Model Overview

VOTED THE UK'S BEST ACOUSTIC GUITAR 2014

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

Faith All-Mahogany models deliver a clear, linear tone which is very sweet and woody with plenty of midrange.

Using Mahogany for both the top and body of a guitar makes for a very “friendly” instrument that responds well to hard picking, strumming and finger-style techniques alike. Further to this, the sound produced is unburdened by overly audible overtones and harmonics, so they perform brilliantly when recording.

"Great sound. Well built. Quality materials. Good value. Nearly bought a Taylor but glad I found this. WeHaveSound were excellent too."

"As a professional of many years I wanted a guitar with volume unplugged and a warm sound. I'm still trying to get the perfect sound whilst amplified. I cover many styles and techniques in my working life so getting the perfect sound matters.
Other top name brands of a similar price just didn't cut it. Just wish you made a feedback buster"
