Faith guitars have always benefitted from the input of master luthier Patrick James Eggle, but now, for the first time, body shapes used on Patrick's personal range of handbuilt instruments are available as Faith models in the PJE Legacy Series. The FG1HCE PJE Legacy Earth model corresponds to the Patrick James Eggle Linville, an OM-size body perfect for fingerstyle players. Supplied complete with a hard case, this beautiful instrument is really worth checking out in our Glasgow store if you're in the area. Alternatively, buy online with the assurance that it will be fully set up by our in-store, luthier-trained technician before it goes out the door. The set-up can also be tailored to your personal requirements, while we pride ourselves in the speed of our shipping to the UK and Europe.

Faith PJE Legacy FG1HCE Earth designed by Patrick James Eggle

Focusing solely on Patrick James Eggle’s historic acoustic body shapes, Faith's new PJE Legacy Series guitars set a new bar for professional excellence.

The Sitka Spruce tops of these guitars have been kiln-aged through a process of torrefaction or torrefication. The Spruce is air dried before being roasted in a kiln with precise controls over atmospheric and oxygen levels to reduce its moisture content. Then as the wood cools, precise amounts of moisture are re-introduced to the wood. The resulting timber is more stable – always good when used as a topwood - and aurally, it produces a rich, mellow tone with a mature voicing which would take perhaps 20 years of waiting to achieve under normal circumstances. Treating Spruce this way has its benefits on the way it looks too with it taking on a golden-caramel colouring that sees this series radiate an authentic, grown-up vibe.

Paired with a range of African Khaya Mahogany and Rosewood back and sides, these guitars have real power and depth of tone. They also feature solid high-figure, Flamed Maple bindings, Figured Ebony fingerboards and bridges, and bone nuts, saddles and bridge pins. Also for the first time in Faith's history – each guitar has a solid Figured Ebony pickguard. The fit and finish is superb, as you'd expect.

Based on Patrick James Eggle’s ‘Linville’ model, the Earth is a true Orchestra Model (OM) shape and is the newest addition to the Faith family. Although sharing many geometric characteristics with the highly acclaimed Venus shape, the Earth has its own set of distinguishing features that make for a unique tonal palette, plus it is truly unique, having been drawn by Patrick’s own hand. Additionally, it comes stage ready with on-board electronics in the form of elegantly-designed Fishman Flex Blend systems that combine an undersaddle pickup and condenser mic for tonal definition and added percussive clarity.

In true OM fashion, its 15" lower bout is flattened at the base, and at 4.45” deep, its shallow body makes for a comfortable mid-sized guitar.
