FKM - Naked Mercury SRP: £469.00

FKM - Naked Mercury
FKM - Naked Mercury FKM - Naked Mercury

Model Overview

A little beauty, this Mercury is a traditional short-scale parlour model. With the neck joining the body at the 12th fret - rather than the 14th - the strings are held at a slightly lower tension than on regular models. Another implication of the 12th fret join is that the bridge is shifted further from the soundhole. 

These features result in a guitar that is physically easier to play, sounds much bigger than you would imagine and is also simple to handle and transport

The Spruce top and Mahogany body of each of the Faith Naked instruments is 100% solid tonewood – in keeping with all other Faith series. However, the cosmetics and non-essential dressing has been stripped away, leaving the guitars in their natural, Naked state. Satin finished all over, the tonewood is almost entirely unrestricted in its resonant movement, so the tone delivered is far beyond what is normally expected at this price level.

"The Naked Mercury does exactly what it says on tin. Its a small bodied, all-solid parlour guitar, great for travelling or small gigs. The fact that it is all solid, combined with the outstanding quality from Faith, leads me to believe that Faith makes the best value for money guitars on the market, and in my opinion, the Mercury is one of the best in the range."

"The guitar has pick up fitted 2 small dials on the edge of the sound hole jack point at base/ guitar strap. Is this a standard pre amp fitting?
The guitar is fabulas over the moon with the sound and looks."

"Brilliant. Such a sweet sounding little guitar, makes me want to pick it up and strum without all the hassle of getting my electric guitars out of cases and amps warmed up. Definitely a keeper around the house."

"I was looking for a "sofa" guitar and chose the Mercury over the Mini Neptune and Saturn as I thought the sound quality was better, the electro element not being a priority. I am delighted with the purchase and look forward to many hours of pleasure with it, unfortunately I will have to wait until Christmas!"

"Delighted with it. Crisp, sparkly sound, responsive, everything I would have hoped for. Close miked I reckon it will be a good recording guitar. I already have a Saturn Hi -Gloss 12 string which I have been very pleased with. Jude has a Venus which I may try out when pay day comes lol."

"A beautiful natural pure wood sound, feel and looks ..Love the concept of a natural acoustic guitar ., It is a Naked instrument .. Pure and uncluttered with no fancy stuff I don't want ..you can squeeze the notes out of this instrument like juice .. Play soft .. Hard .. In between ..its a joy ..I'm a electric player and used to my simple no nonsense guitars and this fits the bill nicely."

"Very versatile for a small bodied guitar. The satin finish lets its resonate and gives a big sound when picked or strummed. Really nice, playable neck. It seems well made and finished. Despite the lack of appointments it still has a classy look"
