Model Overview

The Faith Jupiter model is a traditional 17", full-bodied Jumbo guitar that delivers a big, powerful sound, rich in bass and low-end resonance.

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.

UserReviews

"Full balanced tone, good sustain and nice components for price. Well balanced and a thing of beauty. Running in so its still quite bright/brassy but prefer tone to more expensive Taylors I tried and is superb with DADGAD and Celtic picking or strumming."

"Beautifully made. Sounds outstanding in the right hands, though sadly not currently in mine! Looking forward to growing into this guitar as I learn more, practice and improve over the years ahead."
