"I am so happy that the staff at Berlin guitars has shown this great guitar . It is like it was made for me . the best of all i tried. I just wantet to have a look, but then i couldnt leeve her there, i had to take her Home.My guitar teacher is amazed. I love my venus"
"Looks good but I will not be using it yet. "
"Mine was a gift, the best gift I've ever had. Chosen by an accomplished guitarist, I myself am still learning but picking her up everyday is an absolute joy. My guitarist friend is also in love with her, she plays like velvet!"
"First new guitar since I was 18 (I'm now 30). Worth the wait"
"I have had the same 3 guitars for the last 20 years.I purchased this guitar with a view to pushing my playing to a higher standard.The feel and sound of this beautiful electro- acoustic will spur me on to further learning.I am sure I will be enjoying it for years to come..."

"Haven't had enough time to properly play it yet, but love it so far."

"Well made and finished, great acoustic sound, clarity and sustain excellent. Comfortable to play. (Not tried via the pre-amp yet)."
"I adore this guitar! I sold a Variax and a Taylor to get it and boy, am I pleased I did! My bandmate was so jealous of it that he immediately went and ordered a Faith too! Fantastic build quality and a stunningly beautiful instrument both to play and to look at. It shouldn't be possible to get such a high quality instrument for this price, but somehow they've pulled it off. I test-played Martins and Taylors but until I hit a price bracket three times the cost of this guitar, nothing came close."
"great guitar with a great sound"
"It's a great quality instrument . Great value for money and very pleased with it.. beautiful tone and finish . I will lower the action slightly but that's to be expected on a new guitar .

"Really happy with the way it plays and the feel of the guitar. An excellent finish and the guitar is exactly as described."
"Beautiful looks, feel & tone. Having tried several guitars in the store, including some literally several times the price, this one stood out as being not only excellent value for money but the best sound. "

"First impressions are very good with a good sound a nice set up & build quality, plus good quality hard case. Excellent value for money"
"My guitar, plays perfectly, has a tone unmatched by any other guitar and harmonics ring amazingly"
"I absolutely love this guitar. It took me months of looking at guitars before i came across the faith range, and i was convinced from the first time i played one. Whenever i go to a guitar shop, i play guitars that are more expensive as a comparison and my faith comes out on top. It is just great value!!!"
"Beautiful instrument with a lovely sound. It's so much fun to play!"
"Great guitar, the best guitar I've had. "
"A wonderful sound, beautiful shape, easy playing. Sounds clear and strong - much better than my old guitar. Will motivate to improve my playing...Much guitar for a reasonable price"

"Fantastic! Big Sound. Incredibly crisp. I'm a beginner(playing instrument. Really happy with the choice I made."
"Went for a taylor & tried the venus high gloss.did a direct comparison with every taylor cut away in the shop.The faith just fit me and my style. Sounds corny but this little baby chose me.The size just right,cool cutaway shape & rich sound. Superb "
"Like it very much although the action on the bass side is a little high for me.
"I ONLY HAVE IT A FEW HOURS BUT I LOVE IT ,VERY HAPPY WITH IT"

"First impressions: Very well made. Not difficult to play. Great sound. Nice to look at. "
"Sounds wonderful, looks and feels beautiful,design and finish superb. A lifetime purchase."
"Good action, although the Bottom E String tends to buzz if played fairly loud. The tone is mellow and rounded with each string being distinct and clear. The guitar looks good cosmetically. I have not tried the electrics."
"I have had an Aria 12 string guitar since 1979 but this is a considerable improvement. It has a very easy action and a warm tone. I was put off slightly at first sight by the absence of inlays and shiny lacquer but appearance is not everything is it?"
"It is a beautiful instrument, very well made of fine materials, sounds wonderful and is a joy to play. I love it."
"It's absolutely amazing! Such a rich tone and a beautiful guitar made with precision and high quality. Really happy with the purchase. "
"Bought this guitar for its 1 Tone, 2. Looks, 3. Value

"Beautiful guitar, beautiful sound."
