The Faith HiGloss Mercury FMHG is a short-scale parlour model.The HiGloss series uses a combination of the highest quality Spruce and Mahogany.
Faith Mercury HiGloss FMHG
A little beauty, this Faith HiGloss Mercury FMHG is a traditional short-scale parlour model. 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. These features result in a guitar that is physically easier to play, and sounds much bigger than you would imagine and is also simple to handle and transport.
Both visual and aural beauty are key in the design for the Faith HiGloss series. The top uses high-grade Englemann Spruce. This is complemented by highly-figured Rosewood on the back and sides. HiGloss models also 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. Therefore lending itself to fingerstyle and solo pieces in particular.
- Faith Quality Hardcase Included.
- All solid wood guitar.
What we say about the FMHG
As a short scale parlour, what this guitar has in extra abundace, alongside tone, is comfort. With a body that is small and easy to work around, and a shorter scale relaxing the tension on the strings, this guitar plays like a dream.
