Furch CNR System

Because the neck is one of the most important construction elements of a guitar, the quest for devising a neck design that is as stable as possible has been an enormous challenge throughout the history of guitar building. After many years of research and development we have presented our unique structural design of the guitar neck. Our Furch CNR System (Furch Composite Neck Reinforcement System) uses modern materials to maintain high stability of guitar necks, thanks to which the necks achieve 90% higher resistance to deformation due to humidity and string tension compared to traditional solutions.
 
The basis of the Furch CNR System construction innovation is a new composite truss which, in combination with an extremely accurate production process provides an unbelievable level of stability of the body and neck geometry along their entire length, as well as the best accuracy of neck bow setting yet achieved. The entire system is invisibly integrated into the neck and, thanks to its rigidity, requires no mighty reinforcements generally used inside the guitar body at the point of the neck-body joint. The absence of these elements allows increasing the resonation area of the top and thus has a positive effect on the sound of the instrument.

 

  1. A fully adjustable dual-action truss rod for highly precise adjustment of the neck bow in both the convex and concave directions.
  2. 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.

The Furch CNR System neck joint design is available in all Furch guitars with serial number 68,294 and higher.
