All-mahogany acoustic guitars aren't as common as more familiar tonewood combinations, but they are beloved by many for their uniquely warm and punchy tone.
The Faith Mahogany series achieves the very characteristics that can only be achieved with an all-mahogany acoustic. With a completely solid mahogany construction, these guitars have a very focused tone with great bass and midrange emphasis.
The Mahogany series guitars are very versatile as Mahogany responds to well to any style of playing and this particular the model, the Mars, is a Dreadnought shape which makes it great for strumming and fingerpicking alike.
Here's What Faith Say About the Mahogany Series Mars
Based upon the Patrick James Eggle 'Kanuga' model, this Mars is a classic drop-shoulder dreadnought design. Tonally a great all-rounder, the Mars attracts the player with an eye and ear for tradition.
Faith All-Mahogany models deliver a clear, linear tone which is very sweet and woody with plenty of midrange.
Using Mahogany for both the top and body of a guitar makes for a very “friendly” instrument that responds well to hard picking, strumming and finger-style techniques alike. Further to this, the sound produced is unburdened by overly audible overtones and harmonics, so they perform brilliantly when recording.
