The Blue Master’s Choice is a high-quality all-solid-woods guitar in the Grand Auditorium shape with cutaway. The guitar features a Western red cedar soundboard, and the back and sides are made from carefully selected African mahogany. Appointments include a walnut double ring rosette, and faux tortoise pickguard and body binding. This tonewood combination and the Furch Open-Pore Finish lend the instrument a beautiful natural appearance and a warm musical sound that is balanced across the entire tonal spectrum with slightly emphasized lows.
The Blue Master’s Choice is fitted with the LR Baggs Stagepro Element system, which features a side-mounted preamp with a tuner.
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 Master’s Choice 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 Master’s Choice is underscored by the fact that the soundboard is individually tuned using our proprietary voicing process that enhances the instrument’s tonal properties to the highest level. Thanks to that, the Blue Master’s Choice 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.
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.
The stylish amber look of the cedar soundboard is underscored by faux tortoise pickguard and body binding. The soundhole is adorned by a rosette featuring a double ring with a black walnut inlay.
LR Baggs Stagepro Element pickup
The Blue Master’s Choice comes with LR Baggs Stagepro Element, which is an upgraded version of the LR Baggs Element Active System – Volume Tone Control. The additional features of the Stagepro Element include a side-mounted preamp with a three-band equalizer and phase inversion as well as a sensitive onboard tuner. With a clean classy look, the Stagepro Element pickup system provides easy battery access and includes Garrett Null notch filter that delivers a warm pristine sound even under the most challenging conditions.
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.
