BLUE SW guitars feature a solid-wood construction that combines Sitka spruce and black walnut. They have a fine attractive appearance and produce a musical sound with pleasing mids and transparent highs.
The soundboard of BLUE SW models is made from high-grade Sitka spruce. The back and sides feature high-quality black walnut. Open-Pore Finish leaves wood pores exposed, which preserves the natural acoustic properties of tonewoods. This combination of high-quality solid tonewoods and proprietary finishes produces a beautiful musical sound across the entire tonal range, with balanced midrange frequencies.
The premium nature of Furch BLUE SW guitars is underscored by the fact that the soundboard is tuned using the voicing process, which enhances the guitar's tonal properties to the highest level. Thanks to that, Furch BLUE SW guitars have a crystalline clear, harmonically rich, balanced, and highly dynamic sound across the entire tonal spectrum.
Furch BLUE SW guitars feature Open-Pore Finish, a special thin finish that promotes the natural sonic qualities of tonewoods and provides an excellent level of surface protection. The finish accentuates low frequencies and produces a natural woody sound.
Furch BLUE SW owes its attractive appearance to binding made from artificial tortoise.
The soundhole is adorned by a rosette featuring a decorative ring with black and white lines.
Furch BLUE SW guitars are protected by a artificial tortoise pickguard, which has been redesigned by the addition of a transparent extension toward the soundhole. The new pickguard shape provides better soundboard protection without disrupting the rosette pattern.
A high precision dual-action truss rod maintains neck stability and allows fine adjustments of the neck relief in both directions. The truss rod is installed in a carbon casing filled with silicone to prevent undesirable vibrations and to ensure smooth action.
The fingerboard of Furch BLUE SW guitars is made from high-quality ebony and features buffed frets with hidden fret leg ends, which allows for high playing comfort.
