Model Overview

VOTED THE UK'S BEST ACOUSTIC GUITAR 2015

Englemann Spruce / British Rippled Sycamore
(45mm Nut, 14 Fret Join)

Rippled Sycamore is an indigenous wood from the UK and is the British relative of the broad leaf maple species frequently found in North America and famously used in guitar building.
When matched to high grade Engelmann Spruce, the tonal properties are akin to maple with a relatively dry and crisp tone that offers both power and clarity. The beauty of this British wood is complemented by a luxurious, light, honey-tone stain and solid Rosewood binding, back strip and end strip.

As with all solid-wood instruments, we would strongly recommend the continual use of a humidity control system when your guitar is not in use.

"Fantastic crisp clear sound with excellent fingerboard action. Eye catching instrumrnt visually"

"First impressions are that the guitar is finished well with little room for complaint. The sound is clear and well rounded with a good treble response. Low 'E' string is not as punchy as I would like but given that the spruce top will mature over time this may well improve. The Sycamore back and sides are lovely, which add to the clear woody sound of the guitar Overall I am pleased with the guitar and will continue to discover its potential over the coming months. One small moan - the lock on the Faith case will not lock."
