Froggy's most popular model, the H12 is a pure delight to play. Much like Bourgeois' OMS, it is a 15" wide guitar with a 12-fret neck join, with the resulting longer upper bout, giving it a voice distinct from the OM. This model, crafted back when Circle String/Iris Guitar's Adam Buchwald was still working on the Froggy team, features Adirondack spruce and Indian rosewood. It's incredibly well-balanced, and no tonal register competes against the other. It simply has that classic warmth and nuance that only a good IRW and Adi guitar can have. The H12 is especially well-suited to fingerstyle, with the slightly shorter scale and 12-fret configuration giving it an easy and immediate response. A better guitar for accompaniment, songwriting, and intimate solo playing is hard to imagine.

A few minor dings are scattered across the body, but nothing to detract from this guitar's tone and overall beauty. The current set-up is excellent for many playing styles, and the frets are only starting to show a bit of wear under the high E and B strings.
