Let the Somogyi party commence! We just got in another Brazilian Rosewood Mod D, this time #231 built in 1999! This Mod D has the immense, triumphant bass for which Ervin has garnered praise from across the globe, along with fat, round trebles and a clean midrange to balance out the voice.

Stylistically this Mod D has more bells and whistles than a circus troup of clowns trying to fit in a washing machine: set off by a sparkling French Polished European Top, Ervin's signature segmented rosette, carved bridge, and delicately crenellated headstock reveal an aesthetic at once elegant and exciting. The play feel is effortlessly smooth. Somogyi's work stands at the pinnacle of contemporary guitar building, and this particular offering is just begging to be the lifelong companion for some lucky player. On stage with the dual source Joe Mills microphone and B-Band AST pickup, or travelling alongside you in its Calton case (and Colorado Case Cover), this 1999 Mod D is ready for anything and everything.

1999 Somogyi Modified D -  Acoustic Guitar Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"As always, Ervin has built a complete knockout of a guitar. The trademark Somogyi voice is here in full force with bass rumbles and soaring trebles. This is a guitar that you don't want to put down--and you probably won't" - Paul Heumiller

"One of the better-sounding Somogyi Mod D guitars I've played. The bass response is a bit more focused here than in others I've played, which makes it well-suited to many styles of playing." - Al Petteway
