Product Description

A little beauty, this Faith Mercury FM 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. 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, and sounds much bigger than you would imagine and is also simple to handle and transport.

Faith Natural series were the very first style of Faith Guitar, and are a classic combination of Spruce and Mahogany.

Using high grade Englemann Spruce for the top and satin finished Mahogany for the back and sides, Natural models feature solid Rosewood binding and Macassan Ebony for the fingerboard, bridge, headplate and heelcap. Tonally, this combination of wood is generally warm, sweet and mellow, delivering an overall balanced tone.

This tonal character means that the notes blend together well. Therefore it is ideal for strumming and accompaniment purposes, and when recorded, it sits comfortably in a mix. The guitar is finished with a thin protective lacqeur on the top and satin back and sides. This contrast ensures a good balance between both control and natural resonance.

  • Faith Quality Hardcase Included.
  • All solid wood guitar.
What we say about the FM Mercury

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.
