Description

It’s a sincere pleasure to meet guitars again after they’ve seen a bit of the world. Paul couldn’t agree more, when this Somogyi 000 came strolling in the door. He commissioned this very guitar from Ervin in 2007, and he pulled out every. single. stop to make sure it was the perfect instrument. Brazilian Rosewood to make your grandpa cry, a Bearclaw Sitka set on top, tight-grained and amber, custom Rodgers tuners, hand-carved rosette and end graft with a celtic flair—the list goes on. Paul ordered a 12-fret neck for this 000 to maximize the sweetness and warmth of the tone, and added a multiscale board (26” bass to 25” treble) to keep that sweetness and clarity across the myriad of tunings he employs. Right down to the asymmetrical neck carve (borrowed from Al Beardsell’s necks), laminated saddle, and scalloped nut, this Somogyi stands apart from the already rarified crowd that makes up Ervin’s body of work. Back at Dream Guitars for a reprised role as coolest guitar in the shop, this beauty is available for the next lucky owner to claim it!


Here are some samples of Paul playing this Somogyi in G Tuning, C9 Tuning, and Standard Tuning.


Here's an additional video Paul recorded to thank Ervin for the guitar when it was first delivered: https://youtu.be/45Gcw7gkQLY

I originally commissioned this guitar for myself and built it with all the details that I dreamt of for a Somogyi. Ervin and his team at that time considered it one of the finest they had ever made, and many of my pro player friends agreed. The voice is huge and clear, the Brazilian is some of the best I've ever seen, the multiscale board and chip carvings make it one of the most desirable and collectible guitars you’ll see from Ervin.
