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.
The Spruce top and Mahogany body of each of the Faith Naked instruments is 100% solid tonewood â€“ 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.

Great sound produced with lots of volume.
The solid Mahogany back and sides give a lovely warm woody tone which I like.
I own numerous other guitars one of which is a solid wood Taylor and having played a solid wood guitar nothing seemed to come close.
I chose the Faith because of its solid wood construction and it does not disappoint with sound and volume comparable to my Taylor
As a bluegrass player the Saturn Dreadnaught
will fit nicely with my playing style
I would certainly recommend this guitar"
