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 price & 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 Violet Gc-CM – Masters Choice. To break this down, Violet is the series (with the different series being Red, Yellow, Green, Blue & Violet), Gc meaning the body shape – a Grand Auditorium with cutaway, and finally ‘SM’ – these are the woods, Sitka Spruce & African Mahogany.

In each range, the Master’s Choice model is a particular model the luthiers at Furch believe is their favoured instrument within that series. A, LR Baggs Stagepro Element pickup is fitted as standard to the guitar. A classic side mounted design, it is chosen for ease of use on stage, delivering a warm pristine sound, with all the adjustment you would need.

The body is finished in Furch’s own Open-Pore finish, that lets the natural sonic qualities of the wood come through, whilst providing excellent surface protection. The Spruce soundboard is complemented by the black pickguard and body binding. The soundhole features a annular rosette also in black.

The guitar can be supplied with a extremely high quality Furch Gig Bag for an additional $100 (normally $199), or we have a range of hard shell cases available.

In line with Furch’s Environmental commitments, the carbon footprint of this guitar is 11.7kg (reduced from over 29kg).