"Very nice indeed. Compared to previous guitars used/owned such as Taylor and Takamine, this is a very high standard and extremely playable. "
"Only purchased yesterday, early days so still finding touch. Very good quality and easier to play than other 12 strings I've played. Excellent tone and a good volume even though not as big a body as a dreadnought. "
"I love my guitar. Ideal for al the music I play- whether strum along, fingerpicking , arpeggios or acoustic lead. The tonal range and sheer playability is a delight "
"Brilliant I'm thrilled I wanted one for so long"
"Love it, resonates marvelously, nice smell also. "
"Really beautiful guitar with fantastic tone and great playability. Sounds brilliant through an amp too. Bought on a visit to Richards Guitars Stratford upon Avon where I tried lots of quality guitars but just kept coming back to the FVHG. Delighted! "
"Categorically "Blown Away" ! I cannot put my new venus down, I have tried and i pick it straight back up again.sound,build,feel and playability is quite simply in a universe of its own.And i've only had it 9 hrs ...... !"
"It was a 60th birthday present and I went with my wife to Cadno Music to try out a number of guitars in this price range. The Venus was the one that made me cry while playing, it was so pure and perfect. It is still pure and perfect 6 years on."
"Absolutely wonderful, for a 70 year old youngster trying to learn how to play!"
"So far, having come from a Taylor 110 12-string, and a Taylor 310 6-string, I'm really impressed. "
"I've been playing for over 30 years and this is the nicest guitar I've owned. The finish, set-up and quality, with all solid tonewood construction is simply incredible at this price. Beautiful to look at, to play and to listen to. An absolute gem."
"Went to the shop to try out some Martins, Taylors, Gibsons and Yamaha's. None of them said buy me, then I noticed the Faith Stand and picked up the Venus. I knew within the first minute it was coming home with me. Makes me sound good."
"All I want to do at the moment is play it but I'm tired and need to go to bed! It's beautiful and i'm thrilled with it, nicest guitar i've ever owned (after 20 years with a £200 Yamaha).
I need to play in the strings still but i'm loving the tone."
"GOOD QUALITY MANUFACTURE * FANTASTIC TONE * SOUNDS GREAT THROUGH MY FISHMAN AMP * ACTION MAY BE A LITTLE TOO HIGH * "
"Following a friend's advise playing a Faith guitar, I ordered one. My Venus guitar has a great sound, is easy to play, has incredible rate quality price.
I regret not having chosen the stereo preamp but it will be for another guitar!"
"I had never heard of Faith and was looking for a big American brand, Martin, Guild or Gretsch etc. Westmount owner Paul Coombes suggested I look at Faith - FANTASTIC. Wonderful clear bright sound, beautiful finish."
"First impressions - lovely sound"
"Beautiful guitar with beautiful warm tone and fantastic playability. I couldn't be more pleased"

"The guitar is quite simply stunning! Its looks and sounds amazing and is an absolute joy to play."
"A lovely warm but bright sounding guitar which feels lovely and smells nice!"
"Great sound, quality I would of expected in a guitar twice the price."
"The second my fingers touched the fretboard I knew this was "the one" I'd been searching for. I had tried loads of Martins, Taylors, Gibsons and a whole host of other guitar makes and this Faith blows them all into a cocked hat. Just wonderful."
"Really excellent sound, especially for the price. Action is good and both plugged in sound and unplugged sound clear and refined."
"Not bad ... not bad at all!"
"Beautiful looking ... beautiful sounding. Full, rich, warm sound with balance across the strings"
"Great build,amazing resonance and string separation.
The Pan feature has been a revelation in both the studio and live. I use the channels separately live with some reverb on the top strings and plain EQ on the bottom.. brilliant.."
"Well made. Sounds pleasing. Lacks a tuner, plugged in tone could be improved, would prefer a shallower neck profile "
"Love it, initial set up could be slightly better, truss rod needed tightening slightly for decent action. Lovely tone acoustically and amplified ."
"I have only had a brief time with the guitar but the case, guitar and overall quality is up there with guitars/basses costing £1000+.
Very well finished, light, pretty, easy to play."
"Good Lows, Mids & Highs - Amazing
A neck to die for and good looks."
"I love my guitar. Its an amazing guitar for a reasonable price. Should have a higher price tag."
