Furch Green Series D-SR – A Unique 9 String Dreadnaught w/ Sitka Spruce / Indian Rosewood


About This Listing

Here’s a guitar you don’t see every day – a nine string dreadnaught with the best aspects of a twelve string – the double high E and B strings and the octave double G string, giving you the jangle of a twelve and the solid foundation of a six string dread. Wow! Check out the attached demonstration video  and hear it for yourself!

Nut width on this guitar is 1.89″ – we will publish additional specs shortly.

Here’s how the Furch Guitars web page describes the unique string and bridge configuration of this guitar:

“This nine-string guitar delivers a highly balanced blend of the treble and bass strings. The high E and B strings are doubled by strings with the same gauge, and the wound G string is doubled by a plain string tuned an octave higher. The doubled strings produce a rich sound. In contrast, the D, A, and low E strings are single, and their sound is focused.

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 cannot achieve this because the angle at which the strings pass over the bridge is different for each row of bridge pins. 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 nine strings.”
