Hello everyone, After buying a new guitar on last March (a Breedlove discovery ce) I thought that would be enough for me, at least for a while, but I recently fell in love with a Faith saturn trembesi... In fact I would like an all solid wood guitar... Not that the Breedlove is bad but the sound sometimes doesn't fulfill me completely. Is it worth the expense, according to you? Or I'd better wait and spend bigger money on something different (Taylor /Martin) later on? Thanks!!!
Derick Has the most experience with Faith guitars here.
I did some research last month and found 2 dealers in my area. Well, not in my area, they're 40-50 miles away in either direction. I haven't gotten there yet. I asked them what they had in stock and it was only a fraction of the Faith catalog. I remember one of them saying they were getting a shipment in early October. Hmmm... NO!!! RESIST!!! I'm going to look at a used Seagull Artist next Saturday!!
barbasteu, If you look in the Faith Guitar section I have a little more information. You may see there that there is a high possiblity of me getting the Faith Blood Moon, Trembesi all solid wood guitar, later this year. At present I own the Faith Mercury Parlour Guitar, absolutely fantastic Guitar. Must admit I am a big fan of Faith Guitars, and if possible try playing one for yourself, you maybe more than plesently surprised. 😀
Tallman Instruments (just across the river in Northern Kentucky) is one of the US Faith dealers -- less than half an hour away from where I live in Cincinnati. If I had an extra thousand dollars to plunk down, I'd go check them out... But not having the cash, I don't want to set foot in there!

About three months ago one of the local guitar shops took delivery of two Faith Blood Moon Guitars, I went to the shop two days later, they had both gone. They should be getting two more in about six weeks, it's taken them that long to get a restock, as I said before as rare as rocking horse poo. The problem with getting one is, a lot of people have not heard of Faith Guitars, but if they go in to a shop with one on display, they are so good looking they are very hard to resist picking up and trying, then at that point they are very hard to put down again, it's one of those rare Guitars that sound and play even better than they look. 😀 At the time I bought the Faith Mercury Parlour Guitar, would go as far as to say it's the best guitar I have ever had.
