In October 2015, the next British Invasion will appear on American soil.
Faith Guitars, the brand created and produced by world-renown Luthier, Patrick James Eggle and a crack team of musical veterans will begin distribution of their precision crafted instruments on U.S. shores in just a scant few weeks. The announcement, which was finalized with Connolly Music has energized many in the industry who are familiar with the quality and artisan craftsmanship of this unique line of guitars.
Founded in 2002, Faith Guitars enjoys a soaring reputation among the international market and guitar enthusiasts and entertainers around the world because of the hand-crafted process each instrument undergoes. Indeed, the entire philosophy behind the company is rooted in combining traditional expertise and superior materials with socially responsible methods of fabrication. And, the results are simply stunning.
Appointed as the exclusive US distributor, Connolly Music will expand its reputation for excellence and continue its tradition of offering superior quality instruments to customers by including the Faith Guitars brand. Jake Connolly, president of Connolly Music, observed that,
“The Faith guitar line embodies a fresh & winning combination of exquisite hand craftsmanship, superb fit and finish, all solid wood acoustic and acoustic/electric guitars with alluring looks, accompanied by an affordable price point – not to mention a dedicated and burgeoning community of followers. It’s no surprise Faith guitars were voted UK’s Best Acoustic Guitar for the past three years.
We are proud & excited to introduce them to select US dealers after 13 years of success in Europe, who we believe will be equally intrigued with such a distinctive offering at very attractive prices – as well as connect those dealers with the current and rising number of interested buyers who have previously had limited chances to find Faith guitars in the US. It is a complete bonus that we are able to work with such a respected partner as Barnes & Mullins in the process.”
One of the aspects that make Faith Guitars so alluring is the fact that every model guitar is crafted from solid tonewood. The solid wood design provides superior tonal clarity and high level of harmonic articulation because each Englemann Spruce soundboard is carefully complemented with other superb tonewood like Mahogany, Rosewood, and exclusive Trembesi. And the lacquer used on each series model (except “Naked”) is applied delicately and with a particular intent (to permit either more or less resonance) so that the guitar both looks and sounds beautiful.
The amazing rise of this brand is due to the outstanding quality each Faith guitar embodies. They have earned their reputation for excellence in many international markets, and Alex Mew, brand manager, commented,
“The Faith team are all incredibly excited by this. We have been building toward this goal for quite some time, and have been working hard to increase guitar production to a level that
can accommodate the demands of the US market. The huge impact that the US has upon other parts of the global guitar market is undeniable, so with our existing strength in the UK, Europe and Australia plus a rapidly growing presence in China, India and other parts of Asia, Faith Guitars customers, artists and players stand to reap many benefits. Connolly Music’s reputation precedes them, and we have every confidence that they will excel in this new and exciting venture.”
Because each Faith guitar undergoes a specific series of steps during hand-crafted fabrication and finishing, naturally, venturing into the U.S. market required a great deal of forethought and preparation. But, the craftsmanship speaks for itself when you hear these solid wood guitars with their clear tones, refined resonance, and gorgeous appearance. Learn more about Faith Guitars.
