FSHG - HiGloss Saturn SRP: £809.00

FSHG - HiGloss Saturn
FSHG - HiGloss Saturn FSHG - HiGloss Saturn

Model Overview

One of the original Faith shapes that launched the brand at the beginning of this century, this Saturn is a square-shouldered dreadnought design.

Based upon the traditional early 20th century designs, the Saturn is like an old friend: you know exactly what to expect, and it always delivers just as you would want. 

Faith HiGloss series are designed to offer both visual and aural beauty. Using high grade Englemann Spruce for the top and highly-figured Rosewood for the back and sides, HiGloss models feature solid Flamed Maple binding and Macassan Ebony for the fingerboard, bridge, headplate and heelcap.

Tonally, this combination of wood is generally bright and 'zingy', delivering great clarity. Visualising this as a frequency curve, it would be shaped like a smile: high on the bass, dipping down through the middle and rising once again at the top end, lending itself to fingerstyle and solo pieces in particular.

"It's absolutely beautiful to start off with, really classy and understated with the abalone rosette, flamed maple binding and the beautiful grain patterns of the wood. It's very loud with a rich tone - extremely resonant bass with crisp highs too. It plays really well and sounds incredible, I'm so happy with it! Top quality!"

"First impressions: looks great, sounds great and that sound is going to get better ! Surprising volume and clarity. Set up is spot on. Bought my last acoustic 32 years ago (Ovation Custom Balladeer) I think the FSHG will be more than a match for it !"

"You would have to pay a whole lot more to beat my Faith Saturn. Certainly a match for my tutor's T*y**r which cost more than twice as much. Great to play, sounds super. Saving up for a Saturn 12 string to go with it!!"
