FURCH BLUE SERIES GC SITKA SPRUCE BLACK WALNUT


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.

Furch's BLUE Series stands out thanks to a strong open tone matched by simple tasteful appointments. This all solid-wood guitar is one of our house favourites and is built with sitka spruce and black walnut. The sitka spruce top gives the guitar a powerful, direct tone that is capable of retaining clarity even when played aggressively. It exhibits a wide dynamic response and a robust, meaty tone.

Black walnut produces excellent balance, with tonal characteristics that fall between mahogany and rosewood. The trebles have a unique earthy tone which records very distinctively and is often recommended for a flat-picked sound and mellow finger-style playing.

We will strongly encourage one to try one of these if you are out for a workhorse at this budget. The tone and quality of build consistently outshines many guitars costing much more.
