Model Overview

One of the original Faith shapes that launched the brand at the beginning of this century, this 12-string 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 Natural series were the very first style of Faith Guitar, and are a classic combination of Spruce and Mahogany

Using high grade Englemann Spruce for the top and satin finished Mahogany for the back and sides, Natural models feature solid Ebony binding and Macassan Ebony for the fingerboard, bridge, headplate and heelcap. Tonally, this combination of wood is generally warm, sweet and mellow, delivering an overall balanced tone.
