Furch Blue Plus Dreadnought Cutaway 12 String with Sitka Spruce / Walnut with LR Baggs Element Pickup #90062
The Furch Blue Plus SW guitar features a soundboard made from high-grade Sitka spruce and high-quality black walnut back and sides. The soundboard is protected by Full-Pore High-Gloss Finish. The back and sides feature Open-Pore Finish, which leaves wood pores exposed. This combination of high-quality solid tonewoods and proprietary finishes produces a beautiful musical sound across the entire tonal range, with balanced midrange frequencies.
The premium nature of Furch Blue Plus SW guitar 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, Furch Blue Plus SW guitar has a crystalline clear, harmonically rich, balanced, and highly dynamic sound across the entire tonal spectrum.
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. Our 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.
