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 Eclipse series were conceived as 'stage guitars': instruments that offered workhorse functionality and optimum performance capability. Using the same structure and tonewood combination as the Natural Series - Spruce and Mahogany - the Eclipse models are finished with a Black stain and a clear PU lacquer all over. The lacquer serves to control the tonewood resonance a little, resulting in a more predictable and focussed tone when performing on stage. 

Further to their aesthetic appeal, Eclipse models feature solid Flamed Maple binding as well as using Macassan Ebony for the fingerboard, bridge, headplate and heelcap. 

This model is fitted with Shadow L4020HEX Stereo Preamp / Shadow Nanoflex 6 Pickup electronics. 

From mid-2017, Faith Guitars will begin shipping with Fishman electronics. Find out more HERE.

"I'm delighted by the acoustic sound, it's terrific. Thus far, experiments have shown it to be slightly brittle when plugged in - but still very good. I'd love to hear a Faith with something like a Fishman Aura built-in :)"

"Great guitar, it plays great, sounds great. The finish is beautiful, but it does track fingerprints but who cares. I prefer oiled or satin necks but this finished neck is one of the smoothest and best I've ever played without stickiness. "
