In 2003 I was looking for a "proper" acoustic guitar, as my next step up from the Washburn D10 I’d played for ages. A Martin D28 or (drool) D35 being somewhat out of my price bracket, I was about to choose a Simon and Patrick, Seagull or Norman (i.e. a mid-range Canadian guitar) when I discovered the Faith brand. Made by a family-run factory in Indonesia, I tried the Faith Saturn (their ‘dreadnought’ model) and was instantly smitten.

It records beautifully with a condenser mike in front of it, and although I haven’t used the pre-amp output much (as I don’t play ‘live’ with it very often), it’s handy to have… and unlike any other electro-acoustic in its range that I’ve ever seen, it has an XLR output.
