Well, it was actually 2 days ago...

Anyway, got myself a Faith Mercury High Gloss electro acoustic

Some specs:
Solid Englemann Spruce top
Solid Rosewood back and sides
Shadow electronics preamp

Ebony fingerboard and bridge
Grover tuners with ebony heads

Review:
Simply put, this guitar is amazing, I honestly cannot find a single thing wrong with it.
It was either this or a Takamine New Yorker which I tried out alongside this, and although the Takamine was also a very nice guitar which I would recommend to anyone on a lower budget (I could only really get this because the shop I got it from (Andertons) had a 9 month 0% finance deal), I just kept picking this up after playing the Takamine and thinking "wow, this resonates sooo much more". It's perfectly setup, I wouldn't change a thing about it, it's tone is amazing, it has a lot of balance, it gets highs from the spruce and mids and lows from the rosewood very nicely, and as I said, is VERY resonant and loud for its size. Speaking of size, it's quite a small guitar, but the body is quite deep, and it comes with a hardcase (a seriously nice one as well) so you won't have problems finding a hardcase that it fits in nicely.
I plugged it straight into my computer yesterday through my Cakewalk audio interface to do some recording and the electronics are brilliant, it sounds really natural and crisp, and the EQ works well, although I haven't tried out the phaser much yet so I can't comment on that.

Overall 10/10, get it, I honestly don't think I'm going to buy an acoustic from any other company ever again now

Congratulations! I love the spruce & rosewood combination. What size of guitar is that? It looks smaller than a full-sized dread.

Never heard of Faith myself before. That's a very beautiful instrument you've got there. Congrats!
