We are excited to announce the arrival of Furch guitars to New Zealand, after being appointed the exclusive retailer for this top of the line European built guitar brand.

Handcrafted in the Czech Republic, Furch is trending in a competitive field of high quality acoustic guitars, with artists such as Al Di Meola, Suzanne Vega, Glen Hansaard, and David Knopfler among their enthusiastic endorsers.

Innovative design, high quality tonewoods, and a stellar commitment to environmental sustainability has helped Furch build a great reputation in Europe & the US, gaining sales from the established brands in this price point.

Organized via a colour series coding system, these guitars start at  the entry level Violet range and progressing upward through Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange, and Red series, with a broad choice of body styles and increasing levels in quality of tonewoods and appointments. There is also a Vintage Series for those looking for top tier alternative to a mid/high end traditional acoustic.

The soundboard is individually tuned on each guitar using Furch’s voicing process which enhances the guitar’s tonal properties to the highest level, giving the guitar a crystalline clear, harmonically rich, balanced and highly dynamic sound across the tonal spectrum.

An issue we see with many mid-high end guitars is the need for neck resets. Furch’s CNR Neck Design is something we are excited about as this system virtually guarantees a reset won’t ever be needed. A high precision, dual -action truss road maintains neck stability and allows for fine adjustment of the neck bilaterally. The truss rod is housed in a highly rigid carbon casing which enables a very smooth & controlled adjustment, ensuring the best playability and optimal setup. This really is a gamechanger – and to find out more, see the video at the bottom of this listing.

This guitar is Orange OMc-SR - Master's Choice. To break this down, Orange is the series (with the different series being Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue & Violet), OMc meaning the body shape – an Orchestra Model with cutaway, and finally ‘SR’ – these are the woods, Sitka Spruce and Indian Rosewood. Sadly, the Orange series has been discontinued, so this is the very last one we'll get!

In each range, the Master’s Choice model is a particular model the luthiers at Furch believe is their favoured instrument within that series. An LR Baggs Stagepro Anthem pickup is fitted as standard to the guitar. A cutting-edge design, which combines a bridge pickup, an internal microphone, and a side-mounted preamp for maximum tone-scaping!

The body is finished in Furch’s own Full-Pore High Gloss finish, developed to enhance the resonance qualities of the wood. It is a ultrathin layer of highly resistant lacquer providing excellent protection for the guitar and at the same time, accentuating the structure of the wood.

The beautiful look of the guitar is underscored by body, headstock and fingerboard binding made from American Maple, and the top adorned with Redheart purfling, and soundhole rosette, also from Redheart. A transparent pickguard designed to have no effect on the tonal properties of the guitar protects the guitar, while allowing the natural beauty of the wood come through. White pearl side position dots combined with Furch’s Flower fingerboard inlays featuring a thin white pearl contour line, improve fingerboard orientation and enhance the guitar’s beautiful appearance.

Hardware is courtesy of Gotoh 510 Silver Patina machine heads with Ebony buttons and the highly precise 1:21 ratio.

Finally, to protect this fantastic instrument, a high quality Hiscox case is supplied.

In line with Furch’s Environmental commitments, the carbon footprint of this guitar is 18.2kg (reduced from over 45kg).
