Furch Guitars Expands Little Jane Travel Guitar Range With Four New Models

Furch Guitars announces the expansion of its Little Jane travel guitar model family. The original LJ10-CM Little Jane, Furch’s groundbreaking foldable all-solid-wood travel guitar, now welcomes four new models in 2024, offering unparalleled opportunities of tonal diversity and self-expression to traveling musicians. 

Building on the Success of the Original Little Jane

The LJ10-CM Little Jane travel guitar was first introduced in 2011, featuring a western red cedar top and African mahogany back and sides. Born out of the desire to provide musicians and guitar enthusiasts with a high-quality, portable acoustic that doesn’t compromise on sound quality, it has since consistently ranked as one of Furch’s best-selling models.

Furch Guitars CEO, Petr Furch, elaborates, “At the inception of the concept of a folding travel guitar was the recognition of an unmet need within the music community. Travel guitars have been notorious for their absence of volume, serving merely as practicing tools. Having been an avid Harley rider and guitar player himself, my father required a travel-worthy instrument, which sparked the development of the prototype.” The result of this endeavor was the Little Jane travel guitar, a foldable, travel-friendly instrument that would deliver exceptional sound and playability, named after founder František Furch’s daughter.

During the design and construction of the Little Jane, we utilize all of our know-how, such as resonance-enhancing finishes and individual soundboard voicing. Therefore, despite its compact size, it boasts impressive tonal characteristics and playability that rival even many full-sized guitars. It only made sense to build on its success and expand the range further.”

The LJ11-SR showcases a Sitka spruce top and Indian rosewood back and sides, a revered tonewood pairing among acoustic guitar aficionados. It delivers articulate treble frequencies with superb projection, full-bodied midrange with rich overtones and lush lows with a balanced dynamic response, starting at $ 1,963 / € 1, 983 .

Lastly, the LJ11-SC Limited Edition epitomizes exclusivity and exotic elegance, featuring a Sitka spruce top over visually striking cocobolo back and sides, offering pronounced sustain and a wide dynamic range.

The reception of the original Little Jane throughout the years has been overwhelmingly positive, and we are delighted to expand our travel guitar portfolio by these 4 new models, offering players even more artistic freedom on the road,” Petr Furch concludes.
