Furch - Red - LC - Dreadnought - Alpine Spruce Top - Cocobolo B/S - Hiscox OHSC

Red LC

  • First-class acoustic guitar made for the most discerning guitarists.
  • Premium-quality tonewoods.
  • Proprietary design features and production technologies, including unique soundboard voicing, revolutionary Furch CNR System® neck joint and resonance enhancing Full-Pore High-Gloss Finish.
  • Luxury appearance featuring a host of appointments made from abalone and koa.
  • Heavy-duty Hiscox hardshell case.

The Red Series is synonymous with the highest class of our solid wood guitars, which are truly uncompromising in terms of the materials and components. The Red LC is made of premium Alpine spruce used on the soundboard and cocobolo on the back and sides. Both plates undergo our innovative voicing process, which in conjunction with the material used gives the instrument a beautiful, versatile sound with clear and open tones.

The beauty of the tonewood is underlined by a resonance enhancing high-gloss finish and a number of decorative details, led by a koa binding and premium rosette, abalone purfling and headstock inlay, and pearl leaf fingerboard inlay. The guitar comes enclosed in a highly durable, thermally insulated Hiscox case.

Unique voicing process

The premium nature of the Red LC guitar is underscored by the fact that both the soundboard and the back plate are individually tuned using the voicing process, our proprietary technology that enhances the guitar’s tonal properties to the highest level. Thanks to that, the Red LC guitar has a crystalline clear, harmonically rich, balanced, and highly dynamic sound across the entire tonal spectrum.

Resonance enhancing finish

The instrument is protected by our proprietary Full-Pore High-Gloss Finish, which has been developed to enhance the guitar’s tonal qualities. The finish consists of an ultrathin layer of highly resistant lacquer that provides excellent surface protection and accentuates the structure of the wood at the same time.

Furch CNR System® Neck Design

A high precision, dual-action truss rod maintains neck stability and allows for fine adjustment of the neck relief, bilaterally. The truss rod is housed in a highly rigid carbon casing which enables a very smooth and controlled neck relief, ensuring the best playability and enduring optimal setup.

  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

Beauty of exotic wood

The stunning appearance of the Red LC is underscored by a figured ziricote bridge, fingerboard, and headstock overlay. The body, fingerboard, and headstock feature koa binding with a white contrasting line. Koa was also used on a tail decoration and a premium rosette with abalone inlay.

Transparent protection

The soundboard is protected by a transparent pickguard that allows the natural beauty of the wood to shine through. The pickguard is designed to have no effect on the tonal qualities of the soundboard.

Excellent machine heads

The Red LC has an excellent tuning stability courtesy of Gotoh 510 Silver Patina machine heads with polished ebony buttons and a highly precise 1:21 gear ratio.

High-rigidity Hiscox case

Maximum protection during transport is provided by a high-rigidity Hiscox case with polyurethane insulating foam that shields the instrument from changes in external climatic conditions.
