The Spruce top and Mahogany body of each of the Faith Naked instruments is 100% solid tonewood – in keeping with all other Faith series. However, the cosmetics and non-essential dressing has been stripped away, leaving the guitars in their natural, Naked state. Satin finished all over, the tonewood is almost entirely unrestricted in its resonant movement, so the tone delivered is far beyond what is normally expected at this price level.
Patrick James Eggle explains:
“I think of the Naked models as having the very soul of the guitar exposed for all to hear and experience. Each instrument is uncomplicated and unadorned with unnecessary cosmetics, and as such they fall within the reach of musicians of every level. Each instrument uses high quality, solid tonewoods, with a simple satin finish that lets the guitar breathe and move with no restriction.
The result is an incredibly responsive guitar that longs to be played and will happily show the battle scars of every musical encounter”.
