Model Overview

This Faith Jupiter model is a traditional 17", full-bodied Jumbo guitar that delivers a big, powerful sound, rich in bass and low-end resonance

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.

This model is fitted with Shadow Performer Tuner Preamp / Shadow Nanoflex II Pickup electonics.

"Absolutely amazing! This guitar sounds like butter and the quality of craftsmanship is top notch. This is the finest guitar that I own and have turned several friends onto the Faith company."

"Stunning! I have been playing professionally for 40 years and have other well known acoustic guitars (Taylor/Martin) but I was floored by the tone of this FJHG. I will definitely be on the lookout for another Faith guitar in the near future, perhaps a parlor type."

"This was the first of three Faith guitars which I bought around 10 years ago (maybe slightly younger). Over that time the guitar has got better and better and is a treasured, beautiful sounding instrument.. "

"Nicely manufactured Obvious quality Beautiful sound, easy to play. AND I have not regretted not buying the Gibson that I played and compared it with at the time of purchase. The Faith was recognisably a better clearer sound."

"It was the first guitar I played when I decided I needed a long over due upgrade, I tried maybe 10 more that month and none of them sounded half as good as this guitar! Truly amazed and it's got better with age"

"So far i like it very much. I love the shape, the size .. and the sound of course. Except the guitar has some (minor) finish-wear-marks underneath. I was told the guitar is brand new and never used. Sent from UK to / Scenario As - Musikkinstrumenter last week. Its not a big deal, but the wear-marks shouldn't be there .. after all... if it is brand new.. (?)"

"Honestly - I love it! I like it more with time, too. That said, I often wish it had a slightly more dynamic pickup system, as I find the bass and treble almost always need to be dialled back to less than 10%. I can usually get it to sound OK, though!"

"Sold my 1990 Gibson SJ200 due to size of neck. (having some arthiritus problems)The Faith Jupiter neck is better for my condition I also found the tone easily matches that of the Gibson, in fact I would say the middle tones better.Quality Instrument"

"I used it as a tonal reference point ; nothing, and I mean nothing, came close in terms of dynamics & playability. Every other model was a compromise (even Taylors.....). Pound for pound, the best value solid wood acoustic guitars available. Period !"

"Good sound with strong articulation. However the Action could be better for eased of playing. Can the action be brought lower? Great value guitar with strong built and good tone wood. Would like to know how to adjust the neck of the guitar"
Wah Teng Ooi

"Great sound, great setup, great finish. Build quality is on a par with my Fylde. Plugs in well, better than piezo. Slim neck which takes standard tunings without going out of tune, which is rare. Much better than the price would indicate."
