Sitka Spruce / Black Walnut
Furch Blue Plus SW guitar features a soundboard made from high-grade Sitka spruce and high-quality black walnut back and sides. The soundboard is protected by Full-Pore High-Gloss Finish. The back and sides feature Open-Pore Finish, which leaves wood pores exposed. This combination of high-quality solid tonewoods and proprietary finishes produces a beautiful musical sound across the entire tonal range, with balanced midrange frequencies.
The soundboard of Furch Blue Plus Master’s Choice guitar is protected by our proprietary Full-Pore High-Gloss Finish, which has been developed to enhance the tonal properties of the guitar body. The finish consists of an ultrathin layer of highly resistant lacquer that provides excellent surface protection and accentuates the structure of the wood at the same time. The back and sides feature Open-Pore Finish, a special thin finish that promotes the natural tonal qualities of tonewoods and provides an excellent level of surface protection. The finish accentuates low frequencies and produces a natural woody sound.
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.
The soundhole is adorned by a rosette featuring a double ring with a black walnut inlay.
The soundboard is protected by a transparent pickguard that allows the natural beauty of the wood to shine through. The pickguard is designed to have no effect on the tonal qualities of the soundboard.
The Furch Blue Plus guitar comes with a first-class soft case featuring additional shell reinforcements in the walls. It provides a high level of protection thanks to soft padding and solid reinforcing panels, and offers excellent ergonomics and carrying options, including side and front carry handles and shoulder straps.