"Stunningly beautiful guitar with excellent tone and playability. Fantastic value for the money. This guitar has really exceeded my expectations.
"Absolutely love it! Great to strum, better to finger pick and I can't put it down. Just need to keep improving to do it justice."
"I have been looking for a Taylor or Martin until I tried the Faith. I played about a dozen all felt and sounded great but difference and as good as Taylor.One of the best acoustic guitar I have ever played.Great guitar at a great price Thanks"
"Fantastic guitar. Went shopping for a Martin or a Taylor with solid back and sides and walked out with a gorgeous Faith instead. My story is probably the same as most other Faith owners, their quality of workmanship and sound is hard to beat!!"
"Brilliant.....however electronics a little problematic over the years."
"Excellent more than pleased "
"1The shadow pickup is a little "bright". Felt that it looses the tone acoustically.
"Great to play much easier than my previous Fender"
"so far so good, excellent"
"Initially, I was going and I had the money to purchase a really expensive Martin or Tayor!, I had played a Martin that costs 2200euros but when I played The Faith Venus it was pretty much the same even better! and its 1500 cheaper Get this guitar!"
"Loved the finish, and over look of the guitar and was very impressed with the playability right off the shelf in the shop.
Great service from Hendersons too."
I'm a guitar beginner who look for buy my first guitar. I'm falling in love with the High Gloss Venus shape, and design. This guitar sound as good as she look, so great !
Thank Faith, thank M. Eggle !!"
"fantastic guitar for not a lot of money"
"Excellent love the tone the general feel easy to tune and keeps in tune, I don`t play that well yet but I am improving I enjoy practicing the sound i can get inspires me to play better, I was advised to invest in a Faith I am glad I did ."
"Great sound and beautifully finished.Find the 3rd string a bit squeaky, probably because the sound board is so responsive, but not a problem."
"Best Acoustic guitar I owned and play, a master piece, very happy!"
"With the exception of couple very small imperfections between top and binding (rough edges); I think the overall finish is great and it has a lovely tone. Its the most I've spent on a guitar so far and I am very pleased with it. "
"Classy workmanship. Small details like the wooden pins and tuner heads add a classy feel. Sound: yes great. I've heard louder 12-strings but very well balanced. Only critic: the tuner is hard to decipher, especially under stage condition/dim lightnin"
"It's excellent and my neighbour who is a professional musician is planning to get one."
"Beautiful guitar, great features and great value. Still early days on playing it in, but grin like a Cheshire Cat whenever I open the case."
"Great Instrument, very hard to find around here!"
"let me come back to this later, it's hard to put it into words"
"Great tone, nice feel albeit the action is a bit high for me but that's easily sorted. Lovely finish. So far I'm really pleased with my purchase."
"Bought as a back up gig guitar and happy with the tone, balance and quality."
"Beautiful, gorgeous, lovely......"
"Great so far but action a wee bit high "
"It's standing up really well to long hours of play. The tone’s developing nicely, getting more character in the attack and bass. And it's a visual treat, gorgeous colours and detail in the rosewood, flame in the binding, and silking in the spruce."
"Well built. Well set up and great value for money. Sound is equal to that of a guitar costing a lot more money. Congrats."
"Having been a guitarist for 20+ years playing just about every make and style around. I must say the Faith is the finest acoustic I have ever played. It is beautifully crafted, full toned and say to play. Magnificent , I love it!"
"I have yet to plug it in, which will be the real test for me as I will use the guitar for solo gigs. But I am impressed with the tone and the playability. It's bright; lively; well balanced; absurdly easy to play. Complements my Jupiter perfectly..."
"Amazing build quality and sound, and competitively priced. A quality electro-acoustic with a bright, full and even sound. Compares easily with other guitars costing twice the price."
"I only got it today, but I fell in love with it in the shop. The looks, sound and feel of the neck really did blow me away!"
"Absolutely love it, sounds fantastic, looks fantastic, so easy to play."
"Love it! If i had to be really picky I'd say the strap hooks are a little cheap and were slightly tarnished out of the box, but other than that its perfection. "
"Great guitar but very disapointed with machine head buttons which have become worn and now need replacing."
"Superb Instrument, easy to play with great natural sound!"
