Faith FNCEHG Hi-Gloss Neptune Cut/Electro

Product Code:
Show description

A beautiful model from Faith guitars, with exceptional build quality, components, and a bright, rich tone.

This Faith Neptune model is based upon UK luthier 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 HiGloss series are designed to offer both visual and aural beauty. Using high grade Englemann Spruce for the top and highly-figured Rosewood for the back and sides, HiGloss models feature solid Flamed Maple binding and Macassan Ebony for the fingerboard, bridge, headplate and heelcap.

 

Tonally, this combination of wood is generally bright and 'zingy', delivering great clarity, and this Neptune is no exception. Visualising this as a frequency curve, it would be shaped like a smile: high on the bass, dipping down through the middle and rising once again at the top end, lending itself to fingerstyle and solo pieces in particular.

 

This model is fitted with Shadow Performer Tuner Preamp / Shadow Nanflex Pickup electronics and comes complete with a hard case.
