NOT FOR SALE. This amazing instrument was custom made for Dream Guitars owner Paul Heumiller. Three years in the making, this is truly Paul's Dream Guitar. Paul and Ervin designed this guitar to fit Paul's playing style which includes many alternate tunings ranging from Low C tunings to Standard and many genres from Blues to Slow Airs. To accomplish this there are many custom features on this guitar. First it's a 000 body with a 12 fret neck as Paul wanted all the sweet tone and energy you get from the 12 fret bridge placement. They added a cutaway to give back access to the higher frets. A fan fret was employed with a 26" bass scale, to handle tuning down to D or C, and 25" treble scale, for easy tension up high and a fat sound. The asymmetrical neck shape was borrowed from Alan Beardsell and has a bit more mass on the treble side than on the bass so it's fits the hand well, and creates a pseudo soft V. The woods used were a very fine, old set of Brazilian Rosewood that tapped like slate and Paul's preferred Bearclaw Sitka Spruce full of silking. Great Sitka has the combination of warmth, power and overtones Paul likes for his music. The guitar was completed with a set of handmade Rodgers tuners from England and last but not least a hand carved rosette in a Celtic motif. Nobody carves like Ervin does....

Player Reviews:

"I am deeply humbled and honored by this instrument. It's such a joy having an instrument built solely for you with every detail the way you've always wished it was. The moment I touched this Somogyi it felt like home and my music never sounded so right. I've always loved the process of custom building for our customers. It's a process that makes perfect sense when you are seeking a guitar that fits you like an old pair of jeans and makes your music sound like you. I simply cannot pass by this guitar without grabbing it, which is the best feature of all.

It is not for sale, but you are welcome to visit this beauty here at our shop where it hangs right beside me. Also, we custom build guitars from all of the builders we represent, so contact us when you are ready for your Dream Guitar."
