Fishman Pre-Amp / Pickup

This Faith Guitar is fitted with a Fishman Isys-T preamp (named Presys-T from 2019), and sonicore pickup. The output jack is combined with the strap button with a battery box fitted to the base of the guitar. The preamp features a Tuner, a contour button - choosing a flat EQ or a scooped EQ , and a phase button.

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

The Spruce top and Mahogany body of each of the Faith Naked instruments is 100% solid tonewood – in keeping with all other Faith series. However, the cosmetics and non-essential dressing has been stripped away, leaving the guitars in their natural, Naked state. Satin finished all over, 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.

The Naked Neptune Electro is equipped with Fishman Electronics for ease of amplification. 

All Naked guitars are now supplied with a padded Faith Gigbag.

"I got a good one! Tried one on display which was inferior to a Taylor I tried - sounded "dull". The one that I purchased out of the box sounded very much better and was on a par with the Taylor. I'm 69 and started taking lessons so no expert. I'm really enjoying playing it. Nice jumbo frets - my fingers are a bit wider than aveage apparently."

"Obviously finished to very fine tolerances. A high quality instrument. Extremely playable with a very comfortable neck. Beautiful clear tone and excellent volume and projection. Responds well dynamically to different picking and strumming styles. A joy to own and play! Thank you Faith."

"Awesome! Years ago, I had a gorgeous unlaquered mahogany guitar (another big name brand) but ever since selling it I wanted something that was equally as stunning as it.
I found Faith as I researched and the minute I played this, its felt like "MY" guitar. I'd come home. In between first seeing it and buying it, I managed to talk my Dad into buying a Venus Bloodmoon! So definitely sold on the quality build of Faith guitars."

"Having played it all afternoon I think the quality, along with the sound, is excellent. For the price I couldn't find anything better."

"Honestly ... too soon to tell. The build quality seems fine and I like the simplicity of the Naked Series ... which was what attracted me to the guitar in store. I haven't gigged it amplified yet, so I've no idea about the electric sound in a bigger venue. Acoustically, it sounds good ... but I might try a lighter gauge of string for the kind of material that I mostly play."

"Having spent a few months with my FKNE, I love it more and more each day. It is easy to play, and it absolutely sings. It easily sounds just as good as guitars three times the price. The satin finish is beautiful, as is the overall simplicity of the design. "

"Still playing it in, but it really sings! Beautiful guitar, insane price. A lot of guitar for the money. Love it more than my Martin. Not played it plugged in yet but you can't go wrong with Fishman. I am impressed and very happy."

"Elegant design, generous use of solid tonewoods, balanced sound. Comfortable to hold and play, smart subtle touches. Engelmann spruce top rather shockingly white, but maybe it will mellow over time. Fantastic value."

"Early days but so far excellent. Sounds better or as good as Taylors and Martin's up to X2.5 the price. One small gripe is that the knobs on the pre-amp seem to catch on the lining of the hard case when inserting the guitar."
