Blue Deluxe SW
Sitka Spruce / Black Walnut
- Bevel Duo ergonomic feature for maximum playing comfort.
- Proprietary design features and production technologies, including unique soundboard voicing and revolutionary Furch CNR System® neck joint.
- Stylish appearance featuring dark-colored appointments.
The Blue Deluxe SW is made from carefully selected tonewoods that produce clear and open tones, finely balanced across the entire tonal spectrum. The soundboard features Sitka spruce, the back and sides are from black walnut. Both plates are complemented by the ergonomic Bevel Duo feature, which provides maximum comfort even during prolonged play. The beautiful natural appearance of the Blue Deluxe SW is underscored by open-pore finish and a host of delicate dark-colored appointments, such as double ring rosette with black walnut inlay, black body binding and black pickguard.
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 Deluxe 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 Deluxe SW 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 Blue Deluxe SW has a crystalline clear, harmonically rich, balanced, and highly dynamic sound across the entire tonal spectrum.
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.
Bevel Duo for extra comfort
The black Bevel Duo ergonomic 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. We use modern 3D printing technology during its creation which allows us to manfacture it with maximum precision.
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.
- 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 dark appointments
The soundboard of the Blue Deluxe SW is adorned by a rosette featuring a double ring with a black walnut inlay. Black color was also used on body binding and pickguard.
Pearl position markers
The ebony fingerboard is adorned with pearl front dot and side linear position markers that improve fingerboard orientation and enhance the guitar’s stylish appearance.
For maximum protection during transport, we highly recommend to provide every new Furch guitar with a high-rigidity Hiscox case with a highly impact-resistant ABS outer shell and interior polyurethane padding, or with the first-class gigbag with additional shell reinforcements in the walls, and other special features for comfortable carrying on the shoulder, in hand, or as a backpack.
The Hiscox case can be purchased for a suggested retail price of $331, and the gigbag for a suggested retail prices of $105.
