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.

The Naked Neptune Electro is equipped with Fishman Electronics for ease of amplification. 

All Naked guitars are now supplied with a padded Faith Gigbag.


Fishman Pre-Amp / Pickup

This Faith Guitar is fitted with a Fishman Isys-T preamp (named Presys-T from 2019), and sonicore pickup. The output jack is combined with the strap button with a battery box fitted to the base of the guitar. The preamp features a Tuner, a contour button - choosing a flat EQ or a scooped EQ , and a phase button.

"Love these guitars....previously owned a Naked Venus, I'm a beginner/intermediate but found the Venus to be very intuitive and comfortable to play. Sounds fantastic, even with my chubby fingers hammering away at the strings! I have now purchased a naked Neptune and I am expecting no less quality and playability level."

The guitar sounds huge."

"Outstanding workmanship, playability and tone that's far exceeding what you can normally expect in an instrument in this price band. Brilliant value for money."

"I was influenced by the reviews of the Faith guitars, the quality, sound and value for money were all recommended. This Neptune has lived up to my expectations and led to me making good progress with my guitar playing. Comfortable and easy to play, great guitar."
United Kingdom

"Very impressed with this, I needed a 'couch' guitar and tried a few in the £250-£300 range, but they felt like balsa wood next to the Faith, well worth that little extra. Solid, resonant and beautiful but understated, can't put it down! Love the 'Faith' ethos as well, so a proud owner."
United Kingdom
on 08/05/2020
"It's agrand guitar with lovely tone. I inherited this but it doesn't tally with the specs I've read as it has, amongst other thgings, what looks like a rosewood fingerboard and bridge not ebony."
United Kingdom
"I got a good one! Tried one on display which was inferior to a Taylor I tried - sounded "dull". The one that I purchased out of the box sounded very much better and was on a par with the Taylor. I'm 69 and started taking lessons so no expert. I'm really enjoying playing it. Nice jumbo frets - my fingers are a bit wider than aveage apparently."
United Kingdom

"Obviously finished to very fine tolerances. A high quality instrument. Extremely playable with a very comfortable neck. Beautiful clear tone and excellent volume and projection. Responds well dynamically to different picking and strumming styles. A joy to own and play! Thank you Faith."

"Awesome! Years ago, I had a gorgeous unlaquered mahogany guitar (another big name brand) but ever since selling it I wanted something that was equally as stunning as it.
I found Faith as I researched and the minute I played this, its felt like "MY" guitar. I'd come home. In between first seeing it and buying it, I managed to talk my Dad into buying a Venus Bloodmoon! So definitely sold on the quality build of Faith guitars."

United Kingdom

"Honestly ... too soon to tell. The build quality seems fine and I like the simplicity of the Naked Series ... which was what attracted me to the guitar in store. I haven't gigged it amplified yet, so I've no idea about the electric sound in a bigger venue. Acoustically, it sounds good ... but I might try a lighter gauge of string for the kind of material that I mostly play."

"Having spent a few months with my FKNE, I love it more and more each day. It is easy to play, and it absolutely sings. It easily sounds just as good as guitars three times the price. The satin finish is beautiful, as is the overall simplicity of the design. "

"Still playing it in, but it really sings! Beautiful guitar, insane price. A lot of guitar for the money. Love it more than my Martin. Not played it plugged in yet but you can't go wrong with Fishman. I am impressed and very happy."

"Elegant design, generous use of solid tonewoods, balanced sound. Comfortable to hold and play, smart subtle touches. Engelmann spruce top rather shockingly white, but maybe it will mellow over time. Fantastic value."
United Kingdom
on 24/11/2017
"Early days but so far excellent. Sounds better or as good as Taylors and Martin's up to X2.5 the price. One small gripe is that the knobs on the pre-amp seem to catch on the lining of the hard case when inserting the guitar."

"Its such a well balanced sweet sounding guitar, great low end with sweet highs. Reminds me of Maton guitars and a little bit like Martin dreadnoughts. Well crafted and setup, action a bit high, but thats normal on any new guitar. Rob Chapmans review was spot on.Its a bargain for an all wood guitar. I love it, best guitar Ive ever had and ive had quite a few."

on 10/09/2016
"Beautifully made, very well set up, plays like a guitar 4 times the price and sounds amazing!
Can't ask for a better instrument at any price.
The naked cherry burst finish sets this guitar off and it sounds so natural and unrestrained.
Can't put this guitar down for long."
United Kingdom
on 11/07/2016
"The guitar is beautifully set up and plays so easily, The sound is rich and full (probably helped by the satin finish).
The only slight niggle I have is a small amount of adhesive on the binding for the fingerboard, it's visible to me which is annoying."
United Kingdom
"I absolutely love it. Sounds lovely, looks equally good, sounds amazing when plugged in. No gloss finish lets the wood resonate freely. You can feel each vibration when the guitar is placed against your body."

"This is my second faith guitar, my other is a Saturn hi gloss. I was looking at a Mercury eclipse but it really didn't gel with me. This naked Neptune is so warm and resonant. A real pick me up and play me guitar. Lovely balanced tone. Not drednought boomy but plenty of bass and lots of sparkle. Strums well and a dream to pick. Feels nice, light and a very comfortable shape. The naked finish is great and completely different to my hi gloss. Nice to have 2 really different guitars. The woods are not as pretty or well matched as the hi gloss but the naked package really works. It's almost better for this and adds character. Electronics are spot on. I've adjusted the action on both guitars, I always do. Action was medium so quickly lowered. Beautifully finished though as with every faith guitar I've played. I'd thoroughly recommend this guitar and when you add the price into the equation it's a steal. <br /> I wouldn't be without it. This is a very 'friendly' guitar that is a joy to play. "
