A little beauty, this Mercury is a traditional short-scale parlour model. With the neck joining the body at the 12th fret - rather than the 14th - the strings are held at a slightly lower tension than on regular models. Another implication of the 12th fret join is that the bridge is shifted further from the soundhole. 

These features result in a guitar that is physically easier to play, sounds much bigger than you would imagine and is also simple to handle and transport

The Spruce top and Mahogany body of each of the Faith Naked instruments is 100% solid tonewood – in keeping with all other Faith series. However, the cosmetics and non-essential dressing has been stripped away, leaving the guitars in their natural, Naked state. Satin finished all over, the tonewood is almost entirely unrestricted in its resonant movement, so the tone delivered is far beyond what is normally expected at this price level.

All Naked guitars are now supplied with a padded Faith Gigbag

"I AM THRILLED WITH MY GUITAR. THE BUILD QUALITY IS FANTASTIC WITH A SOUND TO MATCH. TO GET AN ALL SOLID WOOD GUITAR OF THIS QUALITY IS AMAZING. THE ONLY PROBLEM I HAVE IS THAT THE BRIDGE PINS SEEM A BIT TOO LOOSE AND DONT STAY IN VERY WELL, ESPECIALLY FOR THE 3 BIGGEST STRINGS."

"I typically play Taylor acoustic 6 string and a Martin 12 string. I was looking for a small travel or parlor guitar to practice on while working security job...the Faith Mercury appeal to me because of size and online recommendations, but I was shocked by the tone and playability...I now spend 95% playing my Faith guitar...they are affordable and fantastic."

"I bought this guitar after borrowing one from a friend. The guitar is lovely, but the supplied strings are awful. I had to replace the string peg on the bottom E (6th) because when the string tightened the peg kept popping out. I have a video clip if you'd like to see it."

"The Naked Mercury does exactly what it says on tin. Its a small bodied, all-solid parlour guitar, great for travelling or small gigs. The fact that it is all solid, combined with the outstanding quality from Faith, leads me to believe that Faith makes the best value for money guitars on the market, and in my opinion, the Mercury is one of the best in the range."
