PJE Legacy THE TWENTY Neptune Cut/Electro
Based upon the acclaimed PJE Legacy Series, the 20th Anniversary Faith models are limited edition instruments built to celebrate 20 years since the inception of the Faith project in 2002, and the creation of our first production models in early 2003.

With only a small number of the 20th Anniversary models available globally, we are pleased to offer the three original Legacy body shapes in this truly premium specification: the Mars drop-shoulder dreadnought; the Neptune baby-jumbo; and the Earth orchestra-model.
The fine Canadian Sitka Spruce tops of these guitars have been kiln-aged through a process of torrefaction or torrefication. The resulting tonewood is more stable – always good when used as a topwood – and aurally, it produces a rich, mellow tone with a mature voicing which would take perhaps 20 years of regular playing to achieve under normal circumstances. This treatment also has its benefits on the appearance too, with it taking on a rich golden colour.
Each FG20 model is adorned with premium Indian Rosewood on the back and sides. Each set of rosewood will have been carefully booked-matched and premium-graded to ensure a consistent tonal quality and an ageless aesthetic. Tonally, you can expect the sparkling highs and rich bass so reliably delivered by this Spruce / Rosewood pairing.
The top of each guitar has an edging of stunning abalone shell and the back of each guitar is bound with richly figured solid Koa surrounded by expertly inlaid abalone. This A-grade abalone shell is also used for the headstock ‘Faith’ logo, which is complemented by the ‘Patrick James Eggle’ signature inlay too, in recognition of Patrick’s own legacy of luthiery.
This Faith Neptune model is based upon Patrick James Eggle’s highly acclaimed ‘Saluda’ shape.
A Baby-Jumbo size with a 16″ lower bout, the Neptune is the perfect model for those seeking acoustic power without the physical bulk of a full-sized Jumbo.
On stage, you can rely upon the Fishman Electronics’ excellent Matrix-T-Blend pickup system: their finest offering, combining a condensor microphone and their incredible ‘MATRIX’ undersaddle pickup.
