customer and I've given it a quick fret level/dress (light) and setup. It plays spot-on with 3/32" bass and 1/16" treble at the 12th fret. The neck cut is similar to a modern Taylor in depth/bulk but has a sort of 30s-Martin rear profile so if you wanted to jack the action up for bluegrass lead playing you'd still have a very fast feel. The body is almost identical to a 000-size instrument and more info can be found at the FB site.
