Violet G-SY

The Elegant Sound of Furch Guitars

Furch guitars have really made a name for themselves in the last few years for their high-quality, premium acoustic guitars. Founded in 1981, this Czech manufacturer provides a level of quality few other brands can match, creating beautiful products that sound as good as they look.
With its delightful resonating tone, the Violet G-SY is a great example of this high quality in action, but let’s take a closer look to see just what makes this guitar so special.

A Beautiful Sikta Spruce Top

The Violet G-SY really is a gorgeous looking instrument. With a solid sitka spruce top and layered mahogany in an open pore finish on the back & sides, it’s easy to see just how much care goes into the materials alone. From a design perspective, it’s hard not to love the subtle touches, like the understated black binding with a matching pickguard, turning transparent near the sound hole to give way to a single-ring black rosette.

What Makes The Violet G-SY Unique?

Under the surface, this guitar combines classic luthier’s techniques with the best of modern engineering.ย  The Furch CNR Systemยฎ neck joint (with a dual-action truss rod) is, quite frankly, a revolutionary new approach to guitar design. By encasing the truss rod in carbon and using a special alloy for the reinforcing block, they have created a design that not only allows for far more precise neck adjustments but will retain its set-up long-term.

Is the Violet G-SY Worth the Price?

The Violet G-SY currently sells for around $900. That might sound pricey, but it’s pretty good value for this kind of premium.
You have to bare in mind that, with Furch, you’re not just paying for a guitar that looks nice and sounds nice, but a guitar that will retain its quality long term.

Of course, there’s no need to let us be the judge! Have a listen here on Tonepedia and decide for yourself.
