Model Overview

Focusing solely on Patrick James Eggle’s historic acoustic body shapes, our 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. 

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 our history – each guitar has a solid Figured Ebony pickguard.

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 our 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.

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.

Fishman Pre-Amp / Pickup

These Faith Legacy models are fitted with Fishman's latest FLEX-BLEND preamp system. Featuring an undersaddle piezo pickup and condensor microphone, greater sound balance is achieved, plus percussive techniques can be fully explored. The preamp features 3 ultra-discreet knobs, a built in tuner, EQ contour control, blend control (Piezo/Mic), and phase control (push to activate). The battery is stored in a special bag located inside the guitar fixed to the neck block, and the jack output is combined with the strap button at the base.

"The guitar only just received, is just great, good action and superb sound, great looks and finish.
Quite a different sound to my Hi Gloss Venus."
on 05/12/2023
"The guitar looks good, sounds good both unplugged and through the amp (I have only elctric guitar amp but it does the job). Condenser microphone gets excited sometimes but phase switch and the volume control can kill the noise. The set up is great from the start. I have changed the strings (the ones from the shop were a bit worn and dull) to the lighter gauge (11- 52 D'Addario phosphor bronze). All works well together and with the 45mm nut playability is great. Suits me better than more common 43mm."

"I was looking for something to inspire me to play more, and it has certainly done that.
It has taken more than a year to choose, having tried guitars from several well known company's.
Faith have given me a very high quality instrument that feels much more expensive than this guitar costs."

"Just got it today. But, so far very impressed. The detail work is impeccable. The frets are the smoothest and best finished of any guitar I have purchased (a lot). Tonally, it sounds awesome. And, it is very easy to play (and I am primarily an electric guitar player)."

"I love it. It stays in tune, plays, and sounds; better than any other guitar I've owned. The integrated tuner is great; but the volume knobs could do with some visual clues, and I can't use strap locks due to the combined strap button / jack."

"Great so far. Love the tuner.

BTW the captcha and NPScore fields on this page are really tedious. Nobody in the UK gives 10. Pointless."
United Kingdom

"I quite like it, apart from the fact that the battery back is just floating around inside the body of the guitar. There is a velcro sticky pad that has no sticky. Where is it meant to be located? How do you change the battery? How do you turn it off?
Also the strings seem a little heavy."

"Excellent tone, action and build. Plays comfortably and well both using figurestyle and plectrum. Great partner for my Patrick Eggle Linville 2005 but at a price at which I am not paranoid about using it outside the home.
Impressed by the electrics and case. I am very please with my purchase."
