Default Somogyi Standard Dreadnaught?

Has anybody here ever played - or even seen in person - a standard Somogyi Dread? His website suggests that it's still a model he offers, but I've never heard anything about the guitar. Not a peep, from anyone. Imagining it to sound similar to an MD, but who knows?

🤷 \_(ツ)_/

Can someone confirm it's existence?

I've seen a few in pictures only. One was an early cutaway (was at Luthier's Collection a while back and the pics are still there I believe) and I've seen a couple for sale in Japan.

Existence confirmed :-) Ervin hasn't made one in many years for lack of interest. He still has the molds lying around.

Ive played 2, both from the 80's.
His guitars form the late 90s to early 2000s are his best IMHO.
