Solid Engelmann Spruce & Solid Mahogany Construction

The Faith Eclipse Mercury Scoop features an entire solid wood construction for a superior tone and incredible dynamic response. Its solid engelmann spruce top yields crisp articulation and a slightly richer mid-range than sitka spruce. The solid top's smooth tone provides a versatile soundboard that is able to accommodate numerous genres and techniques with equal ease, from fingerpicking styles to heavier strumming patterns. Furthermore, the solid engelmann spruce top is paired with solid mahogany back and sides that add warmth, resonance and plenty of emphasis to the bass and trebles, providing the player with a rich, complex, and full-bodied sound that is more well-known as the 'classic' acoustic voice.

Mahogany Neck & Macassan Figured Ebony Fingerboard

With a neck constructed from mahogany, the Eclipse Mercury offers a quick and dynamic response with plenty of warmth and resonance. Mahogany's nature allows it to respond superbly to numerous playing styles and techniques with ease, perfect for getting creative and unleashing true potential. Furthermore, the neck is topped with an Macassan figured ebony fingerboard that adds ringing sustain, plenty of bite and a bright sizzle to the guitar's overall tone. For added aesthetic appeal, the fingerboard also features Faith's majestic 'F' logo placed on the 12th fret and inlaid in mother of pearl for an elegant look.

Mercury Body

This traditional parlour inspired body was designed as a stage guitar to provide the player with workhorse functionality and optimum performance capability, perfect for the gigging guitarist or performing singer/songwriter. Additionally, its compact size provides comfort throughout both seated and standing performance, while its 'scoop' comfort-contour offers enhanced playability higher up the fingerboard. Furthermore, the Mercury also has a 12th fret neck join with lower string tension and a shifted bridge, which together all add to the Mercury's easy playability with an acoustic voice that belies its size. The overall tone produced is equally suited to a variety of picking and strumming techniques.

Shadow Electronics

Equipped with a Shadow Stereo preamp and Shadow Nanoflex 6 pickup, the Eclipse Mercury Scoop offers basic sound tweaking for live, studio and rehearsal environments. Additionally, its Shadow Nanoflex pickup captures the acoustic's natural voice and projects it purely, clearly, and faithfully. The Eclipse Mercury also has a Shadow Stereo preamp that features a convenient on-board tuner for precise and easy tuning on-the-go. Furthermore, the preamp provides tone tweaking controls for optional sound shaping when plugged in which include volume, treble, middle, and bass. Lastly, a phase button is also featured which prevents undesirable feedback when plugged-in.

Patrick James Eggle Bracing

The Patrick James Eggle X-brace design and is made from quarter-sawn spruce, offering reinforced structure with enhanced tone and volume. Bracing serves two purposes, to stop the guitar from collapsing under string tension, and to shape the guitar's sound. The Patrick James Eggle X-brace design forms an X shape that intersects just behind the sound hole, giving support and stability to your guitar, and a rich, beautifully balanced tone with superb volume, projection.
