Furch Guitars has launched a completely new range of ‘colour series’ acoustic guitars plus Rainbow series premium instruments. The new line-up replaces Furch’s current Millennium models. The company has also launched a revived Vintage series.
The seven new model lines – RED, ORANGE, YELLOW, GREEN, BLUE, INDIGO, and VIOLET feature the recently announced Furch CNR System, a revolutionary neck design that the maker claims guarantees lasting stability and allows the neck relief to be adjusted with greater degree of accuracy. It also includes features such as soundboard voicing, which tunes the top plate to achieve superior acoustic properties, highly consistent ultra-thin finish, and high-precision robotic polishing.
‘For us, guitar making is much more than just a business. Building guitars is our passion and a challenge at the same time,’ says Petr Furch. ‘We constantly work on improvements and look for ways to take the quality of our instruments to a yet higher level. In the past three years, we have developed and successfully tested several revolutionary designs. To let the world know that these new features have been incorporated into production, we’ve decided to change the names of our guitar models. Considering how much care goes into the crafting of every single Furch guitar, our guitars now bear names that evoke the emotional and passionate nature of music making.’
Each of the new colour series models features a unique combination of materials, finish, and appointments. The top-of-the-line RED series features high-grade tonewoods, top and back tuning, ‘captivating unconventional adornments’, and a High-Gloss finish. Conversely, the VIOLET series includes instruments with a solid top, Open-Pore Finish, and scaled-back appointments.
‘The new model lines were created based on the success of our established models,’ Furch adds. ‘The color series includes direct descendants of guitars we have been offering until now as well as several brand new models. The color series includes 19 all solid woods guitars and three guitars featuring both solid and layered woods, each of which is a top-quality instrument that differs from other models by its sound and overall design.’
The seven colour series model lines are complemented by the RAINBOW premium series, which allows players to handpick the features of their guitar and order a fully custom instrument. The RAINBOW series starts with a base master-grade model that can be customized using options from the list of custom features.
Meanwhile, Furch’s Vintage Series, which features guitars with a traditional design, has also been completely revamped. The previous line-up has been replaced with guitars designated as Vintage 1 to 3, which come in a combination of a Sitka spruce soundboard and Indian rosewood back and sides.
