I was looking for a Nylon string guitar ergonomically as Close as possible to a steel string acoustic. I suffer from tendonitis which makes it difficult for me to Play steel string guitars at the Moment. I already have a couple of Furch steel strings and knowing how good they are I decided to try the Furch GN4-SR.

I like everything about this guitar, particularly the playability and the Sound. With a 45mm nut width, radiused fretboard and low Action (no buzzing though) it is a pleasure to Play. The Sound is also great and fits classical and finger style very well.

I also like the fact that the neck joins the body at the twelfth fret with a cutaway allowing acces to the higher frets. I personally also like the fact that their are no electronics. These can be added non-invasively (LR Baggs) if required but I don't Need them.

If you think it's a bit expensive you could try out the GN2-CW which is equally playable and to my ears sounds great too.

I have tried out a few other hybrid guitars in local dealers and although they were admittedly less expensive than the Furch None of them could compete with the Furch in Terms of playablity and Sound.

His balanced.
Gilray, 03.10.2018
First impression: the sound is soft and balanced without favoring a particular frequency.
I played mostly on a folk, which probably explains this impression.
The fact that the saddle is only 45 mm is very nice for someone who also plays on a folk.
I am thinking of replacing the Salvarez strings by others to listen to the difference.
In any case, the current result is not rough at all: it sounds very good and very fair (when I do not make false notes!).
In addition, it is a beautiful instrument very well made.
The case comes with is super strong and maybe a little too heavy.
In summary, I am satisfied with my purchase.
I have in comparison that an old classic Takamine that sounds louder but more rough, hence the pleasure of playing with this Furch sound very clean.
Do not expect a strong projection.

Gilles.
