Yellow Deluxe SR – 12 String

The Yellow Deluxe SR is one of our most technologically advanced guitars, whether in terms of sound, ergonomics or quality of workmanship. The soundboard of the instrument features Sitka spruce that produces a beautiful balanced sound across the entire tonal range with slightly pronounced highs. Its acoustic properties are further enhanced by our unique individual voicing process. The back and sides are from Indian rosewood. Both plates are complemented by the ergonomic Bevel Duo feature, which provides maximum comfort even during prolonged play. The entire body of the guitar is protected by our proprietary Full-Pore High-Gloss Finish developed to enhance the resonance qualities of tonewoods. The finish combined with high-quality tonewoods and stylish appointments lend the Yellow Deluxe SR an attractive classy look. The guitar comes in heavy-duty Hiscox hardshell case.

Furch 12-string models offer a very rich and full sound and feature an extra string that doubles the six strings of a regular guitar. The extra strings for the low E, A, D, and G strings have a lighter gauge and are tuned one octave higher, whereas the B and high E strings are doubled by strings with the same gauge that are tuned to the same pitch.

Proprietary string attachment

Because the angle at which each string passes over the saddle has a considerable effect on the sound, the angle must be the same for all of the strings. The solution typically used on 12-string guitars, which uses two rows of six standard bridge pins, cannot achieve this because the angle at which the strings pass over the bridge is different for each of the two rows. Our proprietary solution features each of the main strings attached with a standard bridge pin, while each of the extra strings passes through a channel from the rear end of the bridge to a point behind the saddle that ensures that the string crosses the saddle at the same angle as the main string. This way, the string break angle is the same for each string, which translates into uniform resonance properties for all 12 strings.

Unique voicing process

The premium nature of the Yellow Deluxe SR is underscored by the fact that the soundboard is individually tuned using the voicing process, which enhances the instrument’s tonal properties to the highest level. Thanks to that, the Yellow Deluxe SR 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.

Bevel Duo for extra comfort

The black Bevel Duo ergonomic feature, comprised of two bevels – one in front, at the forearm and one in the rear, at the rib position, provides a significant increase in player comfort and also enhances the exclusive appearance of the instrument. We use modern 3D printing technology during its creation which allows us to manfacture it with maximum precision.

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.

Rosette made from abalone

The soundhole is adorned by a rosette featuring a double ring with green abalone inlay and a black and white line.

Transparent protection

The soundboard of the Yellow Deluxe SR 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 Yellow Deluxe SR has an excellent tuning stability courtesy of Gotoh 510 Silver Patina machine heads with 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.
