What We Think
Another great model in faiths Naked series, the electro-acoustic Neptune does more than keep up the high standards set by the rest of the range. The naked series delivers when it comes to raw yet smooth sound to go with raw yet smooth look and feel. 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.
Faith Naked Series FKNE Neptune Electro Acoustic Guitar
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, Concert Cutaway 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 FKNE 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. This Electro Cutaway FKNE Neptune model also features the same Shadow PerformerTuner preamp and Nanoflex pickup found on the Faith Natural series.
The FKNE 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.
Faith believe Satin finished guitars sound livelier as the unrestrained tone wood 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.
