Designed with the non-classical player in mind, the Lyra boasts a neck that is slimmer than a traditional nylon string, but without being so narrow, Faith says, as to hinder playability or proper fingerstyle technique.
Construction woods consist of a solid red cedar top and rosewood back and sides finished with an all-over high gloss lacquer. There’s also a mahogany neck with a figured ebony fingerboard and a figured ebony bridge, as well as a rosewood soundhole rosette.
Electronics come courtesy of Fishman’s Sonitone preamp and pickup, with volume and tone controls mounted inside the guitar’s soundhole.
The HiGloss Lyra Nylon String is available for £865 (approx. $958). For more information, head to Faith Guitars (opens in new tab).
