It's hard to imagine what the state of contemporary guitar-building would be, if Ervin Somogyi hadn't decided to take up the chisel and carve a new trajectory for luthiers everywhere. We're excited to offer another powerful example of his prowess with this 2000 Mod D, featuring quilted Honduran Mahogany back and sides and a Sitka Spruce top. This Mahogany could be easily mistaken for a set from The Tree, so thoroughly figured are the grainlines--and the Sitka has opened up beautifully after over 16 years of music.

As with all of Somogyi's instruments, all it takes is one strum for this Mod D to fill a room with its sumptuous voice, and it sings particularly well in lowered tunings (try Cadd9 or DADGAD for an experience in rapture), where the low-end really opens up, but maintains a well-defined edge from the Honduran Mahogany. Regardless of the style in which you play, this guitar's clean tone and pronounced articulation will render even simple arrangements lush and orchestral--there's practically no ceiling to this Mod D's projective powers. What's more, this guitar was sent to Ervin just this year for an evaluation, and while it was in his shop Somogyi also re-voiced the Sitka Spruce top, combining his newest techniques with this guitar's already fully opened-up voice. As such, this Mod D has the best of both worlds--you'll want to jump on this one quickly!

2000 Somogyi Mod D -  Acoustic Guitar Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"Playing one of Somogyi's Mod Ds, I wonder why I bother with any other kind of guitar. The strength and complexity of the Sitka Spruce and Honduran Mahogany, combined with its great playability, put this guitar in a category all of its own. We've had many Somogyis through our store, and this one definitely ranks highly among them, especially thanks to Ervin's re-voicing of the top!" - Paul Heumiller

"One of the better-sounding Mod D Somogyi guitars that I've played. This one is rich and full as you would expect, but still feels balanced." - Al Petteway
