The Red Deluxe SR is the proverbial icing on the cake in our portfolio. This instrument features master-grade Sitka spruce on the soundboard and Indian rosewood on the back and sides. The combination of these materials along with our advanced production technologies gives it a beautiful, versatile sound with clear and open tones. Both the top and the back plate are complemented by the ergonomic Bevel Duo in koa which provides maximum comfort even during extended play. The beauty of these tonewoods is underscored by a high-gloss finish, as well as a number of decorative details such the binding and premium rosette in koa, abalone purfling and pearl Roman numerals inlay on the fingerboard. The guitar comes enclosed in a highly durable Hiscox case.
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 Red Deluxe SR is no fluke.

Unique voicing process
The premium nature of the Red Deluxe SR 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 Red Deluxe SR has a crystalline clear, harmonically rich, balanced, and highly dynamic sound across the entire tonal spectrum.
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.
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.
Premium quality material
The Red Deluxe SR is made from master grade tonewoods. The soundboard features Sitka spruce, which lends the guitar beautifully bright and open sound. The back and sides are made from Indian rosewood.
Beauty of exotic wood
The extraordinary look of the guitar is underscored by a figured ziricote bridge, fingerboard, and headstock overlay. The body, fingerboard, and headstock feature koa binding with a white contrasting line. Koa was also used on a tail decoration and a premium rosette with abalone inlay.
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.
Pearl fingerboard inlay
The fingerboard of the Red Deluxe SR is decorated with a contrasting pearl inlay of Roman numerals, which together with the side linear position marks also help to increase the visibility of the individual positions.
The soundboard 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.
Excellent machine heads
The Red Deluxe SR 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.
