Based upon the acclaimed PJE Legacy Series, the 20th Anniversary Faith models are limited edition instruments built to celebrate 20 years since the inception of the Faith project in 2002, and the creation of our first production models in early 2003


The fine Canadian Sitka Spruce tops of these guitars have been kiln-aged through a process of torrefaction or torrefication. The resulting tonewood is more stable – always good when used as a topwood - and aurally, it produces a rich, mellow tone with a mature voicing which would take perhaps 20 years of regular playing to achieve under normal circumstances. This treatment also has its benefits on the appearance too, with it taking on a rich golden colour.


Each FG20 model is adorned with premium Indian Rosewood on the back and sides. Each set of rosewood will have been carefully booked-matched and premium-graded to ensure a consistent tonal quality and an ageless aesthetic. Tonally, you can expect the sparkling highs and rich bass so reliably delivered by this Spruce / Rosewood pairing.


The top of each guitar has an edging of stunning abalone shell and the back of each guitar is bound with richly figured solid Koa surrounded by expertly inlaid abalone. This A-grade abalone shell is also used for the headstock ‘Faith’ logo, which is complemented by the ‘Patrick James Eggle’ signature inlay too, in recognition of Patrick’s own legacy of luthiery.


The FG20’s celebratory pièce de resistance comes in the form of a uniquely designed and hand-inlaid Tree of Life inlay across the 11th, 12th and 13th frets. Each of the leaf sections is an individual piece of abalone, with the trunk section made of Mother of Pearl – designed and realised by Faith guitars artist, percussive fingerstyle guitarist and illustrator, Sean De Burca.

Based on Patrick James Eggle’s ‘Linville’ model, the Earth is a true Orchestra Model (OM) shape and is the newest addition to the Faith family. Although sharing many geometric characteristics with our highly acclaimed Venus shape, the Earth has its own set of distinguishing features that make for a unique tonal palette, plus it is truly unique, having been drawn by Patrick’s own hand.


In true OM fashion, its 15” lower bout is flattened at the base, and at 4.45” deep, its shallow body makes for a comfortable mid-sized guitar.


On stage, you can rely upon the Fishman Electronics’ excellent Matrix-T-Blend pickup system: their finest offering, combining a condensor microphone and their incredible ‘MATRIX’ undersaddle pickup.
