Furch has added two new models to its Red Series acoustic line: the Red LC and Red SR. These guitars come with features previously exclusive to custom models, including choice tonewoods, premium features and Furch’s proprietary technology.
Tonewoods and design
The Red LC comes with an Alpine spruce soundboard combined with cocobolo back and sides. In comparison, the Red SR features a Sitka spruce soundboard with Indian rosewood back and sides. Both instruments use Central American Ziricote for the bridge, fingerboard and headstock overlay.
Both also feature Hawaiian koa and green abalone inlay to accentuate the guitars’ rosette, body, fingerboard and headstock binding. Rounding out the premium design features are leaf-shaped, abalone and mother-of-pearl inlays on the headstock and fingerboard, respectively.
The Red LC and SR guitars were crafted with Furch’s proprietary construction and production technologies. Among them is Furch’s CNR System neck reinforcement design, which uses a high-precision dual-action truss rod to “maintain neck stability and allow fine adjustments of the neck relief in both directions”, according to the brand.
The Red LC is available from €4,266, while the Red SR is available from €3,189. More info at furchguitars.com.
