"Absolutely blown away with finish and quality of this instrument.... particularly it's price !. The sound from this new guitar is superb so I can only imagine what it will sound like when it opens up. In my opinion, to get a similar instrument with for example 'Taylor' on the headstock, you would have to spend well over £1500"

"Even if you do not play a guitar, you would appreciate this guitar as an exquisite work of art. The workmanship and finish is a joy to behold, and then I played a couple of chords, wow! Would have to pay 4 times as much for a Taylor that sounded like that and it still would not have the design and build quality.

Thanks Guys, very happy today!"

"I had purchased a TAYLOR 214 ce DLX, with the expression 2 system, the tone was very good, but when I played in the house the finger noise ,when plugged in ,was too much. I took it back and tried ,for the first time ,your faith guitar, I was blown away ,first by the incredibly spec. the build quality ,play-ability , tone, and the price. I own some 35 stringed instruments,some more expensive than your Faith guitar, but I am now ,in a very short time a CONFIRMED MAN OF FAITH. It was my good fortune that lead me to your instruments,I can not imagine me buying anything other brand from now on. THANK YOU FAITH"

"Purchased my Faith today, having tried a number of different guitars I'm quite sure I made the right decision. For value for money I had struggled to find a solid bodied guitar in this price range. The sound is comparable to the so called big names that you pay $$$ because of the name on the headstock. The guitar is well balance with a great mix of lows middles and trebles and has great projection unplugged. And works well when played in finger style and equally as well when strummed. Overall I'm very happy with my purchase and would recommend anyone looking for a solid body guitar to give faiths a try you will be surprised by their versatility and organic tones. "

Fantastic build quality and a stunningly beautiful instrument both to play and to look at. It shouldn't be possible to get such a high quality instrument for this price, but somehow they've pulled it off. I test-played Martins and Taylors but until I hit a price bracket three times the cost of this guitar, nothing came close."

"Very nice appearance, good to hold, good tone and volume, and is lighter than my previous guitar, which is a good factor. It is a left handed model, and it has a good action. The contrast of the mahogany and the spruce wood is clear and pleasing."

"Nice built, easy to play. Need sometime to evaluate HEX pickup as it looks strings separation is not good enough. It is too early to rate, that's the reason of '7'. Could be higher. "

"This solid body guitar is a true piece of craftsman ship. Wonderful tone with warm yet bright projection. The pre-amp also provides a proffessional D.I quality, but i have recently came to the conclusion that the pickup/mics are unstable."

"I'm happy . It's just that the when I plug it in, the volume is VERY low. I played around with the EQ on the guitar and I tried different batteries but nothing worked. I have to turn my amp 4x louder than with other guitars. Causing a lot of hum/buzz"
Ronald Boertje

Christopher Key