"Have been looking for months for the right guitar. I have just played the Venus hi gloss absolutely superb set up, finish excellent a real stunner Have now got it home and wow the sound is brill can't wait to gig with my accordion playing wife "
"The wood and sound are very good, but the bridge is too low on the treble side and too high on the bass side. But overall is to high, the bridge is so high that the angle of the strings crossing the bridge is very acute, the most ever seen"
"Also replaces my FT165 Epiphone of 40 years. I love this guitar and playing it through my Laney combo is sensational too. Cant recommend it highly enough"
"Lovely sound - good playability. Yet to use the "Hex". Not sure about the stereo yet"
"very nice finishing, yet to play with it through an amp, but so far very impressed."
"Awesome! Tried 5 or 6 other guitars in the same price range and the Venus was at least twice as good as any of them!"
"I was looking for an electro-acoustic for convenient home recording. I'm amazed at the quality and sound of this guitar at this price point. Excellent!"
"Amazing guitar, value for money exceeds those of the 'bigger' names by far. It's a keeper!"
"Amazing! Bright, articulate sound with stunning looks and a fantastic neck. Hex pre amp completes an all round unbeatable package."
"Fantastic guitar. People are always asking 'what is that guitar?, it sounds really sweet'"
"Excellent. The Natural Venus is my first all solid acoustic and can't believe the quality of this instrument. I spent ages auditioning this, the high gloss Venus, the Neptune trembesi and the natural Saturn and unfortunately I wanted all of them!"
"I am over the moon with my Venus it plays,sounds and looks amazing.I am extremely impressed with the build quality and the tonewood selection,there seems to be a very high quality control and attention to detail and at a fantastic price!"
"The guitar just gets better ~ Mr Eggle has designed a pure gem in the Trembesi 12 String. The tone is clear, trebles clear and full of sustain, bass resonant, mid range tone warm. Good looking, joy to play, get it set up right you won't put it down."
"Very nice indeed, it fits perfectly and sounds great."
"Only just acquired - have little experience of 12 string guitars so no basis for comparative assessment - tone and playability seem v.good but have yet to give it a complete "workout"."
"Its defo the best guitar i have ever owned and even played and i have owned and played many many guitars.it feels and sounds amazing :)"
"Fantastic value for money considering the build quality of the Guitar and more importantly the wonderfull full, rich sound it produces"
"Superb build quality and sound."
"so far so good, good feel, great tone, playbility perfect"
"Early days yet, as I've only just got it home. Sat and played it for hours in the shop, trying to choose between this and the eclipse, but the satin neck finally won me over. Sounds beautiful and looks the same. I'll probably lower the action a bit."
"Very well made and excellent tone. Onboard electrics first class, especially the stereo mode. Recently played a Taylor 716ce costing £2500 and I must say this Faith Venus gives me just as much pleasure."
"I'd never heard of Faith guitars until the day I walked into the Musicroom store looking for a new guitar. I was immediately blown away by its quality and playability.
Amazing value for money.
Very happy :)"
"Great sound, great feel. great value"
"Great guitar, i love the build and the sound. :D"
"I'm a singer songwriter here in the UK.
I just randomly called in to the store for my birthday present.
I fell in love with the Venus FVHG.
Absolutely beautiful !!!
We connected like estranged best friends.
Patrick, you are invited to the wedding!!!"
"I am pleased with my Faith guitar. It has a full warm sound from new which I believe will improve even more with age and use. ."
"Hands down the best tone and playability of the guitars I tried at the same price range. Four months on and I have absolutely no doubts that I chose wisely. Tone is maturing with age even at this early stage. A beautiful guitar."
"It's the best guitar I have ever owned. I just can't put it down. "
"Great sound, beautiful looks, a dream to play. Absolutely love it!"
"very pleased with the way it plays, tone very good, with a good action, sounds great."
"A fantastic guitar, british design, beautifully put together. Build quality/materials are a match for any other high end brand i looked at and much more affordable. I am absolutely delighted with my Venus, it just sounds and feels brilliant !!"
"Even though it is an old guitar it is in excellent condition and sounds great to me, even if I am just a beginner"
"In one sentence I'd say this was the quality of a £1500 guitar for half the cost!
