Fishman Pre-Amp / Pickup

This Faith Guitar is fitted with the refined, low-profile Fishman INK3 preamp system with the Sonicore piezo pickup located under the saddle. The preamp features a chromatic tuner, 3 band EQ and volume control. The output jack is located at the base of the guitar as part of the ingenious, easy-access battery compartment.

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 HiGloss series are designed to offer both visual and aural beauty. Using high grade Englemann Spruce for the top and highly-figured Rosewood for the back and sides, HiGloss models feature solid Flamed Maple binding and Macassan Ebony for the fingerboard, bridge, headplate and heelcap.

Tonally, this combination of wood is generally bright and 'zingy', delivering great clarity. Visualising this as a frequency curve, it would be shaped like a smile: high on the bass, dipping down through the middle and rising once again at the top end, lending itself to fingerstyle and solo pieces in particular.

"It's amazing! The timbre is so vibrant and colourful. Satin neck makes it super smooth to play. It was my first proper guitar to buy after I finished with my starter guitar and I do not regret it one bit! I will never part with this guitar. It looks beautiful with the solid rosewood and abalone and the velvet green lined hardcase is a bonus. Just bought a blood moon Venus to add to my growing faith collection. My favourite guitar brand by far! "

"A truly beautiful guitar with tremendous tone. Fits and plays like a guitar 3 times the cost (and I did try a few before I bought this!). Ordered unseen but when arrived it was spectacular with the most wonderful marking within the redwood. They say each is unique and this proves it. Will be difficult to better."

"Pleasing to behold and pleasing to play: bright, sweet resonance; better for finger picking than plectrum strumming."

"I have had many hrs of pleasure from this guitar, although I have one problem. A split appeared a year after I purchased it and I took it to Barnes and Mullin, they where very helpful but as it was a few days out of warranty they couldn't help. Sad!"

"(Series 2) Awesome sounding guitar. Surpasses my needs as an average guitarist. Love the diamond inlays and the feel of the neck. Loved the action also. I took a couple shims out from the bridge to suit me. Doesn't seem to have the ebony fingerboard as stated in the catalogue though. "

"I have just found THE guitar! Absolutely blown away by the design, craftsmanship, quality and playability. And the sound right out of the very nice case is more than I had hoped for: rich, articulate, and beautifully balanced. The figured rosewood back and sides are simply stunning! The included Kyser Lifeguard Humidifier is a lovely and thoughtful touch. Seriously impressive all round."

"Very good price,quality. The wood already starts to become yellow and alive. Very good for fingerpicking, less good for strum. The sound is very thick and classy."
