Blue Baritone SW

Sitka Spruce / Black Walnut

  • High-quality acoustic guitar made from carefully select solid woods.
  • Proprietary design features and production technologies, including soundboard voicing, the revolutionary Furch CNR System® neck joint, and Open-Pore Finish.
  • Refined warm appearance featuring a rosette with a black walnut inlay, and faux tortoise pickguard and body binding.

Baritone models are optimized to be tuned a perfect fourth lower than a regular guitar. The strings are tuned to low B , E, A, D, F#, and high B, and the fingerboard scale is extended by 60 mm from the standard 650 mm to 710 mm. Baritone guitars feature the standard BARc body shape, i.e. BAR with cutaway, and a modified bracing pattern for the best possible sound quality in the low register.

The soundboard of the Blue SW is made from high-grade Sitka spruce. The back and sides feature high-quality black walnut. Open-Pore Finish leaves wood pores exposed, which preserves the natural acoustic properties of tonewoods. This combination of high-quality solid tonewoods and proprietary finish produces a beautiful musical sound across the entire tonal range, with balanced midrange frequencies.

Remarkable sound

Sound is the most important consideration for Furch guitars. Their excellent acoustic qualities are the result of state-of-the art technologies, proprietary production processes and precision craftsmanship combined with the use of the best available tonewoods. The Blue SW is no fluke. Hear its exceptional sound quality for yourself with Tonepedia’s app. You can compare its unique sound with other Furch models and also guitars from other manufacturers.

Unique voicing process

The premium nature of the Blue SW is underscored by the fact that the soundboard is individually tuned using the voicing process, which enhances the guitar’s tonal properties to the highest level. Thanks to that, the Blue SW has a crystalline clear, harmonically rich, balanced, and highly dynamic sound across the entire tonal spectrum.

Open-Pore Finish

The instrument features Open-Pore Finish, a special thin finish that promotes the natural sonic qualities of tonewoods and provides an excellent level of surface protection. The finish accentuates low frequencies and produces a natural woody sound.

Furch CNR System® Neck Design

A 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.
