Description

We must be doing something right at Dream Guitars, because we've landed another Somogyi Mod D! This 2007 Modified Dreadnought comes to us with a fabulous set of Brazilian Rosewood, chocolate-dark and tantalizing, and a European Spruce top chock full of alternating bands of dark and light growth lines. Ringing in the soundhole is Ervin's "Patio Stone" rosette (one of the first guitars to feature this style), the stylings of which you can also find inlaid at intervals across the fingerboard.

Somogyi's Mod D shape was designed with the fingerstylist in mind, one who needed a pronounced, resounding bass that was well balanced with the other registers, and a responsiveness that could be faithfully accessed whether played delicately or with gusto. This Modified Dread has all that and more: with a slinky low setup and Florentine Cutaway, this Somogyi is effortlessly playable. The voice, whether strummed or plucked, is certifiably rich and enveloping, but overall quite focused, so big chords can ring out in all their complexity without any one string outsinging its brothers. Believe us, once you pick this Somogyi up, you won't want to let it go until we pry it out of your cold, dead hands.

Everyone knows it: Ervin is the master. Every time I get a hold of one of his guitars, it's like picking up a guitar for the first time again. Everything sounds new and exciting, and even the simplest melody is given an extra dose of richness and color. This Mod D is everything you could want in an acoustic guitar: flatpicking, fingerstyle, percussive tapping, Blues or Celtic, ballad or slip jig, this Somogyi is ready for action. Each string feels like an instrument unto itself, and the "Patio Stone" mosaic is gorgeous with shades of blue and gray and green perflings.
 
One of the better-sounding Somogyi guitars I've played, this one has a nicely controlled bass and a sweet, punchy high end which appeals to me. It's also a very beautiful guitar with Ervin's "Patio Stone" inlays. The guitar is set up for flatpicking or fingerpicking and feels very comfortable played either way.
