All I can tell you is DON'T EVER buy another acoustic until you have visited us!!!

The Uks Longest serving & Largest Furch Guitar Centre
From 899, I was recommending these breathtaking acoustic guitars 20 years ago when nobody had heard of them. To this day they remain some of my most popular personal recommendations - These days its more common knowledge that you get twice the guitar from Furch than a mainstream mass marketed brand but online stores will always sell you the "easy sell" - The mass produced guitars with massive marketing budgets. Visit us and listen and feel what you can really buy for your money - or read our reviews of course!
