Model Overview

New for 2017, the Neptune Blood Moon is a beautiful instrument which uses only the finest, figured Javanese Trembesi for the top, back and sides. This indigenous Indonesian timber has long been used by furniture makers for its stunning appearance, but we have been convinced of its tonal properties for a good while too.

Not unlike Hawaiian Koa, a solid Trembesi instrument reacts in a similar way to Mahogany, delivering warmth and balance across the strings, while still having a little rosewood-eque sparkle at the top end.

The exclusive 'Blood Moon' burst finish and solid flamed maple binding serves to enhance its stunning appearance further.

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. 

This Faith Neptune model is based upon Patrick James Eggle's highly acclaimed 'Saluda' shape.This Faith Neptune model is based upon Patrick James Eggle's highly acclaimed 'Saluda' shape.

A Baby-Jumbo size with a 16" lower bout, the Neptune is the perfect model for those seeking acoustic power without the physical bulk of a full-sized Jumbo.

"Nice sound, some build quality problems. Had to re-glue wires into body and the rear pin fell out during first gig due to flimsy screw. "

"Excellent guitar, extremely aesthetically pleasing and has the sound to go with the look. I would be paying a fortune for a Martin or Gibson acoustic with these specifications.

"Just the sound I was looking for. Brighter than a Martin Dread and has some interesting harmonics. This guitar has a very unique sound and I love it. The quality is top notch and is usually seen only in guitars that are 3 to 4 times this price point. I was happy to find only one for sale in the U.S. this December and I quickly purchased. I predict this will be a major brand in the U.S. in the next few years!"

"It's beautiful! Way better than my playing deserves but I fell in love with it. Had considered a naked model (I'm only a beginner) but I wanted the darker wood and I loved the sound and feel of the Blood Moon Neptune. The only slight niggle is that my guitar has a small mark on the satin section and the store said it can't be polished out because it's below the laquer."

"Quality top class, looks absolutely beautiful, sound/tone could not ask for more excellent, materials of construction first class.
Negative ponts, absolutely none. "

"Looks and sounds amazing, love it! Great value. I spent weeks looking at different guitar makes and this won easily.
Teething issues: Action quite high (PMT will be fixing this shortly) Case great but the lid strap could do with being a bit longer as the lid tends to drop just when your getting the guitar out and could dent it!"

"Beautiful figuring in the Trembesi wood, faultless gloss finish. Set up almost perfectly for me straight out of the box. Sounds excellent, as expected, as I already have a Venus and Jupiter. The Neptune fits neatly in the middle."

"Delighted with the new Neptune Blood Moon. Has set off to buy a Martin and was willing to pay more up to 2,000. but the warm sound and the look of this guitar beat any martin until I was paying more than 2,000."

"I'm really impressed with the quality, value for money, including the case, but mostly the rich deep sound that resonates longer than any other guitar I've tried, ( love it )"

"I like the guitar but for some paper work missing and the strap and battery cover fell apart which I had to fix myself with a bigger screw I am happy "

"Second Faith purchase to complement my mercury natural. Sat with Richard at Richards guitars and this was my eventual selection from 8. The Faith Neptune has a perfect rounded sound and for me is a really good fit even better than the Venus blood moon which was my second choice. Upper fret chords are so easy. The warm rounded tone from the solid trembesi makes the guitar sing and the lingering intonation and resonance is wonderful. Aesthetically it is such a beautiful instrument to behold. I cannot fault it. This is truly a stunning guitar in every way. Fantastic value for money with solid tone woods."
