The Sitka Spruce tops of these guitars have been kiln-aged through a process of torrefaction or torrefication. The Spruce is air dried before being roasted in a kiln with precise controls over atmospheric and oxygen levels to reduce its moisture content. Then as the wood cools, precise amounts of moisture are re-introduced to the wood. The resulting timber is more stable – always good when used as a topwood - and aurally, it produces a rich, mellow tone with a mature voicing which would take perhaps 20 years of waiting to achieve under normal circumstances. Treating Spruce this way has its benefits on the way it looks too with it taking on a golden-caramel colouring that sees this series radiate an authentic, grown-up vibe.
They also feature solid high-figure, Flamed Maple bindings, Figured Ebony fingerboards and bridges, and bone nuts, saddles and bridge pins. Also for the first time in our history – each guitar has a solid Figured Ebony pickguard.
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.
"Bright, articulate with sufficient depth and flexibility to use in an acoustic duo and rock band.
The built quality is flawless and look pleasingly understated. The flex blend seems to cope with and sonic requirement and environment. "
"LOVE IT.... big sound, good balance all the way up the neck "
"I was lucky to get the new factory boxed model not the demo one. Soundwise - very good, but it had some minor issues lookwise - some almost invisible dents on the top and tiny lacquer crack at the edge of the rosette. So 98% perfect. But the keeper."
"Stunning looking Guitar with a great full tone and brightness, comes with a fantastic case for its protection. Looking forward to many years of playing."
"It's a very robust and articulate instrument."
