Faith PJE Legacy Dark Roast Earth - Cutaway Electro Acoustic Guitar
The Faith PJE Legacy Dark Roast Earth is only the 2nd guitar to be granted access to Luthier, Patrick James Eggle's sought after Earth body shape. This is a premium spec instrument, built using solid tonewoods, and featuring a wonderful selection of appointments.
Faith have selected a torrified solid African Khya Mahogany top and paired it with matching all solid African Khya Mahogany back and sides. The torrefaction process of the top involves air drying it before roasting it in a kiln with precise controls to reduce its moisture content before re-introducing that moisture as the wood cools. Why, you ask? Well, the resulting timber is more stable and sonically produces a richer, mellow tone which would only normally happen after perhaps 20 years of playing. Faith have also coloured the body with its "Dark Roast" hue, complimenting the guitars smooths low end, well balanced mids and a large headroom at the top end. The body is complete with classy Macassan Figured Ebony binding.
The Earth compact body shape has been carefully though out. It will greatly appeal to players who want a on-intrusive and comfortable acoustic instrument that feels a part of them rather than obstructing them from playing at their full potential. The Earth also provides an ergonomic single cutaway for much improved access to the higher registers of the guitar which is crucial for those intricate lead licks!
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.
