Velké Němčice, the Czech Republic – 4 April 2019 – Furch Guitars (Furch), one of the world's leading manufacturers of premium quality guitars, is introducing two new models. Featuring zebrano back and sides, the two new solid all-woods guitars will complement the Blue Series. Zebrawood is an exotic tonewood that has a striking natural appearance, and delivers a pleasing full sound with darker overtones.
The new Furch Blue SA and Furch Blue Plus SA models feature a specially tuned Sitka spruce soundboard, its light color is tastefully complemented by a striking and deeply resonant African zebrawood back and sides. Zebrawood owes its name to its dark brown to black stripes that are reminiscent of a zebra. This combination of Sitka spruce and zebrawood translates into a pleasing sound with balanced mids and an even response across the entire acoustic spectrum. The natural look of these instruments is underscored by a host of additional stylish appointments.
The top is decorated by binding and pickguard made from artificial tortoise. The pickguard also features a transparent extension toward the soundhole. The Furch Blue Plus SA model has a fully transparent pickguard to underscore the fine natural grain of the soundboard. The soundhole is surrounded by a double concentric ring rosette with black walnut inlays. The fingerboard has white mother-of-pearl front and side dot position markers to facilitate orientation.
The guitars are protected by the proprietary Open-Pore Finish, which enhances the natural and visual characteristics of the tonewoods and provides excellent protection. The soundboard of the Furch Blue Plus SA model also features High-Gloss Finish, which consists of an ultra-thin (160 µm) layer of consistent high-gloss UV lacquer that enhances resonance and provides unmatched protection.
The new Furch Blue SA and Furch Blue Plus SA models are now available from all Furch authorized dealers.
