Model Overview

One of the original Faith shapes that launched the brand at the beginning of this century, this left-handed 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.

"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."

"The Saturn HiGloss is a thing of beauty.

"Completely stunning. Took a big risk buying a guitar without having held or played it first - but have been overjoyed with the product. Plays, feels and sounds better than some guitars I've seen at double the price. I couldn't be happier!"
