Unique voicing process

The premium nature of the Edition Forty is underscored by the fact that both the soundboard and the back plate are individually tuned using the voicing process, our proprietary technology that enhances the instrument’s tonal properties to the highest level. Thanks to that, the Edition Forty has a crystalline clear, harmonically rich, balanced, and highly dynamic sound across the entire tonal spectrum.

Exceptional finish

The instrument is protected by our proprietary Full-Pore High-Gloss Finish, which has been developed to enhance the guitar’s tonal qualities. 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.

More about finish

Vibrant sunburst

The sunburst finish of the Edition Forty adds a beautiful golden touch which seamlessly blends with the brightly colored character of the cocobolo used on the fingerboard, bridge and headstock overlay.

Our wood. Literally.

The back and sides are from an old ash tree which grew in the courtyard of our original factory. It had to be felled during renovation, but fortunately its story did not end there. We chose the best wood suitable for high-quality guitar sets, which we then subjected to years of natural drying. This precious material is now an integral part of our Forty Edition.

Bevel Duo

The ergonomic Bevel Duo feature, comprised of two bevels – one in front, at the forearm and one in the rear, at the rib position, provides a significant increase in player comfort and also enhances the exclusive appearance of the instrument. Bevel Duo is made of Indian rosewood.

To mark our fortieth anniversary, a ‘Forty’ pearl inlay and the limited edition identification number have been added to both bevels.

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.

More about Furch CNR System®

CNR neck Furch Guitars
  1. A fully adjustable dual-action truss rod for highly precise adjustment of the neck bow in both the convex and concave directions.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

Contrast of two continents

One of the progressive design elements of the Edition Forty is the fingerboard featuring distinctly orange Central American cocobolo and black African ebony. At first glance, their juxtaposition is captivating in its unique contrast. We also managed to achieve the same interesting contrast on the bridge and headstock overlay.

Premium soundboard

The soundhole is decorated with a premium ring rosette from Indian rosewood with green abalone inlay. The same material is used for the binding and purfling of the instrument’s soundboard.

Transparent protection

The soundboard of the Edition Forty 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.

Linear position markers

The side of the fingerboard is decorated with exclusive linear position markers from white mother-of-pearl, which increase the visibility of each position.

Excellent machine heads

The Edition Forty has an excellent tuning stability courtesy of Gotoh 510 Silver Patina machine heads with polished ebony buttons and a highly precise 1:21 gear ratio.

High-rigidity Hiscox case

Maximum 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.
