Gotta have Faith!
Hand-built using all solid tonewoods in a family run workshop in Indonesia, Faith Guitars pride themselves on the quality of their workmanship. World-renowned British luthier, Patrick James Eggle is the man behind their sleek design and superb playability. All Faith guitars are made from ethically sourced select solid tonewoods – no laminates used here!!! The spruce, cedar and maple is FSC certified and obtained from tonewood timber merchants across North America and Europe. The mahogany, rosewood, trembesi and ebony timbers are sourced locally in Indonesia through official local government certified merchants. The British or European timbers used in the Signature Series are sourced through specialist timbers merchants in the UK.
Patrick James Eggle built his first guitar as a school project when he was just fifteen years old and carried on the fine art of guitar building gaining a reputation among players and artists. After setting up his own company, working in the UK and USA, Patrick was approached by Faith Guitars suggesting he moved his workshop to their headquarters in Shropshire, England and lead their growing team of guitar experts.
Faith Guitars have made a name for themselves with their amazing value for money, excellent quality and great sound frequently winning awards including UK’s Best Acoustic Guitar several years running (MIA Awards 2012-2016).
