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.

"Loved the sound and feel when I first played the Saturn 5 years ago. Very pleased to finally own one! The finish is excellent, as is the sound and playability. Looking forward to gigging with this guitar."

"It's amazing! The timbre is so vibrant and colourful. Satin neck makes it super smooth to play. It was my first proper guitar to buy after I finished with my starter guitar and I do not regret it one bit! I will never part with this guitar. It looks beautiful with the solid rosewood and abalone and the velvet green lined hardcase is a bonus. Just bought a blood moon Venus to add to my growing faith collection. My favourite guitar brand by far! "

"A truly beautiful guitar with tremendous tone. Fits and plays like a guitar 3 times the cost (and I did try a few before I bought this!). Ordered unseen but when arrived it was spectacular with the most wonderful marking within the redwood. They say each is unique and this proves it. Will be difficult to better."

"I have just found THE guitar! Absolutely blown away by the design, craftsmanship, quality and playability. And the sound right out of the very nice case is more than I had hoped for: rich, articulate, and beautifully balanced. The figured rosewood back and sides are simply stunning! The included Kyser Lifeguard Humidifier is a lovely and thoughtful touch. Seriously impressive all round."

"I bought my first Faith a couple of years ago and have never looked back. I always intended to get high end instruments and have a few other makes but I simply cant get past Faith Guitars. I now have 3 (this is number 2 of 3) and I haven't finished yet!"

"Plays well, sounds great, looks good and I love the equality of volume and tone across the fretboard range. Electro side seems to fairly accurately reproduce the acoustic side but have not fully tested in a llive performance."

"I have been pleasantly surprised with its playability and quality of its sound. It is well made and it also looks good. Chose it over a big-name American guitar - 500 dearer which I had originally thought of purchasing as I generally buy top-of-the-range electric guitars - Gibson-Fender etc. "

"(Series 2) Awesome sounding guitar. Surpasses my needs as an average guitarist. Love the diamond inlays and the feel of the neck. Loved the action also. I took a couple shims out from the bridge to suit me. Doesn't seem to have the ebony fingerboard as stated in the catalogue though. "
