Who Are Faith Guitars?

Faith guitars on display

Faith Guitars was founded in 2002 by a group of guitar experts led by master luthier Patrick James Eggle.

With great attention to detail, along with top-quality craftsmanship, and solid wood construction, the team behind Faith has produced some extremely playable guitars with awesome sound quality, that look very nice too!

Eggle was approached at Summer NAMM 2002 by Brian Cleary, one of the managing directors of Barnes and Mullins, to design some flat-top acoustic guitars for Faith, which had recently formed at that time. They wanted him to design high-quality, all-solid guitars, sold at reasonable prices.

Faith guitars are made in a family-run workshop in West Java, Indonesia, employing highly trained luthiers and skilled woodworkers to craft every guitar by hand. Each one is carefully set up to Eggle’s specifications, so they perform at their very best out of the box.

Recognizing the importance of an ethical and sustainable manufacturing process, Faith Guitars is an official partner of JUST ONE Tree, pledging to plant at least one tree for every guitar that they sell.

Lefty guitarists who play Faith include Mikey Demus (Skindred), Tom Speight, and Sean De Burca.

In 2015, Faith began distributing their guitars in the USA.

What Do I Think of Faith Guitars?

I’m a relative newcomer to Faith Guitars, as I’m only a part-time acoustic player. I had heard of the brand a few years prior, but the first time I’d played a Faith guitar was in 2019 when I went to a guitar show here in England.

As you can imagine, going to guitar shows can be a little frustrating, due to the distinct lack of left handed guitars available! The two friends I went with are both right handed, so they could try pretty much any guitar or bass they wanted. I only had a handful of choices that day.

So when we went upstairs to the acoustic guitar area and happened upon the Faith stand, I spotted a really nice looking lefty acoustic. I can’t remember which model it was, but naturally, I had to pick it up and have a play!

It felt really good to me; so easy to play and it sounded ever so nice!

Since then, Faith has been on my list of acoustic guitar companies to watch. If I ever decide to upgrade my acoustic to something better, Faith is definitely a brand I’ll consider.

Final Thoughts

Faith Guitars make 45 right handed acoustic guitars, of which 43 are available outside the USA and one right handed acoustic bass. I think ten lefty models is quite a decent selection, although unfortunately, they don’t seem to be widely available in the USA.

They are, however, quite easy to get a hold of in the UK, so those of you who are UK or EU-based may find it easier to get hold of one. Those based in the US and other countries could try ordering from a UK retailer if they ship to your country.
