Are you an established or emerging professional artist considering the purchase of a new acoustic guitar at this time? If so, and you meet our criteria, this could be a wonderful opportunity to acquire a world class instrument at a significantly reduced price.
For over 30 years Frantisek Furch has been building fine handcrafted guitars in a beautifully restored mill in the Czech Republic. Throughout Europe and beyond these guitars bear the Furch family name. Since being introduced to the USA and Canada approximately eight years ago under the Stonebridge name brand, they have earned a high degree of respect from professional artists, guitar enthusiasts, retail shops, and songwriting circles. There is no doubt about it, these are serious musicians’ guitars.
In late 2013, the factory expressed a strong interest in having their family name introduced to USA and Canada as well. As such, Stonebridge Guitars International has recently been offering their guitars under both the Stonebridge and Furch brand names.
Over the history of Stonebridge, the Artist Collaboration Program has played a important role in helping introduce the guitars to North America. At this time, we have decided to use the same program to further help establish the Furch brand.
As we work at getting a new guitar brand name out there, we face the same kind of challenges professional musicians do in promoting themselves in today’s music industry. We have learned that there can be tremendous benefits in combining our efforts at a grassroots level with hardworking and talented musicians.
We work together primarily on social media to help spread the word to our community about the artists who play our instruments. It’s a collaborative process built on trust and mutual respect, rather than a typical exclusive endorsement contract. We basically promote each other in our respective ways.
To be clear, we are not handing out free guitars! However, we are offering successful candidates a significant discount towards the purchase of one or more of our instruments. If you happen to be thinking about getting a new guitar and the timing is right, this might be a perfect opportunity for you. It is a chance to acquire a handmade, world class guitar without having to spend a fortune.
