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.
Faith Natural series were the very first style of Faith Guitar, and are a classic combination of Spruce and Mahogany.
Using high grade Englemann Spruce for the top and satin finished Mahogany for the back and sides, Natural models feature solid Ebony binding and Macassan Ebony for the fingerboard, bridge, headplate and heelcap. Tonally, this combination of wood is generally warm, sweet and mellow, delivering an overall balanced tone.

It was bought for me by my late wife and I can't think of a more fitting way to remember her than with this absolutely amazing guitar. She knew I always wanted one when I first saw them on the Faith website and planned to buy one for my 50th birthday. My only other Faith prior to this was a Naked Neptune. Tragically she was taken ill long before this but made me order it from from my local guitar shop shortly before she passed, unfortunately she never got to see it., but I know she is with me whenever I play it.
It is a true work of craftsmanship and the bog oak is just beautiful. This is my most treasured guitar and a truly precious instrument in more ways than one. I have since bought another Faith for 'everyday playing', a mahogany Nexus in Copper Black which despite the smaller price tag is equally stunning and lovely to play. Thank you to all at Faith."
sales rep's info as to condition, playability etc.
and understood it was in excellent condition, but
without the OHSC.
It arrived 5 days later, in the case and in perfect condition, to say I am pleased would be
a gross understatement. It it must be brand new, and a display item hence the uncertainty about the case."
