The Vintage 3 SR is the flagship of the Vintage Series. Made from the very best premium materials with meticulous attention to every last detail, the guitar not only delivers a superb sound, courtesy of soundboard voicing, but numerous appointments lend it a classy look. Like all other Vintage guitars, the Vintage 3 SR features a solid-wood construction that combines a Sitka spruce soundboard and Indian rosewood back and sides.
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 Vintage 3 SR 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 Vintage 3 SR 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 Vintage 3 SR has a crystalline clear, harmonically rich, balanced, and highly dynamic sound across the entire tonal spectrum.
Special hand-brushed finish
The instrument is protected by Full-Pore Vintage Finish, a special finish that provides excellent surface protection and accentuates the structure of the wood at the same time. Final hand buffing leaves the guitar with an attractive patina that is reminiscent of aged musical instruments.
The attractive look of the Vintage 3 SR is underscored by body, headstock, and fingerboard binding made from koa with a contrasting line, and a top adorned by herringbone purfling.
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.
Rosette made of abalone
The soundhole is adorned by a rosette featuring a double ring with a green abalone inlay and a contrasting black and white line.
Emphasis on detail
The headstock of the Vintage 3 SR is adorned by a Madagascar rosewood overlay.
Excellent machine heads
The guitar has an excellent tuning stability courtesy of Gotoh SE700 Gold Patina machine heads with a 1:15 gear ratio.
Pearl position markers
White pearl side position markers and fingerboard inlays improve fingerboard orientation and enhance the guitar’s exclusive appearance.
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.
