Its body shape is based on a Faith favourite, the the baby-jumbo Neptune. The HiGloss Neptune Baritone (£1,099) features a 680mm scale length for tuning to lower registers and features an Englemann spruce top with solid rosewood back and sides and flamed maple binding.

The fingerboard, bridge, headstock plate and heelcap are Macassan ebony.
