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 upon the Patrick James Eggle 'Kanuga' model, this Mars is a classic drop-shoulder dreadnought design. Tonally a great all-rounder, the Mars attracts the player with an eye and ear for tradition.

"Incredible guitar, good looks, really low action, compares really well with some extremely high end guitars I have owned"

"Arrived, unpacked it and it was in tune !
This Guitar is a sheer joy to play, It sounds rich with clarity, great dynamics and plays lovely. It is a high class instrument and to me as good as if not better than other big name top end guitars that cost way more and I did a lot of research. It looks and feels finished to a high quality. Case is not heavy so easy to transport. Very pleased and been playing it for hours...."

"I love this guitar, not the least reason being that for the price it plays easily as well as the other guitars I own (another serial collector...) which are all expensive brands.
This guitar is now my go to instrument!"

"The Mars Legacy is one fantastic guitar! Well built, and better yet, the tone is wonderful - base, sustain, and volume - everything you want from a dreadnought. Playability is great - set up is perfect for me. This is my third Faith guitar, and like all others will receive a very favorable review on www.fatherirenaeuswilliams.com"

"Beautifully constructed, good playability and sustain. Just a minor point which I'm told will mellow? is that the Tone is a tad bright. I understand that this may be the Torrified Spruce Top bedding in?"

"Very happy, very impressed - love the on-board Fishman Blend too. There is a slight string buzz when strummed a little harder on the low e and a. I'll see how it is after a string change - may need a truss rod tweak."

"Excellent tone and build. Not sure why there are standard fitted Fishman and LR Baggs Pick-ups in the same model of guitar? "
