Faith Neptune Blue Moon Cutaway Electro-Acoustic Guitar - Blue Moon Finish
A vibrant guitar with Fishman electronics and a beautiful Javanese Mango grain.
The Neptune Blue Moon is an attractive guitar made of the finest Solid Figured Java Mango. This Indonesian timber's beautiful grain pattern has made it a popular choice of furniture makers for a very long time, and now Faith is tapping into its fantastic tonal properties to bring you some very fine guitars.
Tonally, Mango has an unusual flavour somewhere in between the taut vibrancy of Rosewood and the mellow richness of Mahogany. It has its own distinctive warmth and a dark, brooding character with a prominent bottom end. That said, it behaves somewhat similarly to Maple, reducing resonant overtones and feedback, making it ideal for stage performers.
Visually, this guitar is sublime. It has an intriguing grain figuration with a bold pattern unique to each guitar, making yours a one-of-a-kind. The sumptuously Blue Moon stain complements the grain perfectly and gives the guitar electrifying energy that simmers beneath its dark charisma. However your guitar is patterned, rest assured it will sound fantastic and look amazing. Flamed Maple binding compliments the rosette and adds a touch of finery to the whole aesthetic, and the addition of a matching Ebony bridge and fingerboard pulls everything together perfectly.
A satin Mahogany neck and single-cutaway body design work in unison to allow complete comfort and a great degree of freedom as you scale up and down the fretboard. The body shape is also a big contributing factor to its smooth performance; based upon Patrick James Eggle's highly acclaimed 'Saluda' shape, the Neptune is ideal for those seeking acoustic power without the physical bulk of a full-sized jumbo. Its baby-jumbo size provides a great deal of handleability, while its 16" lower bout generates impressive levels of power and depth of tone.
Ideal for live performers, the Faith Neptune Blood Moon Cutaway is equipped with a low-profile Fishman INK3 preamp system and Sonicore piezo under-saddle pickup. This great preamp features a chromatic tuner, 3-band EQ and volume control. Faith has also ensured your Neptune stays in top condition by including a hardcase.
