"The Jupiter is beautifully made, was delivered in perfect condition and professionally setup. The tone is mellow but nonetheless bright and the base fundamental resonance is pronounced and pleasing. Although the jumbo size I find the guitar comfortable to play sitting or standing with shoulder strap. A really nice guitar."

"The build quality and finish is excellent. I love the mellow but nonetheless bright tone and the low E string fundamental resonance is very pleasing. The guitar was professionally setup prior to shipment and the action is very good."

"Stunning! I have been playing professionally for 40 years and have other well known acoustic guitars (Taylor/Martin) but I was floored by the tone of this FJHG. I will definitely be on the lookout for another Faith guitar in the near future, perhaps a parlor type."

"So far i like it very much. I love the shape, the size .. and the sound of course. Except the guitar has some (minor) finish-wear-marks underneath. I was told the guitar is brand new and never used. Sent from UK to www.musikkinstrumenter.no / Scenario As - Musikkinstrumenter last week. Its not a big deal, but the wear-marks shouldn't be there .. after all... if it is brand new.. (?)"

David MacFarlane

on 28/12/2013
"Honestly - I love it! I like it more with time, too. That said, I often wish it had a slightly more dynamic pickup system, as I find the bass and treble almost always need to be dialled back to less than 10%. I can usually get it to sound OK, though!"
