FURCH G22-LM SWISS SPRUCE HONDURAS MAHOGANY


We are extremely proud to present a custom entry Furch guitar with specifications that will stand up to many guitars over twice its value. Made possible by our great friends at Furch, we have this shipment of Furch guitars built with Swiss alpine spruce top, a top wood often available only through smaller boutique builders.

Harvested from the Swiss Alps, Swiss alpine spruce has some of the best characteristics of a really good Adirondack top but also the responsiveness and bell-like tone of Engelmann. It shines in fingerstyle and hybrid picking and handles moderate strumming with ease, making it a great all-rounder

Prized by luthiers for its quick response and great headroom. This light weight top projects harmonic complexity and offers unparalleled fullness at the lower end of the dynamic range, allowing for rich bell-like tones across a wide tonal spectrum. Aesthetically, It enjoys the added advantage of a gorgeous colour and uniformity in grain over Adirondack red spruce tops, another Holy Grail of topwoods for steel-string guitars.

Honduras mahogany was chosen to complement the back and sides as they offer a clean, punchy and woody tone. They are warmer sounding than most guitars built with sepele or ovangkol and age very well over time to give a much desired airiness.

Other discerning features include a true ebony fingerboard, optional LR Baggs Element Active electronic pickup (With volume and tone control) and improved bracings for a bigger tone and improved structural stability.
