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 guitars use a gloss-lacquered Solid Engelmann Spruce top matched to HiGloss finished Solid Rosewood on the back and sides. The classic combination of Spruce and Rosewood delivers a bright and harmonically rich timbre. Faith HiGloss guitars are bound with Solid Flamed Maple and feature Macassan Ebony fingerboards, headplates, heelplates, bridges and bridge pins. This Electro model features the Shadow NanoFlex II undersaddle pickup and Shadow Performer Tuner preamp system.
This guitar comes with a Faith Hardcase an a soundhole humidifier.
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.
This model is fitted with Shadow Performer Tuner Preamp / Shadow Nanflex Pickup electronics.
