Overview

Faith FG1RE Legacy Mars Electro Acoustic - Torrefied Sitka Spruce Top, African Mahogany Back and Sides, Includes Hardshell Case

Faith's PJE Legacy Series guitars have been built by focusing solely on Mr Eggle's historic acoustic body shapes. The Mrs, for example, is based on the classic PJE 'Kanuga' model, a drop-shouldered dreadnought with a set of distinguishing features that makes for a unique tonal palette.

A Real Treat to Play, both Aurally and Physically

Based on one of the most famous and popular acoustic guitar designs of the last century - the drop-shouldered dreadnought - this Faith PJE Legacy Mars features a torrefied Sitka Spruce top - prematurely aged to give it the same tonal properties of a much older tonewood - sitting on a back and sides made from African Khaya Mahogany.

The overall result is a guitar with real power and depth of tone, producing sounds that are distinct and harmonically rich, yet incredibly mellow, with a relatively shallow body design that's most certainly comfortable to play.

Torrefaction Process

In order to get the very best out of the solid Sitka Spruce top, Faith have prematurely aged the wood using the kiln-ageing process known as torrefaction. This sees the wood air-dried prior to being roasted in a kiln with precise control over both atmosphere and oxygen levels to reduce moisture content, with moisture then re-added in precise amounts as the wood cools.

The torrefaction process leaves the Sitka Spruce with the same tonal characteristics that is normally achieved through 20 years of maturing to achieve under normal circumstances.

Premium Appointments

No high-end Faith guitar would be complete without its array of premium-grade extras to help it achieve such lofty heights, and the Legacy Mars is no different. Featuring solid high-figure, Flamed Maple bindings, figured Ebony fingerbords and bridges, bone nuts, saddles and bridge pins, and (a first for Faith) a solid figured Ebony pickguard, this guitar guitar oozes class from every pore.

Spread the Cost

Whilst the cost of this Faith PJE Legacy Mars most certainly reflects the quality of the guitar, it may seem a little out of reach for some of you. However, here at PMT we have a wide range of finance options available (including with 0% Interest), which will help you spread the cost over several months!
