Model Overview

Focusing solely on Patrick James Eggle’s historic acoustic body shapes, our new PJE Legacy Series guitars set a new bar for professional excellence. 

The Sitka Spruce tops of these guitars have been kiln-aged through a process of torrefaction or torrefication. The Spruce is air dried before being roasted in a kiln with precise controls over atmospheric and oxygen levels to reduce its moisture content. Then as the wood cools, precise amounts of moisture are re-introduced to the wood. The resulting timber is more stable – always good when used as a topwood - and aurally, it produces a rich, mellow tone with a mature voicing which would take perhaps 20 years of waiting to achieve under normal circumstances. Treating Spruce this way has its benefits on the way it looks too with it taking on a golden-caramel colouring that sees this series radiate an authentic, grown-up vibe. 

They also feature solid high-figure, Flamed Maple bindings, Figured Ebony fingerboards and bridges, and bone nuts, saddles and bridge pins. Also for the first time in our history – each guitar has a solid Figured Ebony pickguard.

Based on Patrick James Eggle’s ‘Linville’ model, the Earth is a true Orchestra Model (OM) shape and is the newest addition to the Faith family. Although sharing many geometric characteristics with our highly acclaimed Venus shape, the Earth has its own set of distinguishing features that make for a unique tonal palette, plus it is truly unique, having been drawn by Patrick’s own hand.

In true OM fashion, its 15” lower bout is flattened at the base, and at 4.45” deep, its shallow body makes for a comfortable mid-sized guitar.

"Wonderful tone, beautiful to look at and a pleasure to play. Can't put it down. The only slight concern was that the Low E String Bridge Pin doesn't go in fully. Hence 9/10 below"

"Excellent tone, action and build. Plays comfortably and well both using figurestyle and plectrum. Great partner for my Patrick Eggle Linville 2005 but at a price at which I am not paranoid about using it outside the home.
Impressed by the electrics and case. I am very please with my purchase."

"Early days, but feels and sounds really good. I'm a beginner, so not really qualified to give an experienced opinion, but my guitar teacher played it and liked it (he plays a blood moon Faith amongst others ) nice case too. "
