OVERVIEW: • Hand Crafted European Guitar • Hiscox Hardcase 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. "If fancy design features are not needed, Model 33 could be the perfect choice, with its exceptional build quality, carefully selected Sitka Spruce top and Indian Rosewood back and sides and our Hand-Brushed Vintage finish." This Vintage style guitar oozes mojo! It’s extremely versatile as you’d expect from an OM and it has the rich full tones you would expect from a rosewood guitar! 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! Hiscox Hard Case Made in the UK to professional standards, this lightweight molded Hardcase usually retails for $299 on it’s own! But each of these guitars comes with one included! 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! • Solid Top: Sitka Spruce • Solid Back And Sides: Indian Rosewood • Binding: Artificial Ivory • Purfling: Herringbone • Rosette: Black & White Triple Ring with Herringbone Inlay • Bridge: Ebony • Bridge Pins: Ebony • Saddle: TUSQ Fully Compensated • String Spacing at the Bridge: 55 mm • Strings: Elixir Ph-Br Nanoweb 12-53 • Top Finish: Vintage Hand-Brushed Finish • Back & Sides Finish: Vintage Hand-Brushed Finish • Pickguard: Tiger-Spot Pick Guard • Nut Width: 43 mm • Scale Length: 650 mm • Fingerboard Material: Ebony • Fingerboard Radius: 400 mm • Fingerboard Inlay: Pearl Quadratic Inlay • Headstock Overlay: Ebony • Neck Material: African Mahogany • Machine Heads: Gotoh SE700-06MXNChrome Patina - Gear Ratio 1:15 • Nut: TUSQ • String Spacing at the Nut: 38 mm • Strings: Elixir Ph-Br Nanoweb 12-53 • Neck Finish: Satin Smooth-Slide Finish • Headstock Finish: Vintage Hand-Brushed Finish • Comes in a Hiscox Hard Shell Case
