  • 6-string acoustic guitar made from high-quality solid tonewoods.
  • Proprietary design features and production technologies, including unique soundboard voicing, revolutionary Furch CNR System® neck joint and resonance enhancing Full-Pore Vintage Hand-Brushed Finish.
  • Stylish vintage appearance featuring appointments made from faux ivory and tortoise, white mother-of-pearl and black walnut.
  • Heavy-duty Hiscox hardshell case.

Unique voicing process

The premium nature of the Vintage 1 SM is underscored by the fact that the soundboard is individually tuned using the voicing process, which enhances the instrument’s tonal properties to the highest level. Thanks to that, the Vintage 1 SM has a crystalline clear, harmonically rich, balanced, and highly dynamic sound across the entire tonal spectrum.

Special hand-brushed finish

The instrument is protected by Full-Pore Vintage Hand-Brushed Finish, a special finish that provides excellent surface protection and accentuates the structure of the wood at the same time. Final hand buffing leaves the guitar with an attractive patina that is reminiscent of aged musical instruments.

Furch CNR System® Neck Design

A high precision, dual-action truss rod maintains neck stability and allows for fine adjustment of the neck relief, bilaterally. The truss rod is housed in a highly rigid carbon casing which enables a very smooth and controlled neck relief, ensuring the best playability and enduring optimal setup.

Stylish appointments

The traditional look of the Vintage 1 SM is underscored by faux tortoise pickguard, double ring rosette with black walnut inlay and body binding made from faux ivory.

Excellent machine heads

The Vintage 1 SM has an excellent tuning stability courtesy of Gotoh SE700 Nickel Patina machine heads with a 1:15 gear ratio.

Pearl position markers

The fretboard features white pearl side position markers and fingerboard inlays that improve fingerboard orientation and enhance the guitar’s exclusive appearance.

High-rigidity Hiscox case

Maximum protection during transport is provided by a high-rigidity Hiscox case with polyurethane insulating foam that shields the instrument from changes in external climatic conditions.

Furch Guitars Specialist
Where do I start?
Furch (Or Stonebridge as they were then known) was the brand that made me realise that what you think you know - isn't always as much as you would hope!  As a guitar specialist I was proud even back then of my experiences and desire to help focus my customers attention to what I believed were the best guitars to buy.  Furch tought me that you can only base your views on the experiences you have had through life - and this is why I now talk about "your truth / my truth".  Your truth on the best guitars out there may be different to mine A) because we simply have different taste but more often than not B) We haven't shared the exact same experiences.
Sadly main stream retail pushes mainstream brands.  This is due to availability and ease of sale due to the masses of marketing that goes into the brand.  As a result all you see is Taylor, Martin, Takamine - you know - you have seen them in every major outlet!!!
So what about Furch?  World class.  Pretty much sums them up for me!  
From as little as £849 for an all solid acoustic guitar that has tone and feel to die for.  Out of this world.
Made in the Czech Republic and I have been promoting them for at least 15 years now.
We are the UKS largest, dedicated Furch guitar specialist.  I chat with the UK distributor on an almost daily basis and have all the stock information to hand.
All I ask is that before you spend your hard earned money on a mainstream guitar brand - start investigating FURCH.  Check out Youtube videos - read my customer reviews from over the years and listen to PLAYERS.... Not retailers!
In the video below I show you the guitar I mentioned before.  The Furch Blue G  CMC.  A top personal recommendation for anyone wanting a World Class acoustic under £1000.
