Are you a fan of traditional guitar design? If so, you should not miss Furch's Vintage 1 SM! This guitar is crafted from high-quality Sitka spruce and African mahogany. Together with innovative production technologies, these woods give the guitar a perfectly balanced sound with slightly accentuated highs and soft bass. The traditional vintage look of the guitar is underscored by a number of natural appointments and our resonance enhancing Full-Pore Satin Finish.Unique voicing processThe premium nature of the Vintage 1 SM is underscored by the fact that the soundboard is individually tuned using the voicing process, which enhances the instrument’s tonal properties to the highest level. Thanks to that, the Vintage 1 SM has a crystalline clear, harmonically rich, balanced, and highly dynamic sound across the entire tonal spectrum. Resonance enhancing satin finishThe guitar’s body is coated with an ultra-thin and consistent UV Full-Pore Satin Finish, which we designed to maximize the resonant properties of the instrument while providing excellent protection. The foundation of the surface treatment is our high-gloss varnish, the final layer of which we apply with a matte finish. Thus, the guitar acquires a beautiful, slightly matte appearance. Furch CNR System® Neck DesignA high precision, dual-action truss rod maintains neck stability and allows for fine adjustment of the neck relief, bilaterally. The truss rod is housed in a highly rigid carbon casing which enables a very smooth and controlled neck relief, ensuring the best playability and enduring optimal setup. A fully adjustable dual-action truss rod for highly precise adjustment of the neck bow in both the convex and concave directions.A highly rigid carbon casing that maintains the neck in the set position over a period much longer than is the case with standard neck joint designs and, at the same time, facilitates a gradual bow in the neck, a factor of essential importance for playability.A casting made of special alloy located inside the neck heel that ensures a stable position of the neck and its angle vis-à-vis the body. Stylish appointmentsThe traditional look of the Vintage 1 SM is underscored by double ring rosette with black walnut inlay and body binding made from faux ivory. Excellent machine headsThe Vintage 1 SM has an excellent tuning stability courtesy of Gotoh SE700 Nickel Patina machine heads with a 1:15 gear ratio. Pearl position markersThe fretboard features white pearl side position markers and fingerboard inlays that improve fingerboard orientation and enhance the guitar’s exclusive appearance.High-rigidity Hiscox caseMaximum protection during transport is provided by a high-rigidity Hiscox case with polyurethane insulating foam that shields the instrument from changes in external climatic conditions.
