Faith Naked Series FKN Neptune Acoustic Guitar
What We Think
FKN Naked Neptune
Faiths Naked series Baby Jumbo, aptly named Neptune is a fantastic option for someone looking for the fullness and warmth of a Jumbo guitar but find them a little big or cumbersome. When it comes to raw yet smooth sound to go with raw yet smooth look and feel, the naked series delivers. The woody tone Faith are going for is clear, the natural fullness of the sound pleases the ear and keeps you wanting to play. The Solid Back and Sides make every note resonate beautifully and the Patrick James Eggle X-Brace Design Bracing only encourages the resonance. With a Solid Engelmann spruce top along with solid Indonesian mahogany back and sides the stripped down style means a far from stripped down sound, in fact the wood is far less restricted than other guitars at this cost, allowing the wood to better resonant. The classic Mother of Pearl 'F' on the 12th Fret is the only flashy element on this a fantastic full sounding acoustic guitar in a more comfortable body.
The Faith Naked series are stripped of pretty much all unnecessary adornments to create an uncomplicated, exposed, high-quality guitar with all the quality expected from Faith but at a more affordable price. This hand crafted, Mahogany and Spruce, Baby Jumbo guitar is one of the most beautiful and natural instruments Faith have created. If your style is raw, natural and clean then the Faith Naked series could be for you.
These naked, stripped back guitar models have been designed to offer the very essence of the Faith brand at a more accessible price point than their other models, an idea extremely appealing to many modern guitarists.
The Faith brand doesn`t lend itself to a `budget` build though so don`t be fooled into thinking these are anything less than quality guitars. Whilst seeking to make Faith guitars that were more accessible to a larger number of musicians Faith creator, Patrick James Eggle and the rest of the Faith team set out to strip back their guitar designs whilst still retaining all the key Faith elements. Faith pride themselves on producing hand-crafted, all-solid, immensely resonant guitars and this hasn`t changed with this Naked series.
Hand crafted by skilled Luthiers, this guitar retains the integrity of tone which Faith guitars possess but by removing some of the more fussy cosmetic adornments the FKN Neptune is available at a very affordable price. The Naked Neptune guitar consists of a Solid Engelmann Spruce top and Solid Mahogany back and sides; a two-stage satin finish all over; a rosewood fingerboard, bridge and head plate; chrome plated Machine heads; and a 2mm abalone sound hole rosette.
The FKN Neptune has a Mahogany back and sides and as such delivers a tone focused on the mid-range. The tonal characteristics would look like a frown if visualised on a frequency curve; lower at the bass, curving up through the middle and dipping again at the top end. The Neptune`s tone is warm and sweet meaning all the notes blend well together. This makes the Naked series ideal for strumming and accompaniment purposes and means it will sit comfortably in a mix when recorded.
Faith believe Satin finished guitars sound livelier as the unrestrained tonewood can move more freely allowing more sympathetic resonance throughout the instrument and creating a more naturally `woody` tone. This tone is equally evident in the Naked Series which has a simple 2-stage satin finish on the top, back and sides letting the guitar breathe and move with no restriction.
