The Faith Trembesi Neptune Electro Acoustic is based upon Patrick James Eggle's top notch, highly acclaimed "Saluda" design. In essence a baby jumbo with 16" lower bout giving a huge acoustic power without the huge sometimes uncomfortable size of your average full-size jumbo. Trembesi is a locally sourced timber indigenous to Indonesia where these beautiful guitars are handcrafted and sit somewhere in the middle of rosewood and mahogany in tonal duties. Visually the grain is stunning and perfect for fingerstyle techniques with a loud and responsive harmonic balance.
Faith guitars are built by highly skilled luthiers using solid tonewoods only. The Engelmann Spruce top and solid Trembesi back and sides respond well to all musical styles and inspire many guitar fingerstyle players. Construction is flawless and clean lines are pleasing to the eye with the lower sloped cutaway giving fantastic access and room to navigate the higher register. The tone will improve with age and use developing into a real powerhouse of a guitar with incredible sustain.
The pickup used is a Fishman INK featuring an onboard tuner and volume with 3 band eq adjustment, giving plenty of scopes to recreate that natural acoustic tone anywhere you play. Easy to use and instantly adjustable, a real hands-on preamp.
