Faith Eclipse series use the same Solid Spruce and Solid Mahogany as the natural series, but are finished in gloss black. This black lacquered finish helps produce a rich yet more linear tone ideal for reliable stage work. Faith Eclipse guitars are bound with Solid Flamed Maple and feature Macassan Ebony fingerboards, headplates, heelplates, bridges and bridge pins. This Faith Guitar is fitted with the refined, low-profile Fishman INK3 preamp system with the Sonicore piezo pickup located under the saddle. The preamp features a chromatic tuner, 3 band EQ and volume control. The output jack is located at the base of the guitar as part of the ingenious, easy-access battery compartment. All Eclipse series Faith Guitars are complete with a Faith Hardcase.
