Furch presents a premium guitar designed for fingerstyle players
The first custom guitar receiving the new Bevel Duo is the all solid-wood Furch Rainbow Gc-CC Grand Auditorium cutaway, which was designed specifically for passionate fingerstyle players. The instrument’s top plate is from premium Cedar, with back and sides in Cocobolo. The rich and dynamic performance of the guitar is further enhanced by the application of proprietary design and production methods, namely individual voicing process of both top and back plates and application of Furch’s Full-Pore High-Gloss Finish, which serves to further improve the instrument’s acoustic properties. A high degree of comfort during play is ensured by the combination of the D neck profile and the ergonomic Bevel Duo.
The beautiful appearance of the Furch Rainbow Gc-CC is accentuated by a host of decorative appointments from Indian Rosewood, which include the annular rosette, back central strip, wedge tail decoration and body, fingerboard and headstock binding. The fingerboard, bridge and headstock overlay are from exotic Ebony. Additional adornments are front pearl neck inlays in Roman numerals and side pearl linear position markers for increased visibility of each position. To ensure the best tuning possible, the guitar is equipped with Gotoh 510 tuners in gold finish with ebony buttons and a fine ratio of 1:21.
The Furch Rainbow Gc-CC was made exclusively for the Women of Fingerstyle Guitar concert presented by Fretmonkey Records, scheduled for January 16th at the House of Blues in Anaheim. The guitar will be auctioned simultaneously online and at the concert, with the proceeds going to the Grammy MusiCares Foundation, which assists musicians in times of need. The retail price of this instrument is $6,711, the auctions bidding will start at just $1,500. Those interested can view the guitar at NAMM 2020 at Furch Guitars booth 2307, on the day of the concert.
