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.Specifications:
