Ted's Music is now a proud retailer of Furr guitars (see the buy now tab).
This is a Furr interpretation of an American classic.
The body was hand carved from Brazilian Sapele and African Walnut. Each curve of the guitar speaks to his passion for guitars and the soul of his music, working together in harmony.
"You are always a student, never a master. You are always an artist and have to always ways move forward."
"The wood picked for this project was very thought out... I really liked the Baltimore touch. I received the guitar on the date promised and had several meetings where i saw pictures of the process. This guitar sounds awesome and I would not hesitate to refer Brian Furr to anyone looking for the highest quality of instrument."
- Thomas Rhodes, Zeke's Coffee.
Woods are chosen for their natural beauty. Each spiral, stripe, loop, and swirl is as unique as the individuals who play them. Once the wood is chosen Brian consults with the client about the design and individual components of the guitar. We build a guitar from the ground up and allowing you, the customer, to be a part of the process.
This travel guitar was built to meet the specific needs of a client who needed a light weight, but serious instrument while traveling through Europe.
“The seed must grow regardless
of the fact that it’s planted in stone”
― Tupac Shakur
Each neck is a pro-style bolt on neck typically found on a Stratocaster or Telecaster, but the style of the instrument still plays out in the neck. A piece of wood is chosen and embedded in the headstock uniting the neck to body ascetically. Chrome or gold locking tuning machines are placed to complete the balance of design and function.
"Dear Lord, from the hands of the artist to the hands of the musician, let this instrument play the music God intends."
I know to some it is arbitrary, but I believe this invokes a spirit of positivity into the instrument.
"Yeah... it takes time, but that's how you make a timeless work of art." - Brian Furr
No one will knock your door, with a check for $1,000,000. I have overcome several trials and tribulations before getting where I am today. But the fact that I'm alive means I lived to fight another day. For that reason, I put my heart and soul into each and every guitar, creating a piece that I myself would be proud to play on stage.
Each Furr Guitar is designed by the customer and Brian Furr. They are unique by design for the individual who will play it. No two Furr Guitars are the same.
Furr speaks to the quality of the brand, but also the qualities my father and grandfather taught me. It represents the patience it takes to pursue a dream. Perfection is a forever moving entity that only exists in each individuals minds' eye. We continually seek perfection and take small steps to that everyday.
