Here's what Faith say...
The Faith Neptune Baritone HiGloss is the very first Baritone model we have produced. Featuring one of our favourite shapes – the baby-jumbo Neptune – the new Baritone features a longer neck and scale length (700mm) and is fitted with longer, higher gauge strings allowing it to be tuned to a lower register.
Here’s for the slightly technical bit…
A longer scale length means lower registers can be achieved without strings turning all floppy and sounding pretty horrible. The longer neck allows the use of heavier gauge strings which in turn means you can tune each string much lower than usual, yet maintain the correct, playable string tension.
So, you can still tune your Baritone in standard tuning and play the same chord shapes you’re used to, yet achieve a much lower sound. Common standard Baritone tunings include A D G C E A (a 5th lower) or a B E A D F♯ B (a 4th lower).
Where are Baritone guitars used?
A staple of a wide range of musical styles from jazz, hard rock, surf, and even fingerstyle acoustic music. The darker, slightly more ominous tone works perfectly for certain types of music and is nigh-on impossible to achieve on a standard acoustic guitar that typically operates in the higher tuning registers that therefore deliver a brighter sound.
A good Baritone should sound low enough in the mix to stand out from a standard acoustic yet still sit high enough to cut through above the bass. Our HiGloss Baritone features an all-over high-gloss finish that is particularly effective in aiding the natural resonance of the Neptune body shape while ensuring a fantastic level of clarity, string articulation and volume is achieved.
Faith HiGloss series have always been designed to offer both visual and aural beauty, and with the updating to HiGloss-3, we’re sure you’ll agree these wonderful instruments will continue to inspire musicians for generations to come.
Using a more sustainable 3-piece, solid rosewood back design, we can ensure that these incredibly popular models are available longer-term and yet retain all the tonal and visual punch that HiGloss-series afficianados have come to expect. Using high grade Englemann Spruce for the top and highly-figured, 3-piece Rosewood bound in Flamed Maple for the back and sides, HiGloss-3 models also feature solid Flamed Maple binding on the front and use stripy Indonesian Ebony for the fingerboard, bridge, headplate and heelcap.
Tonally, this combination of wood is generally bright and ‘zingy’, delivering great clarity. Visualising this as a frequency curve, it would be shaped like a smile: high on the bass, dipping down through the middle and rising once again at the top end. Therefore greater string separation and articulation is achieved, lending itself to fingerstyle and solo pieces in particular.
This Faith Guitar is fitted with the refined, low-profile Fishman INK3 preamp system with the Sonicore piezo pickup located under the saddle. The preamp features a chromatic tuner, 3 band EQ and volume control. The output jack is located at the base of the guitar as part of the ingenious, easy-access battery compartment. All HiGloss series Faith Guitars are complete with a Faith Hardcase.
