FRMG - Mars Drop Shoulder Dreadnought SRP: £769.00

FRMG - Mars Drop Shoulder Dreadnought
FRMG - Mars Drop Shoulder Dreadnought FRMG - Mars Drop Shoulder Dreadnought

Model Overview

Based upon the Patrick James Eggle 'Kanuga' model, this Mars is a classic drop-shoulder dreadnought design. Tonally a great all-rounder, the Mars attracts the player with an eye and ear for tradition. 

Faith All-Mahogany models deliver a clear, linear tone which is very sweet and woody with plenty of midrange.

Using Mahogany for both the top and body of a guitar makes for a very “friendly” instrument that responds well to hard picking, strumming and finger-style techniques alike. Further to this, the sound produced is unburdened by overly audible overtones and harmonics, so they perform brilliantly when recording.

"In a word, beautiful. It is my first left hand and all solid wood guitar after playing right handed guitars for years. I was in awe of this guitar the moment my eyes gazed upon it, i thought "do i play this or put it in a display cabinet" that was the impact i felt of the sheer beauty and craftmanship of this guitar. I of course was eager to hear how it sounded and after strumming an E chord it really was heavenly. The set-up and playability is terrific and could not ask for more sweeter tone."

"Eine sehr schön verarbeitete Gitarre mit einem schönen warmen und mittenbetontem Klang! Genau so habe ich mir eine massive Mahagoni Gitarre klanglich vorgestellt! Das Aussehen und die Verarbeitung sehr edel und hochwertig in der Preisklasse. Saitenlage ist optimal für mich eingestellt! Beim ersten Anspielen "Gänsehaut"! Ich bin begeistert !"

"Guitar sounds a tad bright, but that's most likely due to the strings (mine came with 80/20s, will change to phosphor bronze). Also, it has not been set up very well. Otherwise, I'm very happy with this purchase. Looks and sounds great, and is a quality instrument."

"I love this guitar. I went to the store to try the Hi-Gloss range, but then tried the mahogany Mars I just kept coming back to it because of the well-balanced sound across the range and the playability. Fabulous neck & workmanship."
