Description

This is an extraordinary guitar that we picked up from Julian Gaffney at this years Wodstock guitar show. Julian is a current apprentice in the Somogyi shop, so we can tell you straight out of the gate that Julian has the chops and really understands how to build an exceptional guitar. This is an OM model in East Indian Rosewood and Sitka Spruce. We are always impressed by the quality builders and guitars that comes out of the Somogyi apprenticeship, Julian has done great work here. There is Somogyi vibe that we love, with plenty of Julians own taste thrown in the mix, this is a beautiful piece of art to look at and to hold. The real star here of this guitar is the tone, it has the big sonorous bass that the Somogyi school is known for, with shimmering and round trebles. This is a guitar that you will have no problem getting lost in, as a matter of fact we dare you not to.

I feel in love with this guitar as soon as I played it, I have always had a soft spot for the Somogyi style of guitar. Julian has a really great voice that differs from any of the other Somogyi apprentices, it is balanced with great sustain and harmonics.
 
Very similar to the Somogyi guitars, this cutaway has great range of frequency response and would be an ideal guitar for solo fingerstyle playing. Although, I can see it as an all-purpose guitar for a singer-songwriter as well.
