FKN - Naked Neptune SRP: £469.00

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 love how the instrument feels alive in your hands, I can feel the resonance and projection, the cedar top produces a mellow and characterful tone and lovely natural harminics and overtones if you allow the notes to sing. I've noticed a big difference in having the compensated bridge saddle, the intonation stays true all the way up the fretboard."

"So far, very nice. Good tone and easy to play. Overall the finishing is good - there is a small sanding mark on the side of the neck where it joins the body, so technically this is a factory second guitar."

"OUT OF THE BOX , A LITTLE TUNING REQUIRED, BUT NOW ITS SPOT ON, Will leave it to acclimatise for a day or so. Its lighter than my Taylor but is actually nicer to play. Action a little high but that's easy to sort "

"Having played it all afternoon I think the quality, along with the sound, is excellent. For the price I couldn't find anything better."
Adam  
United Kingdom
on 25/11/2018
"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."
David 
United Kingdom
on 28/08/2018
"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. "

Wonderfull song.
My teacher says to me that if i want to stop guitar he will buy my faith because the quality of this guitar is awesome"

"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."
Alan 
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."
Chris 
United Kingdom
on 23/08/2017
"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!"
Chris

"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.... :-) "

"My guitar is such a beauty!! She sounds amazing, and I love everything about Faith guitars. I look forward to buying some more when I grow up and get a job. I'm now at high school and I am trying really hard to compose music. This guitar just does it for me, even though she is imperfect and has her little flaws."

"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."
Philip Martin

Ross

"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."

"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."

Ian

"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."

Ian

"This guitar is aesthetically beautiful and the slim neck fits my hand perfectly. The action was way too high but I've since had it set up and it now feels fantastic. The tone is lovely - rich resonant bass and sparkling high notes which creates a mesmerising whole when finger-picking. I almost burst into tears when I played the intro to "Dear Prudence" today. That's how good it sounds."
Richard

"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. "
Paul 
United Kingdom
on 02/07/2015
"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. "
