Model Overview

Based upon the acclaimed PJE Legacy Series, the 20th Anniversary Faith models are limited edition instruments built to celebrate 20 years since the inception of the Faith project in 2002, and the creation of our first production models in early 2003.

With only a small number of the 20th Anniversary models available globally, we are pleased to offer the three original Legacy body shapes in this truly premium specification: the Mars drop-shoulder dreadnought; the Neptune baby-jumbo; and the Earth orchestra-model.

The fine Canadian Sitka Spruce tops of these guitars have been kiln-aged through a process of torrefaction or torrefication. The resulting tonewood 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 regular playing to achieve under normal circumstances. This treatment also has its benefits on the appearance too, with it taking on a rich golden colour.

Each FG20 model is adorned with premium Indian Rosewood on the back and sides. Each set of rosewood will have been carefully booked-matched and premium-graded to ensure a consistent tonal quality and an ageless aesthetic. Tonally, you can expect the sparkling highs and rich bass so reliably delivered by this Spruce / Rosewood pairing.

The top of each guitar has an edging of stunning abalone shell and the back of each guitar is bound with richly figured solid Koa surrounded by expertly inlaid abalone. This A-grade abalone shell is also used for the headstock ‘Faith’ logo, which is complemented by the ‘Patrick James Eggle’ signature inlay too, in recognition of Patrick’s own legacy of luthiery.

This Faith Neptune model is based upon Patrick James Eggle's highly acclaimed 'Saluda' shape.
A Baby-Jumbo size with a 16" lower bout, the Neptune is the perfect model for those seeking acoustic power without the physical bulk of a full-sized Jumbo.

On stage, you can rely upon the Fishman Electronics’ excellent Matrix-T-Blend pickup system: their finest offering, combining a condensor microphone and their incredible ‘MATRIX’ undersaddle pickup.

 

Fishman Pre-Amp / Pickup

These Faith models are fitted with Fishman’s Flex-M-Blend preamp. Fishman’s finest offering, this discreet preamp system with tuner blends the brilliant Matrix undersaddle Piezo pickup and an edge-mounted condensor mic. 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 most stunning looking and beautiful sounding acoustic guitar I have ever heard or seen. Just a stunning instrument in every way. I knew from the very first chord I played I would buy it."

"I have had many accoustics in my older years, from Ovation Custom legend to Taylor 914CE, NOTHING comes close to the sound from this guitar. It is pure bliss to play. I also have a Legacy Earth which is a great guitar, but the build and sound of the Twenty is just amazing."

I do not usually leave reviews for the equipment that I purchase, but this is my second Faith guitar and my second review, so that tells you how impressed I am by Faith guitars.

I previously purchased a FG1NCE - PJE Legacy Neptune Cut/Electro (Khaya Mahogany) in October 2022. Not long after purchasing that guitar Faith released "THE TWENTY" limited edition series and I was immediately interested in the Neptune model, not only due to the high-end craftsmanship, for example, the solid figured koa binding, abalone shell edging, the beautiful design/artwork on the fret board, but also because of the 'Indian rosewood' being used on the back and sides of the instrument. 

When testing the guitar, I immediately noticed how open and rich the Indian rosewood sounded, it had both the low end and sparkly highs so often associated with rosewood guitars. The sound of ‘The Twenty’ was sonically exactly what I was searching for, and it especially suited the new music that I have been writing and performing. I required not only an open and full/rich guitar sound but also needed the notes to resonate and compliment the vocal. The guitar gives me a professional sound for the recordings I am currently producing. The internal preamp is very good, the TRS output to stereo feature is great, but this guitar sounds so good that you just need to put a decent mic in front of it and record a performance.

Thanks Faith, for making such a special instrument.

It's a beutiful looking guitar that sounds absolutely wonderful, especially when played fingerstyle. It felt perfect when I tried it in store and the balance between the body and the neck was perfect.
