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. 

The Spruce top and Mahogany body of each of the Faith Naked instruments is 100% solid tonewood – in keeping with all other Faith series. However, the cosmetics and non-essential dressing has been stripped away, leaving the guitars in their natural, Naked state. Satin finished all over, the tonewood is almost entirely unrestricted in its resonant movement, so the tone delivered is far beyond what is normally expected at this price level.

This model is fitted with a side mounted Fishman Electronics Presys1 preamp and undersaddle Sonicore pickup. 

All Naked guitars are now supplied with a padded Faith Gigbag. 

Fishman Pre-Amp / Pickup

This Faith Guitar is fitted with a Fishman Isys-T preamp (named Presys-T from 2019), and sonicore pickup. The output jack is combined with the strap button with a battery box fitted to the base of the guitar. The preamp features a Tuner, a contour button - choosing a flat EQ or a scooped EQ , and a phase button.

"Unable to try before buying because of Covid restrictions. I had read the reviews and they were all very positive. However, it's even better than I thought! I love it - it sounds great and is very easy on the fingers. Sounds just as good when plugged in! Amazing!"

"It's just great. The FDS-Mini Saturn Nomad smaller series guitar is fabulous for playing when relaxing in an easy chair. A well made guitar with good sound and tone and appeal."

"Es una excelente guitarra calidad precio. Su sonido me enamor desde el primer momento, aunque su esttica no me gustaba mucho, pareca que estaba sin terminar. Ahora ya me gusta todo de ella. Mi duda al comprarla estaba entre esta y una Martin 100 ms cara, pero por sonido y suavidad al tocarla gan mi Faith. "
