Reluctantly selling my Faith Signature Series (Patrick James Eggle) OMC. Brought as an investment and played only once at home... Just doesn't justify keeping it!
Guitar is in almost new condition with an ever so tiny haze to the lacquer where the binding from the body meets the neck (see photo)
These guitars are extremely rare and were designed by Patrick James Eggle and made by hand by another highly commendable company called Furch Guitars
No expense spared at all on these lovely instruments, the Faith Signature range were only produced for a short time. The Patrick James Eggle limited editions (10 of each model) were issued first and the 'Signature' series were subsequently issued due to extra demand with only around 30 of each 3 models being made before the range was discontinued.. This guitar is number 9 in that range.
The only difference to the Patrick James Eggle limited edition guitar is that it doesn't feature Patrick's signature on the headstock and the binding is Bubinga rather than Bloodwood.

This particular model was one of only a few to ever get 5 out of 5 in all categories (build quality/sound quality/value for money) in Acoustic Magazine (Feb 2010)
I have PDF copies of all the magazine reviews and the signature brochure that can be supplied on request

Below is an extract from the Faith Signature brochure:
Faith Signature Series...
The guitar you’ve always promised yourself.
The Faith Signature series are three examples of the finest acoustic
guitars you will play; designed in the UK by arguably Britain’s most
revered Luthier, and made in the heart of Europe by one of the finest
guitar workshops you will ever see. You will soon feel the difference that
Patrick’s hand has had in the creation of these beautiful instruments.
With the finest grade tonewoods, to the insistence on the finest of
finishing detail, you can be confident that your next guitar meets the
exacting standards required to carry Patrick James Eggle’s very own
These are not guitars you’ll take on tour lightly. They are very
personal instruments that you will play for your own unique pleasure.
Write with, yes. Record with, certainly. Let a roadie near, we think not.
“For a guitar to carry my signature I have to be completely confident
in its ability to perform. So when Faith asked me to create three
models that would go head to head with the most prestigious guitars
around, I decided to keep to what I know the best, namely quality of
tonewood and meticulous craft. I have spent my whole life building
guitars for some of the most demanding musicians around, and I
would have no hesitation in recommending Faith Signature guitars to
every professional I know. I’m sure your Faith Signature guitar will
bring you many years of musical fulfilment.”
This F-OMC is a truly comfortable,
player’s guitar. Its smaller, shallower
body and satin-finished, mahogany
neck ensure the instrument balances
perfectly in the player’s hands.
Tonally, the Solid Spruce maintains
clarity and the Solid Rosewood gives
a great, punchy bass response with
defined harmonics and sparkly
