• Hand Crafted European Guitar • LR Baggs Pick-up System • Western Red Cedar/Mahogany – All Solid timbers!
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 OM20 is one such example. Line 20 provides a minimalistic design with maximum sound features. The body is made from all solid materials and an Open-pore coating gives this model a deeper, more natural sound of Western Red Cedar top and African Mahogany back and sides.
The OM20 is, simply put, a great affordable orchestra model. Whilst the famous OM models go for around the $4000 mark – the Line 20 model offers an affordable workhorse for those on a tighter budget. Mahogany and Cedar is a great combination and this guitar oozes charm with its warm tones and easy playability.
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!
The Performer One of the most common questions we get asked here at the Acoustic Inn is “Which guitar shape is the one for me?”
The Orchestra Model (OM) is the modern solo artists preferred body shape of choice. The OM adapts well to both strumming and picking and it’s smaller body shape offers more comfort to the player. The OM is the ultimate performers guitar!
