Model Overview

This richly-coloured Neptune model is crafted from solid Indonesian Mango finished with an exclusive golden natural brown stain. Each instrument will be unique of course, with its individual grain accented by the deep, autumnal gold colouration applied prior to the lacquering process.

The stunning body colour is offset by the brilliance of solid flamed Maple binding which graces the outer edges of this guitar.

So, what’s mango wood like?
As you may have seen on the stunning BlueMoon model, mango wood is pretty. Really very pretty in fact, with wonderfully varied flamed grains and sometimes areas of spalting too. Often it has is a mid-brown base colour, but the mango trees that grow across Java, Indonesia (where our workshops are based) tend to be lighter in colour than the more common Hawaiian variant. This is great news, as it allows us to apply stronger colours more successfully.

Mango sits somewhere between a hardwood and a softwood, not dissimilar to Mahogany, Koa or in fact Trembesi (as used on the Blood Moon models). Each log can of course vary in its particular hardness, but we select the stiffest boards we can to ensure the best tone.
If you’re looking for strident power and the ability to push the sound really hard, then perhaps the HiGloss rosewood models would be more appropriate. But, if you long for a crisply articulate and unmistakably warm tone, then Mango may just be what you’ve been looking for. Tonally it’s most comfortable in the upper-bass frequencies, holding through the mid-range, and dropping off at the top. So, with measured playing you’ll find a rewarding sound that successfully combines warmth with remarkable depth.

Perhaps most importantly though, you’ll have a guitar that looks – and sounds – genuinely different to pretty much any other.

Electronics are provided by Fishman in the shape of their respected Sonicore pickup and INK3 preamp system.

Each Faith PRO series guitar is supplied in a wood-shell hard case.

"Awesome sound and beautiful finish and a lovely neck. It arrived this afternoon and I have not been able to put it down since opening the case."

"The Guitar is excellent, but I have recently had to replace the Grover tuning machine head on the B string. The guitar has had very little playing time and so this was quite disappointing not being able to use it for approximately 4 weeks whilst a replacement was sorted under the guarantee. "

"Love this incredible guitar. Amazing warm depth across the bass and mids. Comfortable neck for finger picking and bar chords. tried a few at the music store and this one leapt out of the pack. I am a Faith fan. "

"I have been playing for 40+ years - have had Fenders, Yamahas & Martins - none of these had the tone or the immediate appeal of my Faith Neptune - best guitar I've ever played"

"So far very nice. Its definitely on a par sound wise, and if not slightly nicer to play than my Taylor 224ce-k DLX which cost double the price.
I paid just under 600 for this Faith Neptune, it was on a Black Friday offer, and would definitely still feel happy if I had paid full price.
Case is ok, but will not stay open even on a flat surface,, so maybe a little bit more quality control wouldnt go a miss there."
