2018 Somogyi OM, Brazilian Rosewood/European Spruce
SOLDAdd to Compare
It’s perfect, really. This 2018 Somogyi OM comes to us as close to new as you can get without the wait list. Ervin’s Brazilian Rosewood stash still has a few quarter sawn gems that hearken back to prewar days, like the set used here. Chocolate-dark, straight and stable. Ervin paired that with a warm European Spruce top, bound it together with Brazilian Rosewood, and ringed in the soundhole with one of his segmented marquetry rosettes. The iconic Somogyi bridge also comes from Brazilian Rosewood, and the 14-fret Mahogany neck has a short, 24.9 inch scale for easy playability.
This Somogyi is a dream guitar, plain and simple. We know you hear that a lot, but there’s something about this OM that feels different, and sound different, than just about anything else. Ervin’s penchant for clarity, bass response, and sustain is here in full strength.
This 2018 Somogyi is a rare and precious guitar, and we can’t stress enough how beautiful it is with this guitar under your hands.
