The soundboard of Furch Blue SA model is made from high-grade Sitka spruce. The back and sides feature high-quality zebrawood. 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 darker tones.

Unique voicing process

The premium nature of Furch Blue SA guitar 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, Furch Blue SA guitar has a crystalline clear, harmonically rich, balanced, and highly dynamic sound across the entire tonal spectrum.

Open-Pore Finish

Exquisite Exotic Woods

The back and sides are made from zebrawood, a striking African tonewood that produces a deep sound and has a distinct yellow or golden brown color with dark brown to black growth rings.

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®

Furch Blue SA
  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.

Stylish binding

Furch Blue SA owes its attractive appearance to binding made from artificial tortoise.

Rosette made of black walnut

The soundhole is adorned by a rosette featuring a double ring with black walnut inlay.

Effective protection

Furch Blue SA guitar is protected by a artificial tortoise pickguard, which has been redesigned by the addition of a transparent extension toward the soundhole. This pickguard shape provides better soundboard protection without disrupting the rosette pattern.
