Model Overview

Building upon the acclaimed Naked series of Faith Acoustic Guitars, these Cedar-topped models deliver the same rich sonic performance you would expect from an all-solid Faith Naked guitar. However, the exciting difference is the Solid Cedar top. This highly respected tonewood, widely used in the classical guitar world, offers the player a darker, more mellow tone, which opens up a whole range of new musical possibilities.

Aesthetically, there is further enhancement by way of a richly-stained mahogany back and sides, the trademark satin finish, and special black fittings and hardware. 

In keeping with original Naked series, cosmetics and non-essential dressing has been stripped away, leaving the guitars in their natural, Naked state. Pleasing to the touch, 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.

This Faith Neptune model shape is based upon Patrick James Eggle's highly acclaimed 'Saluda' shape, which is classed as a Baby-Jumbo - with a 16" lower bout. The Neptune is the perfect model for those seeking acoustic power without the physical bulk of a traditional, full-sized Jumbo

This particular FKNCD model uses the full, non-cutaway body shape which means there will get lots of power across the range but with a darker, mellow edge thanks to the beautiful cedar top.

"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 "
