Unboxing three Furch guitars

Recommended Posts

I've only seen one. It was in the locked sanctum behind glass in a GC.  I wasn't in the mood to get the helpful staff to unlock it.

Wow.  Sound great, look great, prices are reasonable.   Of course, Johnson plays so well - he probably can make that cigar box guitar behind him sound better than a Stratavarius.

This guy is such a great player, I really like the way he did this too. Those guitars look pretty awesome.  They get nothing but high praise on the AGF.

I looked on line and the low end violet ones are a little over 1k and the high end red is a little over 4k all all price points in between. They started in Czechoslovakia which is now the Czech  Republic.

Yep. From the video - Mr.Furch  senior was a criminal:  Risking prison or worse by making and selling stuff without state sanction. Danm Capitalist !

Never seen anything like the little OM that came in a backpack.  Detached headstock with the strings wound on it, neck inside the body slides out and gets clipped to the body.  So much for long tenon, hide glue and all that stuff.  Crazy.

Liking the backpack one. 'Some assembly required' [wink]

But not much.

I was blown away that the dang thing was still in tune after being 're-constructed'.    

Now - if they made something like that out of carbon fibre -  I think they would discover a whole new market.  

I  wish I knew a big time guitar maker looking to create 'the next big one'.

It would get my attention pretty quick.
