A little beauty, this Mercury is a traditional short-scale parlour model. With the neck joining the body at the 12th fret – rather than the 14th – the strings are held at a slightly lower tension than on regular models. Another implication of the 12th fret join is that the bridge is shifted further from the soundhole.
These features result in a guitar that is physically easier to play, sounds much bigger than you would imagine and is also simple to handle and transport.
Faith Eclipse series were conceived as ‘stage guitars’: instruments that offered workhorse functionality and optimum performance capability. Using the same structure and tonewood combination as the Natural Series – Spruce and Mahogany – the Eclipse models are finished with a Black stain and a clear PU lacquer all over. The lacquer serves to control the tonewood resonance a little, resulting in a more predictable and focused tone when performing on stage.
Further to their aesthetic appeal, Eclipse models feature solid Flamed Maple binding as well as using Macassan Ebony for the fingerboard, bridge, headplate and heelcap.
Comes with hard case.
