Orange Series guitars are made using all of Furch’s key technologies with maximum attention to detail. The soundboard of these instruments consists of high-grade AAA Sitka spruce, the back and sides are from either Indian rosewood or black walnut. This material combination gives the Orange Series guitars a strong and dynamic sound, the properties of which are further enhanced by Furch’s proprietary soundboard voicing process. Our unique Full-Pore High-Gloss Finish, which improves each guitar’s resonance, also has an extremely positive effect on sound. The unique look of the Orange Series is underscored by a host of decorative elements, foremost a pearl fingerboard inlay and contrasting maple body, fingerboard and headstock binding, which stand out beautifully on a dimly-lit stage. The purfling and the rosette, however, are decorated with a discreet but exclusive strip of Redheart wood. Orange Series guitars are delivered in a highly durable Hiscox thermally insulated case.
Since its introduction in 1916, the Dreadnought has become the most popular and most widely known acoustic guitar in history.

The premium nature of the Orange SW is underscored by the fact that the soundboard is individually tuned using the voicing process, which enhances the guitar’s tonal properties to the highest level.
