We are proud to be the exclusive distributor of Furch guitars in New Zealand.

Handcrafted in the Czech Republic, Furch has been making premium acoustic guitars since 1981. They have gained huge popularity all over the world and landed in the hands of artists such as Al Di Meola, Suzanne Vega, Glen Hansaard, and David Knopfler. Innovative design, high quality tonewoods, and a stellar commitment to environmental sustainability has helped Furch build a reputation for incredible tone and reliability.

Every Furch stands out thanks to their unique voicing process; each guitar's soundboard is individually tuned to enhance it's tonal properties to the highest level. This process produces a crystalline clear, harmonically rich, and highly dynamic sound across the tonal spectrum.

In addition to Furch's techniques for sonic maximization, they have also tackled the age old problem of neck resets! Furch's revolutionary CNR System® consists of a high precision dual-action truss rod placed inside a carbon casing, combined with a highly rigid composite neck heel. The innovative design offers unparalleled stability, and because it is very rigid, the neck joint of Furch guitars doesn't require heavy reinforcements, making it much lighter than traditional designs, and allowing a larger area of the soundboard to resonate freely and produce better tone.

Furch's core line of guitars is their Colour Series; Violet, Blue, Green, Yellow and Red, covering a huge range of materials and designs across multiple price points. Whether looking for a stripped back all-solid guitar with the Violet series, or a premium acoustic with exotic tonewoods and detailing with the Red series, Furch has options for every player.

 

This guitar is a Blue OMc-SW

The soundboard of the Blue SW is made from high-grade Sitka spruce. The back and sides feature high-quality black walnut. Open-Pore Finish leaves wood pores exposed, which preserves the natural acoustic properties of tonewoods. This combination of high-quality solid tonewoods and proprietary finish produces a beautiful musical sound across the entire tonal range, with balanced midrange frequencies.

The Blue SW is available in D (Dreadnaught), G (Grand Auditorium) or OM (Orchestra Model) with or without cutaway, in 7 string, 9 string, 12 string or Baritone models. Left-handed versions of these are also available at the same price as the right-handed model.

Furch often ship their guitars from the factory with electronics and pickups installed, however we have elected instead to offer pickups as an optional extra. One bit of feedback we often get is that people love their instrument, but have a favoured pickup system, often NOT the one included with their instrument. To give the maximum flexibility for your guitar, we can install any of the following from stock into your Furch: (additional cost applies for the pickup, but installation is free when the pickup is purchased from us).

  • LR Baggs Element VTC / LR Baggs Stagepro Element / LR Baggs Anthem (Not the cheaper SL Model) / LR Baggs Stagepro Anthem
  • K&K Pure Mini / K&K UltraPure / K&K Trinity Pro
  • Fishman Matrix Infinity VT / Fishman Matrix Infinity Mic Blend
  • Or purchase acoustically and install whichever pickup you desire!

Furch gig bags are also available at additional cost - please enquire for availability.
