Model Overview

New for 2017, the Neptune Blood Moon is a beautiful instrument which uses only the finest, figured Javanese Trembesi for the top, back and sides. This indigenous Indonesian timber has long been used by furniture makers for its stunning appearance, but we have been convinced of its tonal properties for a good while too.

Not unlike Hawaiian Koa, a solid Trembesi instrument reacts in a similar way to Mahogany, delivering warmth and balance across the strings, while still having a little rosewood-eque sparkle at the top end.

The exclusive 'Blood Moon' burst finish and solid flamed maple binding serves to enhance its stunning appearance further.

Each guitar will have its own distinct figuring: Some with straight, pronounced verticle grains; Some with horizontal 'flaming'; and even some with a combination of the two. But regardless of the individual figuring of each model, the tone will be wonderful, and the appearance will be truly unique. 

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.

 

Fishman Pre-Amp / Pickup

This Faith Guitar is fitted with the refined, low-profile Fishman INK3 preamp system with the Sonicore piezo pickup located under the saddle. The preamp features a chromatic tuner, 3 band EQ and volume control. The output jack is located at the base of the guitar as part of the ingenious, easy-access battery compartment.

"Fantastic instrument, that is a treasured possession. "

"This is my third Faith guitar, and second Neptune - although the first was trade in for this one. I coveted the Blood Moons since they first came out, and really pleased I finally got hold of one. As expected, not as bright as the Sitka/Rosewood model, but just as loud and beautifully mellow. It was well set up, action maybe a touch higher than my Venus, but plays well. Only dropped a point as the figuring on top is as spectacular as some."

"Superb sound and super-shiny finish, i love this, my first guitar as a drummer! I put on a transparent strumming-protection, because in my opinion it protects from scraches. There are severals, from other guitar-friends -trying before buying-, maybe an adhesive foil could be nice for testing. Great Job!!"

"Overall excellent. Very pleased.
Well built, nice action and a very nice neck. Definitely the sound I was looking for. Easy to play and gorgeous to look at.
There were 4 tiny marks on the back which are under the gloss finish and there was quite a lot of wood dust in parts of the body. Not a deal breaker but making you aware"

"I tried about a dozen guitars in store, and my choice came down to this or a Blue Moon Venus. Narrow win on slightly richer tone for this Blood Moon Neptune. Difficult to fault either on features, build or value given comparable from other brands were around 50% more."

"Absolutely beautiful to look at.
Plays very nice fantastic tone although every things a bit tight because of it being new not had chance to try the electrics only tried the tuner which works a treat but all looks good quality and the hard case looks and feels top notch I really don't know how faith can produce these instruments at this price point I have a first addition twelve string Saturn so this is my second but it definitely won't be the last looking at a parlour now thank you Patrick "

"My new "Neptune Blood Moon" is an absolute joy,... It sang to me!.... The short-list I was road-testing included the Martin D12 and the "Inspired by Gibson" J200.... Once I got my hands on the Blood moon, it took me minutes to make my decision.
For playability my "Blood Moon" was exceptional out of the box. It rang out clearly, and what I heard was vastly superior to my existing dreadnought. The strings were a touch heavy for my taste, but decades of playing Les Paul's and Stratocaster's has made me soft,... I went looking for a long companion, and found it.

I went to the store to just see if I liked the guitar with the view to buying it on payday, but I just couldnt leave without it and bought it on the credit card. I consider myself very fortunate to have such a beautiful guitar."

Matthew

"Having played many guitars over the last 20 years, I remain to be astounded with the quality:price ratio. My Blood Moon Neptune is every bit as good as my Martin which was considerably more expensive. We'll see how she matures but so far, so (very!) good! I tried another few Faiths in the shop too and was tempted to buy them all. Highly recommend picking one up, I dare you not to fall in love just a little bit."

"I have owned a FDS nomad mini Saturn electro acoustic for some years and have been more than pleased with the sound and the quality of build, and having recently sold my Gibson Les Paul I decided to check out the Venus and Neptune ranges of your fine guitars, upon playing the Blood Moon Neptune the guitar was sold before the first chord had stopped
resonating and when it was plugged it sounded amazing. I fully intend to produce a YouTube review in the next few days and I cannot think of a negative thing to say including the helpful and knowledgeable staff at PMT Portsmouth, well done Faith Guitars you are in my opinion well and truly up there with to top manufacturers.

The quality is top notch and is usually seen only in guitars that are 3 to 4 times this price point. I was happy to find only one for sale in the U.S. this December and I quickly purchased.

"It's beautiful! Way better than my playing deserves but I fell in love with it. Had considered a naked model (I'm only a beginner) but I wanted the darker wood and I loved the sound and feel of the Blood Moon Neptune. The only slight niggle is that my guitar has a small mark on the satin section and the store said it can't be polished out because it's below the laquer."

Teething issues: Action quite high (PMT will be fixing this shortly) Case great but the lid strap could do with being a bit longer as the lid tends to drop just when your getting the guitar out and could dent it!"

"Second Faith purchase to complement my mercury natural. Sat with Richard at Richards guitars and this was my eventual selection from 8. The Faith Neptune has a perfect rounded sound and for me is a really good fit even better than the Venus blood moon which was my second choice. Upper fret chords are so easy. The warm rounded tone from the solid trembesi makes the guitar sing and the lingering intonation and resonance is wonderful. Aesthetically it is such a beautiful instrument to behold. I cannot fault it. This is truly a stunning guitar in every way. Fantastic value for money with solid tone woods."
