You no longer have to be a stadium-headlining artist to have your own custom guitar. Furch Guitars (Furch), a world-leading manufacturer of acoustic guitars, has changed the game. Furch now offers each guitarist the chance to be their own guitar builder, creating exactly the acoustic guitar they desire.
Choose from up to 160 different features, mixing and matching to your own specific needs.
The customized guitar then carries the brand RAINBOW.
How It Works
For the new modifiable RAINBOW guitar series, Furch has prepared a high-grade “basic version”: a) the cover of the sitka cage, and b) the bottom and the sack of Indian rosewood. Both of these materials belong to the so-called master grade version, which means that it applies to selected top quality wood.
On top of this basic model template, the customer can complement additional design variants. Choose from more than 160 different features including, for example:
- the shape of the guitar’s body
- the number of strings
- mechanics for tuning and
- tuning sound
With these combination of available adjustments, you can build over 25,000 different guitar models.
“The interest in customized guitars has constantly increased over the past ten years. Already last year, guitars consisted of a higher degree of ordered adjustments, six per cent of which were output and this year we expect an even higher figure.
Our new series of RAINBOW guitars is a response to the growing demand for so-called customodeller, which offers customers the greatest freedom in the construction of their dream guitars. Guitarists will no longer be bound to the standard models in our range, but will be able to design the guitar basically right from the start,” says Petr Furch, CEO of Furch Guitars.
Although each model of the RAINBOW guitars is largely unique, the quality craftsmanship remains the same. This means that the high quality wood and unique production technology are always the foundation. Guitar models all build on the Furch process: how the lid and bottom are customized, the unique UV lacquer with an extremely thin and resilient texture, Furch’s revolutionary neck design, and the CNR System, which prolongs the stability of the neck by up to 90%.
The combination of the highest quality materials and leading manufacturing techniques makes the RAINBOW models not only looks good but, above all, perform with Furch guitar’s characteristic high quality sound.
