I've heard some wonderful praise of these guitars.I'd love some feedback from those lucky few who've owned or played them.I see that few are made yearly,but BOY do those I've seen pictured look to be superlative instruments!...Any thoughts?

  Best wishes to all

Never played one, but have heard them and seen them. Really nice sticks!!! I think Michael Millard is the luthier and does beautiful work.

Had a chance to play a couple Wednesday at Madison Music in Madison, WI.  Madison Music  They had 3, a parlor, a folk size and one locked in a glass case that was over $12,000! It was a slope shoulder sunburst made with Adi/Brazilian.  The folk model was used and sort of dinged up. It was nice, but the Goodalls stole the show that day!

When I was shopping for an OM, I did have a chance to try a Froggy and I must say, it was SWEET!!!!  I really like the tone and playability of the one particular model (I think it was an M).  I did a side by side comparison with a Goodall TROM and I had to give the slight edge to the Froggy on that particular day.  But, I ended up buying the Goodall..... price was an issue and even though I "settled" for the Goodall, I have absolutely no regrets.  To this day, my Goodall is my pride and joy and will be with be to the day I die!!!!

Newstrings,I cannot say you "settled" at all on a Goodall!!...I was at Mandolin Bros two weeks ago,playing a few OM's and played quite a few.One was a gorgeous Goodall "Madi/ Adi" and it was fabulous!!.....Somehow I doubt you're thinking too much about the Froggy-:)

Played my first Froggy this past weekend.  Loved it with all my heart.  Beautiful sustain, note separation, etc.
