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.

"Beautiful looks and a great feel. The neck feels fast and comfortable. The body shape is a little larger than I'm used to, but it balances well. "

"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."
