Always pushing to outdo themselves, Petr Furch has surprised us once again with innovations to the voicing of each guitar. Tuned using their new proprietary voicing process, the new Furch models carry a tone that is even more crystalline clear, harmonically rich and balanced compared to its predecessors.
The Vintage 1 orchestra model (OM) is Furch's simplest rendition of the classic om. Don't be fooled however as under the unstated design is a guitar which is very much focused on playability and tone. Furch's new proprietary voicing makes this a serious pick for anyone out with a budget but wishes to enjoy the balance and articulation that is found on guitars of this shape.
