Furch Guitars is offering players the chance to specify their next guitar from a huge range of options and have it built exactly to the way they want. The guitars come under Furch’s new Rainbow Custom label and the range of options on offer is impressive.
Furch Rainbow Custom guitars feature a top-notch base configuration, which includes a Sitka spruce soundboard and Indian rosewood back and sides. Both tonewoods are of master grade quality, the highest available quality, Furch says. The base design can be customised using more than 160 varied features that include body shape, number of strings, materials, appointments, finish, tuning machines, and pickups and electronics. The available custom features can be combined in various ways to create as many as 25,000 different guitar designs.
‘Demand for custom guitars has been growing steadily in the past 10 years. Last year, guitars with an above-average number of custom features accounted for about six percent of our production. We expect that this figure will be even higher this year. The new Rainbow line responds to the continually growing demand for custom models, and it provides players with an unprecedented freedom to design their dream guitar. Guitarists are no longer limited to choosing one of the standard models in our portfolio. They can design their instrument essentially from scratch using a long list of custom features,’ says Petr Furch, CEO of Furch Guitars.
Even though each Rainbow guitar is to a large extent unique, all Rainbow instruments share top quality premium tonewoods and state-of-the-art production technologies, such as top and back voicing, proprietary extra thin and extra resistant UV finish, and the unique Furch CNR System neck joint, which the maker says increases long-term neck stability by as much as 90%.
