Sound — 10
Sounds so good. Tried loads of different 12 strings, but none compared to the Faith for sound and price come to mention it.

Overall Impression — 10
It is perfect for playing Bon Jovi style riffs. Apart from that I mainly play acoustic covers, which it is very well suited to. I have been playing for about 7 years and this along with my Norman 6 string are an essential part of my gigging. If it were stolen or lost, I would definitely buy a Faith guitar again.

Reliability & Durability — 10
I have gigged a few times with this guitar in the past and will do again in the future. I would always have a backup with me, but that is no reflection on the guitar.

Action, Fit & Finish — 8
Guitar had been on the shelf for about a year, as it is not really a known brand. I'm not too bothered about going for the obvious choices and am not influenced by name. Unfortunately, the guitar did need the rod tightening after a string change as the action was slightly raised when the string tension was released, but is sweet as now.

Came with Faith gig bag, a spare set of strings, umpteen picks. Solid top, matt finish without scratch board.
