Model Overview

A truly stunning, exotic beauty with a distinctive voice.

The Neptune Blue Moon is a truly individual instrument. One of the beauties of genuinely solid, natural tonewoods is that each piece of solid timber used will vary in its natural colouration and its particular grain patterns. So your Blue Moon will be as unique as you and your music.

Tonally, Mango has an interesting character. It is not as loud and punchy as rosewood nor as straightforwardly mellow as mahogany, yet it bears its own distinctive warmth. With frequency prominence starting a little below that of mahogany and dropping off a little earlier in the mid-range, the overall tone could be described as dark and moody. Much like maple guitars, the reduced level of resonant overtones makes the Mango-bodied Blue Moon a perfect stage guitar: Eminently controllable, balanced and resistant to feedback.

Mango trees grow freely right across the Indonesian archipelago, so the timbers used on Blue Moon guitars are sourced close to our workshops in Java, Indonesia, and as always, from certified timber merchants.

Finished with flamed Maple binding, Macassan Ebony fittings, Fishman Electronics and complete in a hard case, your Faith Neptune Blue Moon is sure to intrigue and delight you at every turn.

Fishman Pre-Amp / Pickup

This Faith Guitar is fitted with the refined, low-profile Fishman INK3 preamp system with the Sonicore piezo pickup located under the saddle. The preamp features a chromatic tuner, 3 band EQ and volume control. The output jack is located at the base of the guitar as part of the ingenious, easy-access battery compartment.

"LOVELY GUITAR (style AND substance) but would have preferred a blended pickup option (mic + under saddle). Obvious guitar rattle noticed especially when playing 6th string - discovered it originated from BATTERY YELLOW CLIP HOLDER. It doesn't hold battery firmly enough. Rattle eliminated when I put a soft foam strip between yellow clip and side of battery compartment.
I think the guitar sounds better with 11-52 strings (more resonant than the supplied-new-12's). I had previously understood that the vibration/resonance of small body guitar tops was impeded by heavier strings. Overall, great guitar!"

"Absolutely stunning. Lovely rich, well balanced tone. Have restrung with a set of Martin Retro Monel 10s purely for easier bending. Exacting craftmanship and gorgeous to look at, it is the nicest acoustic I have ever owned and a pure joy to play. 10/10."

"Like her sister the Bloodmoon a very rich and differentiated sonority, not as loud as the Jupiter (I own them all three) but very smart, no dead spots, easy to play (for an old man)."

"Well considering I've only had it a day or so. I cant get over how much easier it is to play compared to my other acoustic guitar. The set up is amazing, it's so easy to change/ slide from cord to cord, I'm barely touching the strings to play its absolutely bonkers how light of touch you need. Really liking the build in tune and cant wait to see what it sounds like plugged in. Love the colour and the case is excellent. "

"I went to the store to look at a Blood Moon Neptune but the Blue Moon was far more subtle than the online photos suggested and lured me toward it. My first "serious" guitar, it has a great sound and a look that makes me want to pick it up. Each finish is unique with variations in grain and burst colouring ranging from very dark to quite bright blues, some with hints of green when the light is right, so take your time to compare if you can. I have only suffered minor flame-envy once so far. The setup out of the case seems good from my relative-novice perspective and it holds its tuning well. Plugging into a Boss Katana Mark 2 the tone is nice, to my ears at least. The only very minor thing to watch out for are fingerprints on the high-gloss finish! The included case is good and solid. It might be a little Bungle-esque when it comes to the lining but is a secure fit and provides a good level of protection. Overall, a great thing! :)"
