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! "
