Following the continued success and popularity of the Naked series, the brand have now expanded the range to include their established ‘Mars’ drop-shoulder dreadnought and ‘Saturn’ dreadnought acoustic shapes.
Notable for their stripped back, natural soundboards featuring solid Englemann Spruce tops, Indonesian Mahogany back and sides matched with premium fittings such as Ebony bridge pins, Abalone rosettes and precision chrome machineheads – Faith Naked series guitars offer specifications above and beyond what is expected at their price range.
With the brands Mercury, Neptune and Venus shapes making up the series to date – the latter having historically been awarded the ‘UK’s Best Acoustic Guitar’ – the new drop-shoulder and conventional dreadnought additions will appeal to players who value naturally resonant and responsive solid tonewoods and traditional acoustic guitar aesthetics.
Available both as non-electro and electro acoustic versions, the new Faith Naked Mars model is based upon the classic drop-shoulder ‘Kanuga’ model from Faith Guitars designer Patrick James Eggle. Also available in non-electro and electro forms, the Faith Naked Saturn guitar delivers a strong low-end tone with a driving midrange and lively treble notes synonymous with the much loved dreadnought shape.
Both Faith Naked Mars and Saturn non-electro guitars retail for £479 with electro versions retailing at £529. www.faithguitars.com
