The Faith Mercury – A Music Gem

My Faith Mercury

I posted a piece about my Faith Mercury last year but it bears repeating because it still brings me so much pleasure to play.

We have all been spending more time at home and may continue to do so, so it’s a good time to learn something new — like playing guitar.

This is an all solid wood parlour guitar, spruce top, trembesi back and sides, so it’s a bit more expensive. Mercurys, like all the Faith models, come in a variety of versions. The cheapest is the ‘naked‘ version, with solid mahogany back and sides and matt finish solid spruce top.

Mercurys are easy to hold and play, perfect for kids, or for anyone to learn the guitar. It’s also great for doodling on the settee, all thanks to its smaller size, scale and 12th fret neck join.

Ideal for women especially, in my opinion, because historically this is pretty much exactly like the kind of guitar ladies used to play in their parlours!
