Solid Engelmann Spruce & Solid Mahogany Construction

The Faith Saturn Dreadnought features an entire solid wood construction for a superior tone and dynamic response. Its solid engelmann spruce top yields crisp articulation and 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 & Ebony Fingerboard

With a neck constructed from mahogany, the Faith Saturn Dreadnought 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 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.

Saturn Cutaway Body

The Faith Saturn Dreadnought features a Faith's original dreadnought body, also known as the 'Saturn'; offering superb volume and projection while maintaining tonal balance across the sonic-spectrum. This all-rounder of an acoustic guitar is able to accommodate a wide range of genres including rock, pop, country, blues, bluegrass, folk and much more, as well as being equally suited to fingerpicking, flat picking, and strumming. Its bigger body has more room for sound to reverberate and combined with Patrick James Eggle's bracing, the Saturn provides the player with a rich, full-bodied acoustic voice that also acts as an ideal vocal accompaniment. Furthermore, the bold and commanding dreadnought body offers a comfortable playing experience for those more comfortable with bigger bodied guitars whilst its drop-shoulder design provides added comfort and easier playability. For added comfort, the Saturn also has a venetian cutaway profile, offering easy access to upper frets and more challenging chords.

Optional Amplified Performance

The Faith Saturn Dreadnought Cutaway offers a classic and sonically-versatile acoustic voice that can be amplified via its built-in preamp and pickup. Additionally, the gigging guitarist or performing singer/songwriter is certain to benefit from this affordable all-solid-wood construction, ideal for studio work as well as amplified rehearsals. Furthermore, the preamp offers basic controls for tweaking the amplified tone to personal preference.

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 the guitar, and a rich, beautifully balanced tone with superb volume, projection.

Patrick James Eggle & Faith

Patrick James Eggle had a major input to the design of many of the Faith family and built his first guitar at the age of fifteen as a school project. By the time he had completed it, he was already completely dissatisfied by the outcome of his project, and decided to pull it apart and start again from scratch. This started a life long obsession which lead him to fame and has now gained an incredible reputation among collectors and players for his uncompromising quality and amazing eye for a tasteful design. His commitment to producing guitars of the highest quality tone, finish, and playability is extremely popular. Faith was created in 2002 by an exclusive group of veteran guitar specialists, led by the legend himself Patrick James Eggle. He has trained each new staff member in hand-building and hand-finishing techniques that have characterised Patrick James Eggle guitars for decades.

Ethical Company

With workshops located in West Java, Indonesia, Faith have dedicated their working lives to both sustainable and ethical manufacturing processes, and are extremely conscious of environmental and human resource concerns. Each Faith model is produced in accordance with this vision and radiates the elegance of craftsmanship and superior tonal sounds for which Patrick James Eggle's designs are so well known.
