Furch 2019 Red Series DC-SR Acoustic - Dreadnought Cutaway / Sitka Spruce and Indian Rosewood (Pre-owned)
We are very impressed with Furch Guitars, a Czecholslovakian company with which we weren't familiar before buying in this exceptionally-presented second-hand Red Series DC-SR. It is in immaculate condition and comes with its original hardcase.
Specifications of second-hand items, which are sold under the HMRC Margin Scheme, are established to the best of our knowledge.
"The Red Series is synonymous with the highest class of our solid wood guitars, which are truly uncompromising in terms of the materials and components. The Red SR is made of premium Sitka spruce used on the soundboard and Indian rosewood on the back and sides. Both plates undergo our innovative voicing process, which in conjunction with the material used gives the instrument a beautiful, versatile sound with clear and open tones.
"The beauty of the tonewood is underlined by a resonance enhancing high-gloss finish and a number of decorative details, led by a koa binding and premium rosette, abalone purfling and headstock inlay, and pearl leaf fingerboard inlay. The guitar comes enclosed in a highly durable, thermally insulated Hiscox case.
"Sound is the most important consideration for Furch guitars. Their excellent acoustic qualities are the result of state-of-the art technologies, proprietary production processes and precision craftsmanship combined with the use of the best available tonewoods. The Red SR is no fluke....
"Unique voicing process:
"The premium nature of the Red SR is underscored by the fact that both the soundboard and the back plate are individually tuned using the voicing process, our proprietary technology that enhances the guitar’s tonal properties to the highest level. Thanks to that, the Red SR has a crystalline clear, harmonically rich, balanced, and highly dynamic sound across the entire tonal spectrum.
"Resonance enhancing finish:
"The guitar is protected by our proprietary Full-Pore High-Gloss Finish, which has been developed to enhance the guitar’s tonal qualities. The finish consists of an ultrathin layer of highly resistant lacquer that provides excellent surface protection and accentuates the structure of the wood at the same time.
"The guitar is made from master grade tonewoods. The soundboard features Sitka spruce, which lends the guitars beautifully bright and open sound. The back and sides are made from Indian rosewood.
"Furch CNR System® Neck Design:
"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.
- A fully adjustable dual-action truss rod for highly precise adjustment of the neck bow in both the convex and concave directions.
- A highly rigid carbon casing that maintains the neck in the set position over a period much longer than is the case with standard neck joint designs and, at the same time, facilitates a gradual bow in the neck, a factor of essential importance for playability.
- A casting made of special alloy located inside the neck heel that ensures a stable position of the neck and its angle vis-à-vis the body.
"Beauty of exotic wood:
"The luxury appearance of the Red SR is underscored by a figured ziricote bridge, fingerboard, and headstock overlay. The body, fingerboard, and headstock feature koa binding with a white contrasting line. Koa was also used on a tail decoration and a premium rosette with abalone inlay.
"The soundboard is protected by a transparent pickguard that allows the natural beauty of the wood to shine through. The pickguard is designed to have no effect on the tonal qualities of the soundboard.
"Exotic leaf inlays:
"The fingerboard of the Red SR is decorated with gorgeous mother-of-pearl leaf front inlays. A similar pattern is rendered in green abalone on the headstock.
"Excellent machine heads:
"The guitar has an excellent tuning stability courtesy of Gotoh 510 Silver Patina machine heads with polished ebony buttons and a highly precise 1:21 gear ratio.
"High-rigidity Hiscox case:
"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.
