Product Description

The Green SR has a soundboard made from carefully selected Sitka spruce, back and sides feature Indian rosewood. The entire body is protected by Furch’s proprietary Full-Pore Satin Finish, developed to enhance the resonance qualities of tonewoods. The combination of finish and tonewoods provides a rich balanced sound across the entire tonal range with sparkling highs.

Furch 12-string models offer a very rich and full sound and feature an extra string that doubles the six strings of a regular guitar. The extra strings for the low E, A, D, and G strings have a lighter gauge and are tuned one octave higher, whereas the B and high E strings are doubled by strings with the same gauge that are tuned to the same pitch. Because the angle at which each string passes over the saddle has a considerable effect on the sound, the angle must be the same for all of the strings. The solution typically used on 12-string guitars, which uses two rows of six standard bridge pins, cannot achieve this because the angle at which the strings pass over the bridge is different for each of the two rows. Furch’s proprietary solution features each of the main strings attached with a standard bridge pin, while each of the extra strings passes through a channel from the rear end of the bridge to a point behind the saddle that ensures that the string crosses the saddle at the same angle as the main string. This way, the string break angle is the same for each string, which translates into uniform resonance properties for all 12 strings.

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

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.

The guitar’s body is coated with an ultra-thin and consistent UV Full-Pore Satin Finish, which Furch designed to maximize the resonant properties of the instrument while providing excellent protection. The foundation of the surface treatment is Furch’s own high-gloss varnish, the final layer of which Furch luthiers apply with a matte finish. Thus, the guitar acquires a beautiful, slightly matte appearance.

The soundboard of the Green SR owes its stylish look to a combination of faux tortoise body binding and a rosette featuring a double ring with a black walnut inlay. White pearl side position markers and fingerboard inlays improve fingerboard orientation and enhance the guitar’s stylish appearance.

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.
