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. 

Our FG2 Legacy Series models pair the wonderfully mature aesthetic and tonal character of kiln-aged Sitka Spruce tops with truly stunning highly-figured, book-matched 2-piece Rosewood back and sides. This combination delivers on all fronts, offering exceptional visual beauty and producing a rich, seasoned tone with a bright, articulate charm and bags of clarity.

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 on Patrick James Eggle’s ‘Linville’ model, the Earth is a true Orchestra Model (OM) shape and is the newest addition to the Faith family. Although sharing many geometric characteristics with our highly acclaimed Venus shape, the Earth has its own set of distinguishing features that make for a unique tonal palette, plus it is truly unique, having been drawn by Patrick’s own hand.

In true OM fashion, its 15” lower bout is flattened at the base, and at 4.45” deep, its shallow body makes for a comfortable mid-sized guitar.

Fishman Pre-Amp / Pickup

These Faith Legacy models are fitted with Fishman's latest FLEX-BLEND preamp system. Featuring an undersaddle piezo pickup and condensor microphone, greater sound balance is achieved, plus percussive techniques can be fully explored. The preamp features 3 ultra-discreet knobs, a built in tuner, EQ contour control, blend control (Piezo/Mic), and phase control (push to activate). The battery is stored in a special bag located inside the guitar fixed to the neck black, and the jack output is combined with the strap button at the base.
