We've got a hearthrob for all you flatpicking maestros who want a Dreadnought for cannonading at the Bluegrass session that can also handle delicate fingerstyle arrangements when you're playing solo--this 1986 Somogyi Mod D with Indian Rosewood and Sitka Spruce is the birthday present you've been waiting for all year.
The voice is strong and expressive, but excellently well-balanced so even when you're providing backing chord work for your bandmates the guitar is articulate and clear. The middle registers have a particular presence that puts a little extra meat on the bones of your solos, fleshing out the tone with warmth and color. With brand new frets and a McIntyre Feather pickup, this Somogyi is ready to hit the stage!
One of Ervin's earlier guitars, this Mod D is a unique glimpse into the foundations of Ervin's legendary reputation--and with a foundation as strong as this guitar, it's no wonder Somogyi has become a household name for guitarists and builders everywhere.

"This is a great example of Ervin's early mastery of steel-string guitar construction. The voice is very responsive, and goes from 0 to 11 on the volume knob pretty much instantaneously. Newer Somogyi guitars might benefit from his evolved voiced techniques, but this Mod D has 30 years of getting played in and opening up going for it; something you need to hear for yourself firsthand." - Paul Heumiller
"This is a classic early guitar by Ervin Somogyi. It is characterized by strong mids and a balanced overall sound. If you are fan of Somogyi guitars and want something unique to fill out your collection this will be worth looking at.
