Faith FSGNHSY Neptune Signature Honeyed Sycamore

This guitar is from the Faith Patrick James Eggle Signature line. These represent the very best of what Faith can produce and include many features above the standard production models including tonewoods usually reserved for only the most exclusive instruments. They benefit from precision-finished solid wood back strips and end strips. Each guitar also features a 45mm unbleached bone nut and bone saddle, plus nickel plated Grover 18:1 ratio machineheads Faith Signature guitars are supplied in a Faith Hardcase.

Patrick James Eggle explains:

“I am immensely proud of these fine guitars, and have found the process of creation genuinely inspirational. Being able to use British timbers such as Rippled Sycamore, London Plane Tree or ancient Bog Oak is such a joy.

Each of these domestic tonewoods has its own distinct voice and visual style, and matches the Englemann Spruce tops perfectly. Adding a 45mm nut profile and using unbleached bone from Bali for both nut and saddle, each instrument is made that little more special and sets itself apart from the crowd perfectly.”

Rippled Sycamore is an indigenous wood from the UK and is the British relative of the broad leaf maple species frequently found in North America and famously used in guitar building. When matched to high grade Engelmann Spruce, the tonal properties are akin to maple with a relatively dry and crisp tone that offers both power and clarity. The beauty of this British wood is complemented by a luxurious, light, honey-tone stain and solid Rosewood binding, back strip and end strip.
