FKN - Naked Neptune SRP: £489.00

FKN - Naked Neptune
FKN - Naked Neptune FKN - Naked Neptune

Model Overview

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

The Spruce top and Mahogany body of each of the Faith Naked instruments is 100% solid tonewood – in keeping with all other Faith series. However, the cosmetics and non-essential dressing has been stripped away, leaving the guitars in their natural, Naked state. Satin finished all over, the tonewood is almost entirely unrestricted in its resonant movement, so the tone delivered is far beyond what is normally expected at this price level.

"I have had my eye on a Faith guitar for a while. I demoed this one (Neptune Naked model) against a few other more expensive guitars and kept coming back to it as it played so well (very comfortable neck). Nice crisp sound. Very pleased with it."

"Fantastic guitar for the money. A solid wood guitar with Fishman pickup at this price is a steal. Very happy - so much so I went and bought A 'signature model' too - London Plane tree!"

"I started trying to play 2 1/2 years ago. I decided I could justify an upgrade to my acoustic guitar and the Faith Neptune was the only one that stood out as being in a different league of guitars at the price I could afford. Even I could hear the difference!"

"When I picked this guitar up at FAB music store in Stockport I just didn't want to put it down. I tried other brands triple the price but no comparison at all. Only downside is that I am now having to save up for the Venus Blood Moon as I really need a guitar that I can plug in. Oh well.... :-) "

"First guitar I've purchased as I'm a novice starter but Faith Neptune scored very highly on most surveys. All comments highly rated the acoustic qualities and an online visit to Patrick's workshop clinched it. I previously had music training many years ago and although I allowed it to lapse I retained 'a decent ear' and the Neptune does indeed sound very very nice."

"I already own the Neptune Trembesi Electro acoustic and love the size and shape. The naked is new so needs a bit of time to mature but already has a nice full rich sound. I can't recommend Faith guitars enough. Why people pay silly money for Martin and Gibson when you could own an instrument like these for a fraction is beyond me. Kudos to the Faith players. Easily the best sounding and playing guitar for the money. Buy one now. "
