Furch Guitars are well known for their high-quality acoustic guitars, and there’s a reason for that. Practically every guitar this Czech manufacturer have ever produced has been very well received. Praised for their gorgeous-looking instruments and beautifully rich tones, it’s no wonder they’re quickly becoming many people’s go-to acoustic brand.
If there’s one guitar that really exemplifies their approach, then it’s the Vintage 3 OM-SR. This guitar is just about everything you could want from a classic steel string. With a fantastic sound, and a genuinely iconic look, we at Tonepedia were blown away by just how much we loved this instrument and, when you hear it, we think you will be too.
It’s not easy to master that vintage guitar aesthetic but Furch have knocked it out of the park. Between the orchestra body shape, the exemplary wood selection, the full pore high gloss finish, and the mother of pearl inlays, this guitar is not only a real eye-catcher but also manages to evoke a delightfully traditional style.
Price is always one of the most important factors to consider when buying a guitar. Now Furch guitars certainly aren’t cheap, but that doesn’t mean they’re not worth the money.
Retailing for around $2500, the Vintage 3 OM-SR is certainly well within the premium range for acoustics. That being said, it really can’t be stressed just how much you are paying for quality. Countless hours of thought and hard work have gone into creating a design that plays well no matter your style. On the one hand, it’s great for finger-plucking, lending a warm, bright sound to every note, while at the same time, the Indian Rosewood and Sitka Spruce combination goes a long way to bringing out the power of the Vintage 3 OM SR despite its body size.
Of course, there’s no need for us to tell you how this guitar sounds when you can give it a listen. Why not give this guitar a try here on Tonepedia and decide for yourself if it’s worth a premium price?
