Faith Mars Legacy Mahogany Electro Acoustic
Without a doubt this Faith Mars Legacy Mahogany Electro Acoustic is one of the most polished and highly spec'd Faith guitars made to date.
The solar system inspired planet name 'Mars' refers to the size and shape of body, and within the Faith model line up this name represents the traditional dreadnought sized bodyshape. A hugely influential and popular shape throughout centuries of guitar building thanks to it's bold, balanced tone that made it such a great all rounder for practically any genre of music. This Mars Legacy guitar takes this shape and adds curved shoulders for a retro rounded look and alternative overtones.
The premium nature of this fine instrument means Faith have selected a Torrified Sitka Spruce top and sonically matched it with set of all solid African Khya Mahogany back and sides. This sweet combination results in resonant, warm overtones and a rich bottom end, but with a high end bite or crispness provided by the Spruce to deliver a balanced response.
As standard on this electro-acoustic instrument players will reap the benefits of a set bone nut, saddle and pins. Bone has become renown over many decades as the material of choice for many pro luthiers and guitar craftsman due to it's stability and strong anchor like quality that allows for the transfer of string vibrations to the body.
As well as an upgraded pro Faith branded hardcase, owners of this model will also love the innovative Fishmann FLEX system that is installed on this guitar. The FLEX pickup and preamp use the power of a 9v battery and a tiny condenser microphone to offer the player access to accurate volume, bass and treble control on the fly as well as a tuner for added convenience.
