Fishman Pre-Amp / Pickup

These Faith Legacy models are fitted with Fishman's latest FLEX-BLEND preamp system. Featuring an undersaddle piezo pickup and condensor microphone, greater sound balance is achieved, plus percussive techniques can be fully explored. The preamp features 3 ultra-discreet knobs, a built in tuner, EQ contour control, blend control (Piezo/Mic), and phase control (push to activate). The battery is stored in a special bag located inside the guitar fixed to the neck black, and the jack output is combined with the strap button at the base.

Focusing solely on Patrick James Eggle's historic acoustic body shapes, our new PJE Legacy Series guitars set a new bar for professional excellence.

The Sitka Spruce tops of these guitars have been kiln-aged through a process of torrefaction or torrefication. The Spruce is air dried before being roasted in a kiln with precise controls over atmospheric and oxygen levels to reduce its moisture content. Then as the wood cools, precise amounts of moisture are re-introduced to the wood. The resulting timber is more stable - always good when used as a topwood - and aurally, it produces a rich, mellow tone with a mature voicing which would take perhaps 20 years of waiting to achieve under normal circumstances. Treating Spruce this way has its benefits on the way it looks too with it taking on a golden-caramel colouring that sees this series radiate an authentic, grown-up vibe.

They also feature solid high-figure, Flamed Maple bindings, Figured Ebony fingerboards and bridges, and bone nuts, saddles and bridge pins. Also for the first time in our history - each guitar has a solid Figured Ebony pickguard.

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.

"It is lovely, but I didn't like the DR strings - they sounded a bit dull to my ear - so I changed them for Elixir Nanoweb Phosphor Bronze 13s and now it sounds lively and has good note separation when strumming. I love the sustain. It also has a very playable neck and action (even with the heavier gauge strings)"

"Beautifully crafted guitar with excellent range. The body shape is the perfect size for me. Surpassed my expectation for a guitar under $1500. "

"Very nicely made guitar which sounds good plugged or unplugged. Maybe you could include some instructions about changing the battery as it is in a relatively inaccessible position? Also some small position markers on the rotary knobs would be a useful addition."

"Absolutely love this guitar. Have other Faith guitars but this is a significant upgrade. Like the fact it has a slighter wider nut than my other Faiths. Love the sound. The looks and finish are exemplary. Feels like a real professional machine. Faith have excelled themselves again!"

"Bright, articulate with sufficient depth and flexibility to use in an acoustic duo and rock band.
The built quality is flawless and look pleasingly understated. The flex blend seems to cope with and sonic requirement and environment. "

"I was lucky to get the new factory boxed model not the demo one. Soundwise - very good, but it had some minor issues lookwise - some almost invisible dents on the top and tiny lacquer crack at the edge of the rosette. So 98% perfect. But the keeper."
