Faith Naked Mercury, Short-Scale Parlour Acoustic Guitar, Engelmann Spruce Top, Solid Indonesian Mahogany Back and Sides
Parlour sized guitars were incredibly popular during the early-to-mid 20th century, and were frequently seen adorning the dining room or parlor in homes across the US and UK.
This shorter-scale, comfortable to play instrument was great for family get-togethers and street performers as it was much smaller than the dreadnought-sized acoustics of the day.
Shorter Scale, Spruce Top, Mahogany Body, Plays like a dream
The FKM Faith Naked Mercury acoustic is a short-scale Parlour Acoustic that would make the perfect instrument for wandering troubadours, smaller guitarists, or those of you just seeking a big sound from a smaller package.
With a combination of Spruce and Mahogany going into the construction of this guitar's body, you're guaranteed a well-projected, bright tones with a full mid-range and plenty of rich harmonic overtones. Add to this a 2-stage Satin finish, and you've got a guitar that not only sounds great but looks incredible too!
Naked by Name, Naked by Nature
As with all of the other guitars produced by Faith, the Naked Mercury is constructed with only 100% solid tonewood (no veneers). However, any cosmetics and non-essential dressing has been removed, leaving you with a guitar in it's natural, Naked state (hence the name).
The Perfect Gift
Due to the relatively small size and budget-friendly price, the excellent Faith Naked Mercury would make the ideal birthday or Christmas gift for a loved-one looking to take that next step on their guitar playing journey - whether that step is on the road to becoming a traveling musician, street performer/busker, or they've been playing for a year or two and just want something with a better sound than what they currently play, this guitar would be perfect. Or you could always just treat yourself to one.
