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 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. 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.

"Truly excellent. Superb finish. Great sustain even from new. But would expect a better made case, the interior is very poor."

"Played several guitars and found this best suited me. It replaced my guitar purchased 40 years ago and was the best spec/sounding at a price I could afford. I don't play percussive and the guitar was very responsive."

"Great value for an all solid guitar and quality craftsmanship. It produces a very noticeable difference in sound compared to guitars of other brands in the same price range. Only con is the action is a bit too low and makes a fuzzy sound if played too hard. "

"Incredible value for money. For the quality of finish and tonewoods used on this guitar I would easily expect to pay twice the price. If you're in the market for a high end guitar you should definitely check out the Faith Higloss series."

"I am very impresssed with the overall build quality, including nice touches such as the use of TUSQ, Grover machines, D'Addario strings and a humidifier. The tone across the range is splendid, as is the volume and sustain. The hard case seems well made but when I open a lid I like it to stay open so would recommend a longer internal webbing strap to allow this."
