More Faith

A few days ago I learned of the signature guitars Faith released a few years ago and yesterday I was lucky to find the Neptune Honeyed Sycamore at Guitar Village, so had to have it, as you do. Englemann Spruce top with British Ribbed Sycamore back and sides, and a 45mm nut. It is my third Faith gitfiddle.

It did not have strap buttons as do the other two but no big deal. It still has the factory EXP11's and after 3 years still sound good. I presume the small button at the base can be removed for a strap button.

    I wonder how it compares with a Lowden. It certainly looks a contender.

    Lovely looking guitar! :smile:

    If it sounds as good as it looks you'll be in heaven.

    It has quite a warm, rich tone with really earthy bass, even with EXP11's, but the top end is still clear and bright. But 80/20's tend to lose some brightness after a while.

    A lovely guitar, Bob.

    My 12 string Faith sounded lovely but needed a gentle touch otherwise it sounded brittle with both the stock strings and phosper bronze. When I tried silk and steel it took on a whole new character, far more robust.
