Pre-owned 2009 model.

Very good condition, fully set up with Elixir Nanoweb 12-53 gauge strings.  Aftermarket Headway Pickup and Pre-Amp. Original hard case included.

Has some minor dings and scratches.

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 Natural series were the very first style of Faith Guitar, and are a classic combination of Spruce and Mahogany. 

Using high grade Englemann Spruce for the top and satin finished Mahogany for the back and sides, Natural models feature solid Ebony binding and Macassan Ebony for the fingerboard, bridge, headplate and heelcap. Tonally, this combination of wood is generally warm, sweet and mellow, delivering an overall balanced tone.
