Here is what Faith say about the Blood Moons...

'Faith Blood Moon Acoustic Guitars are strikingly beautiful instruments which uses only the finest, figured Javanese Trembesi for the top, back and sides.

Trembesi - which is admittedly not the most well known of guitar tonewoods - is Indigenous to the Indonesian island of Java, and grows freely amongst the (commercially maintained) timber plantations. Loosely related to the Indonesian Mahogany variants, it has until now been mainly used in the furniture industry, but on one of our regular visits to our workshops in Java, we investigated its tonal properties too... and we're very pleased we did! 

With an appearance not unlike Hawaiian Koa, a solid Trembesi instrument reacts similarly to Mahogany, delivering warmth and balance across the strings, but has an extra little rosewood-eque sparkle at the top end.

The Blood Moon, deep red finish is a subtle burst of ochre,  deep-orange and mid-red stains, and contrasts perfectly with the solid flamed maple binding. 

Each guitar will have its own distinct figuring: Some with straight, pronounced verticle grains; Some with horizontal 'flaming'; and even some with a combination of the two. But regardless of the individual figuring of each model, the tone will be wonderful, and the appearance will be truly unique.'
