I purchased this guitar when I was a teenager for around £500-700. I have to say that it has lasted me extremely well after heavy use and still remains one of my favourite guitars. It doesn't have the smoothness of the more expensive Taylors and Martins, however, it has a unique bright sound that makes it something quite special. My brother recently purchased another Faith guitar to emulate this. He spent a little more on his, however, we both agree that this one still sounds better.
Thinking back to when I first got the guitar, I was not as taken with it as I am now. I do wonder if it needed a bit of 'wearing-in' or perhaps affection just grows with time, I'm not quite sure. I haven't done much recording with this as I would usually opt-in for something a little more high-end for that. All in all, a very lovely guitar, perfect fit for an acoustic singer-songwriter and great for acoustic gigs.
