Fishman Pre-Amp / Pickup

This Faith Guitar is fitted with the refined, low-profile Fishman INK3 preamp system with the Sonicore piezo pickup located under the saddle. The preamp features a chromatic tuner, 3 band EQ and volume control. The output jack is located at the base of the guitar as part of the ingenious, easy-access battery compartment.

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.

"Gorgeous looking. Beautiful sounding! You'd usually have to spend 3 times as much to get tone this rich and full. I knew this was my excalibur the moment I hit the strings."

"Beautiful warm rich sound. My husband says I now sound like I have years more experience compared to when I played my old guitar (not a faith guitar). The sound is so wonderful it makes me a better player. Also a lovely tone to compliment vocals. The set up is perfect - the action is superb. Love the tuner too. Thank you I enjoy playing this so much."

"Beautiful intrument, carefully built. In store I liked the sound a lot, but now when I play at home it sound a bit too bright and crisp in my opinion. But I assume it will improve with aging of the woods. "

"Good guitar - Not as loud a volume unmiked as I expected.
Would like to know what strings and what gauge are fitted to see if heavy gauge strings would increase depth and volume "

"I am not a great player, being self taught, but have progressed enough to warrant a higher quality guitar. After extensive research I settled on the Faith range, having toyed with Tanglewoods and many others. I am definately not disappointed. Both the finish and the sound are exactly what I hoped for and I cannot see myself picking up my lesser models all that often from now on."
