The top of the FECJ is made of Solid Englemann Spruce These slow-growing trees are found mainly at altitude in and around North America, and they have been chosen by Faith for their special acoustic properties for many years. Shadow Electronics' PerformerTuner preamp offers a great EQ, an ultra-accurate tuner, and a feedback-busting phase switch. Adjustment of the EQ controls (bass & treble) will enable you to easily find your perfect acoustic tone.
Faith Acoustic Guitars are the choice of thousands of musicians around the world. Made from nothing but all-solid tone-woods, they sound great amplified or unplugged. Patrick James Eggle, a world-renowned Luthier and founder of Faith guitars, has been making guitars since he was 15 years old. Since then he has developed the Faith brand - an understated company who nonetheless produce fantastic quality instruments. With the Faith brand, Eggle draws on his long experience of guitar design to deliver guitars that strive for a perfect balance between tonewood quality and bracing patterns.
Many famous artists have called upon the Faith brand when launching their careers, and the guitars they select stay with them, becoming part of their sound and approach to the music. Tom Clarke, the frontman of Conventry-based band The Enemy, has been using his selection of Faith guitars (Saturn, Saturn12, Venus) for live unplugged gigs around the UK. Paul Smith (Maximo Park) is another high profile artist who chooses Faith Guitars. Irwin Sparkes, the excitable frontman of catchy indie/pop sensations The Hoosiers, plays a Faith Mercury Model, and hold the name in high regard for the excellent playing feel and design. He comments: "Since playing Faith acoustic guitars, I play fewer mistakes, more often!".
