3 Reasons to Buy a Furch Guitar Today

Buying a guitar is an intensely personal decision, hinged on multiple factors like the build quality, sound quality, playability, and price. Amongst the variety of brands available, one stands out with a unique proposition: Furch Guitars.

Founded in 1981, this Czech Republic-based guitar manufacturer has been crafting unique and premium quality guitars for over four decades. Here, we list 3 reasons why you might want to consider buying a Furch guitar, especially over other recognized brands like Taylor and Martin.

#1 Unique Voice and Sound

We all know that Martin and Taylor are the biggest names in acoustic guitars. It’s not surprising that so many brands try to imitate their designs and sound.

While Furch does have traditional body shapes, like dreadnoughts and OMs, their sound profile is quite different from what you’d expect from Taylor or Martin. At Heart’s Home Acoustics, we all agree that they have their own signature sound.

Furch guitars have their own voice, which sets them apart from the rest. Rather than imitate, we feel that Furch Guitars are trying to set a new sound standard - and they seem to be doing it extremely well.

#2 Customization Options

One of the key differentiators of Furch Guitars is their commitment to personalization. Furch offers a Rainbow Series that allows players to customize their guitar down to minute details. This includes choosing the body shape, type of wood, finish, and other unique specifications. While Taylor and Martin do offer customization, Furch provides a much more extensive array of options. This level of personalization ensures that players can own a guitar that is truly one of a kind.

#3 Affordability and Value

While Furch guitars are not cheap, they offer exceptional value for the money. When compared to premium models from brands like Taylor and Martin, Furch guitars often come at a more accessible price point for similar features offered in higher-priced models from other premium brands. Given the exceptional quality, superior sound, and extensive customization options, Furch guitars are a worthwhile investment for serious musicians who want a premium instrument without breaking the bank.

What Some of Our Staff Members Think of Furch Guitars

They’re very well designed, well-thought out guitars without being another “big brand copy”. Furch seems to be thinking as much about the future of guitar making as they are about the past.

Elijah Hawkins - Guitar Technician & Instructor

To my hands and ears, they seem to split the difference between Martin and Taylor. It’s almost the sound of a Martin with the playability of a Taylor.

Joe Gonzalez - Guitar Instructor

In my opinion, Furch Guitars offer the best value in terms of price, playability and, most importantly, sound quality. If you’ve always wanted a nice-quality guitar but feel you don’t quite have the budget for it, you should definitely give Furch Guitars a try.

Chaney Rutherfod - General Store Manager

I simply love their tone. They have this unique warmness and dimensional depth in them, specially in the low-mid range. Plus their playability is top-notch.

Angel Candelaria - Assistant Manager & Guitar Instructor


In conclusion, Furch Guitars stand firm as a compelling alternative to well-known brands like Taylor and Martin. Rather than thinking in terms of “which is better” and engaging in an endless Taylor vs. Furch, Martin vs. Furch, Furch vs. Guild, or Furch vs. [insert your favorite brand here] debate, we feel they are a unique voice in their own.

With highly innovative ideas like the Furch CNR System®, Furch Guitars offer a unique blend of craftsmanship, premium tonewoods, extensive customization, superior sound quality, and great value. Their unique approach to guitar design and sound profile has won the respect of many fans from other popular brands and makes Furch Guitars a worthy consideration for anyone in the market for a high-quality acoustic guitar.

    You guys sold me a used Stonebridge, the other brand built by the Furch folks. Actually, it sold itself. I spent a couple hours there one of the last times I was back in Boerne, and played on a bunch of guitars, and the Stonebridge just stood out as a great guitar. Once I got it home, my oldest son played it and said “You might have to sell this one to me”.

    • Angel Candelaria

      Hey Max! We’re glad you’ve had a great experience with your Stonebridge guitar (now rebranded to Furch Guitars in North America). Most of our customers are pretty happy with their Furch Guitars.

      Btw, tell your son to get over here and buy his own Furch, haha! 😂
