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

Faith Trembesi instruments are a relatively recent addition to the Faith range. Indigenous to Indonesia – where the Faith workshops are based – this beautifully grained, exotic Trembesi wood sits comfortably between the tonal offerings of Mahogany and Rosewood.

Using Engelmann Spruce for the top and Solid Indonesian Trembesi for the back and sides, each guitar looks quite traditional until the exotic timber is revealed upon closer inspection. Trembesi series guitars will respond well to strumming and finger-style techniques alike, with the frequency curve starting high, dipping a little and rising once more toward the top. The resulting sound is remarkably loud and responsive with evenly balanced harmonics.

"This is my second neptune (the other being a naked series).
The finish on this guitar is stunning!
It is flawless.
The trembesi has got a little more sparkle than the naked series, but is still vary warm.
The action seems a little lower as well which suits my playing style.
Overall absolutely amazing.
Would I swap it for any other brand?
NO.
If you are worried you will be sacrificing build quality, aesthetics or tone compared to higher priced guitars Don't.
Buy a Faith and never look back."

"Excellent quality as always. The Trembesi series are my favourite, they really do sit in between Mahogany and Rosewood in terms of tone. The Neptune shape is really versatile, the set up was excellent straight out of the box and I can't believe how perfect the intonation is. Thank you."

"I love it. It is so easy to play and very light.
I love the way it looks and feels and the fact the neck is so slim, which helps me as I have small hands. Definitely the best guitar I have purchased to date."

"The guitar is lovely and great value for money. The only slight criticism would be that when it is plugged in it can be a bit spikey tonally on the top end, so you have to be careful with ypur EQ, although this does tend to be endemic with piezo pickups."

"It sounds as beautiful as it looks; have used it for several gigs so far and have had a lot of comments from other guitarists about how good it sounds. After a week or so I made the mistake of getting the dealer to lower the action: it spoiled the sound, fret buzz all over the place, so had to shim the saddle up. I'm hoping you will be able to supply a replacement saddle."

"Beutiful tone and begs to be played every day. However if played unplugged finger style (no plectrum)it is not really loud enough to play at open acoustic nights etc. Plugged in it really is the business, best with anti-feed bung fitted to sound hole"
