The Blue Plus SW 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.
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 Plus 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 Plus SW 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, the Blue Plus SW has a crystalline clear, harmonically rich, balanced, and highly dynamic sound across the entire tonal spectrum.
The soundboard of the instrument 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.
The Blue Plus SW owes its attractive natural appearance to binding made from faux tortoise.
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 soundboard of the Blue Plus SW 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.
Rosette made from black walnut
The soundhole is adorned by a rosette featuring a double ring with a black walnut inlay.
The fingerboard of the Blue Plus SW is made from high-quality ebony and features buffed frets with hidden fret leg ends, which allows for high playing comfort.
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.
