Faith Mercury Classic Burst
Easy to play, bigger sounding.
This Faith Mercury is a traditional short-scale parlourmodel. The the neck joins the body at the 12th fret instead of at the 14th fret. Therefore the guitar is physically easier to play, sounds much bigger than you would imagine and is also simple to handle and transport. And that makes it a sweet little beauty.

A little beauty, this Mercury is a traditional short-scale parlourmodel. 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.
Using the combination of Red Cedar and Mahogany, Classic Burst models sound as rich and warm as they look. Using a three-tone burst finish, based on deep browns, reds and amber, this finish is intentionally understated and is a personal favourite of Patrick's.
The tonal character will have emphasis on the lower-midrange with a beautifully warm, vocal nature. The Classic Burst models are bound with Solid Macassan Ebony, and use the same high quality timber for the fingerboards, headplates, heelplates, bridges and bridge pins. Faith Classic Burst guitars are complete with a Faith Hardcase.
