Product Description

The Violet SM does not compromise on sound or workmanship. The soundboard of the instrument is made from carefully selected Sitka spruce, whose excellent acoustic properties are further enhanced by Furch’s innovative individual voicing process. The back and sides are made from African mahogany. This combination gives the guitar a perfectly balanced sound with clear highs, warm bass and long-lasting sustain. It is thus ideal for delicate fingerstyle as well as more aggressive flatpicking or strumming. The Violet SM is made exclusively from solid wood. The soundboard comes from carefully selected Sitka spruce and the back and sides are made from African mahogany. This combination makes the Violet SM a superbly tuned instrument with a long sustain.

The premium nature of the Violet 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 Violet SM 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 spruce soundboard of the Violet SM is decorated with black binding, black pickguard and an annular rosette in a contrasting black design. In addition to a number of dark appointments, the beautiful natural appearance of the instrument is further enhanced by Furch’s Open-Pore Finish, which leaves the deep pores of the wood open. Furch’s Open-Pore Finish is a special thin finish that promotes the natural sonic qualities of tonewoods and provides an excellent level of surface protection.

The ebony fingerboard of the guitar is equipped with special shortened frets which deliberately do not extend to the edge of the fingerboard. This prevents them from protruding due to fretboard shrinkage at lower humidity. The resulting area contains a flexible ebony-colored filler, which can perfectly absorb any changes.
