Hand Crafted European Guitar
Furch guitars are steeped in history. When Frantisek Furch first started making guitars in 1981, private enterprise was repressed by the communist government of his native Czechoslovakia. However, that didn’t stop Frantisek from honing his craft, he simply took to his garage to make his guitars in secret. The renegade luthier – what a story!
The secrecy stopped in 1989 following the velvet revolution. Furch guitars opened their first factory with just one employee in the newly formed Czech Republic. Fast forward more than 30 years and Furch guitars are amongst the finest in the world.
The G21 is one such example. The 21 Series guitars feature solid spruce tops and solid walnut bodies, as well as standard premium Furch appointments like ebony fretboard and bridge. The natural feeling of this instrument is underlined by the Open-Pore finish.
The 21 series offers such a consistent standard of guitars that it’s hard to choose between them! The G21 is a beautiful player and has the presence that you have come to expect from other popular Grand Auditorium guitars.
LR Bagg’s Element Active system
Here at the Acoustic Inn, we love the LR Bagg’s pick up system. We highly recommend it to any player looking for a world class pick up system that doesn’t colour the tone of your guitar but really just shows off it’s natural tonal beauty.
So you can imagine how excited we were to discover that Furch include these pick up systems as an option on all of their guitars. It’s a classy and discreet addition – you’d hardly know it was there at a glance! With two controls in the sound hole (volume, tone) and an endpin jack it’s simplistic yet powerful!
One of the most common questions we get asked here at the Acoustic Inn is “Which guitar shape is the one for me?”
The Grand Auditorium sits somewhere between the OM and the Dreadnought in terms of its actual size. With the big bottom of a dreadnought but slightly pinched top half of the body it’s one of the most diverse body shapes. It really is an all purpose guitar, whether it be on stage or in the studio, finger picking or strumming – the Grand Auditorium can do it all.
