Hmmmmm
The comment in the vid that says “now available in the USA” is not accurate, but I guess that’s part of their new marketing campaign.

I’ve been playing Furch since around 2010. I found them in a small little shop while passing through NC. Stonebridge guitars international were the original importers and distributors of Furch. They are no longer in the pic, but they laid the ground work for Furch in the US and Canada. Here is their story
