Capturing the essence of the spruce and rosewood construction, the Hi-Gloss range from Faith are finished with a lacquer that brings out the tonewood's natural beauty better than any artist ever could.

Faith Acoustic Guitars are the choice of thousands of musicians around the world. Made from nothing but all-solid tonewoods, 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!".
