VIOLET SY

Sitka Spruce / Layered Mahogany
Price from  793 €

VIOLET Series guitars are made from high-quality Sitka spruce and layered mahogany. This combination of tonewoods has a delicate luminous appearance and produces a strong balanced sound. It is suitable for guitar players of all styles.

Guitar choice

VIOLET Series guitars take full advantage of the tonal potential of a solid Sitka spruce soundboard and layered mahogany back and sides. The back is pressed into an arch thanks to which no reinforcing braces are necessary. This design has a positive effect on the guitar's resonance and translates into a strong, loud, dynamic, and balanced sound.

Unique voicing process

The premium nature of Furch VIOLET SY guitars is underscored by the fact that the soundboard is tuned using the voicing process, which enhances the guitar's tonal properties to the highest level. Thanks to that, Furch VIOLET SY guitars have a crystalline clear, harmonically rich, balanced, and highly dynamic sound across the entire tonal spectrum.

Open-Pore Finish

Furch VIOLET SY guitars feature Open-Pore Finish, a special thin finish that promotes the natural sonic qualities of tonewoods and provides an excellent level of surface protection. The finish accentuates low frequencies and produces a natural woody sound.

Attractive soundboard

The attractive look of the soundboard of Furch VIOLET SY guitars is underscored by a combination of black binding and a rosette featuring a black ring with a white line, which contrasts with the light appearance of the spruce top plate.

Effective protection

Furch VIOLET SY guitars are protected by a black pickguard, which has been redesigned by the addition of a transparent extension toward the soundhole. The new pickguard shape provides better soundboard protection without disrupting the rosette pattern.

Furch CNR System Neck Design

A high precision dual-action truss rod maintains neck stability and allows fine adjustments of the neck relief in both directions. The truss rod is installed in a carbon casing filled with silicone to prevent undesirable vibrations and to ensure smooth action.

  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.
  3. 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.

Excellent playability

The fingerboard of Furch VIOLET SY guitars is made from high-quality ebony and features buffed frets with hidden fret leg ends, which allows for high playing comfort.
