The 21 line by Furch, like the 20 line, is made with a more minimalistic approach so you could get a maximum guitar for minimum investment. The solid black walnut body in combination with the solid sitka spruce top and open pore finish give the G-21SW a natural finish both in sound and feeling. It has a dominant mid range which cuts very nice in a mix and in a loud environment like when you do street busking for instance. And the natural feeling of this guitar really makes it easy to fall in love with. It is not a fancy instrument, nor intended to be, but simply a great guitar, made of good materials and offered for an extremely competitive price.