"The best Electro Acoustic I have owned. Beautiful tone, on its own and through the amp and easy to play. Better than the Taylor's and Martin's in the same price bracket (in my opinion!). Great value for money. "
"when I first tried this guitar what really got me was how comfortable it was to play, no fret buzz and a nice clarity and good range of tone over the string range .secondly it fits great against the body and this also gives great feedback resonance."
"I now live in Adelaide and love the great comments I get about my FV Venus. Good looking, great tone plugged and unplugged. Lovely guitar. The only bad point is the jack socket keeps coming loose. But great fun and playability overall. "
"A very nice guitar with bright sound and good design."
"Beautifully built, brilliantly set up, sparkly and resonant. An absolute joy to play. The top feels tight in a good way, like it'll open up a lot. I found the electrics a little plucky at first, but rolling off a little top really helped. Very happy!"
"Very good looking guitar and a very rich and natural sound. I´m 26 and this guitar could be a guitar for a life time."
"Very impressed so far, compared with other faith models and high end other manufacturers in store, and thought this HiGloss Venus absolutely stood out and was good value for it's construction."
"Played several guitars in the store. For me, this was head and shoulders above the others. Cost more than I intended to pay. No regrets."
"So far, I love it. Lovely rich tone for a small bodied guitar. I haven't played in years so this is just the spur I need."
"I went in the store to buy a Takamine, but picked up the Faith on a whim, and couldn't put it down. I even tried a low end Taylor at over twice the price and the Faith still won out. Super neck. The finish detail superb. The sound....stunning. 10/10"
"Absolutely amazing sound and playability at this price point"
"Amazing playing guitar. Comfortable and sounds magnificent. Wouldn't trade it for the world"
"Very nice appearance, good to hold, good tone and volume, and is lighter than my previous guitar, which is a good factor. It is a left handed model, and it has a good action. The contrast of the mahogany and the spruce wood is clear and pleasing."
"Nice built, easy to play. Need sometime to evaluate HEX pickup as it looks strings separation is not good enough. It is too early to rate, that's the reason of '7'. Could be higher. "
"Delighted, feels right and sounds great."
"Looks superb. Feels quality all round. Plays even better than looks and feels. Have played more expensive guitars but this beats all of them.
Very happy customer."
"Beautifully finished guitar, the sound and tone is superb. Its playing action is first class, the "Hex" electronics has to neard to be believed, stereo from a acoustic guitar amazing. To finish Richards Guitars handling of the purchase was 1st class."
"Beautiful guitar. Sounds good acoustically and electro. The neck seems very comfortable with plenty of room for my stubby fingers and the string spacing is great for finger style playing (I play finger style exclusively). "
"Good guitar ! affordable fair, superior workmanship, First-class sound.
Good!!!!!! : )"
"Incredible guitar for the money! Everything vibrates, almost like playing a mobile acoustic piano. some notes almost go into "overdrive", i guess it will settle down soon:-)"
"I am absolutely loving my new Faith Venus. Bought it on ebay, 1.5 years old, hardly used. After a good clean and some new strings it is looking and sounding amazing. What a joy to play - superb high quality guitar! Shame about the faith hard case..."
"this is a class instrument well suited for either home or stage use The lightweight but robust construction makes this guitar comfortable to play Its rich tone and low action make it the best guitar i have owned in 40 years of playing !!"
"I am very happy with this guitar. It plays really well and the pick up is excellent and very responsive with lovely bass tones. It looks beautiful and is so light. Quality workmanship."
"The Guitar is gorgeous. Well made with high quality woods and its action was set up correctly with no fret buzz.. I would definitely recommend it to a friend without hesitation over more expensive brands like Taylor or Martin."
"This is the 2nd attempt to buy a Hi Gloss Venus. The first had to be returned for a refund to Andertons of Guilford as the frets were rough to the touch. (registration for the first guitar can be deleted)
The one I am registering now appears perfect"
"Excellent build quality and beautiful sound. Looks great with many high end features."
"Sounds and looks superb. Sounds good unplugged and plugged. Appreciate solid rosewood sides and back."
"Lovely feel, and lots of promise as it loosens up - looking forward to the next few months. Had a problem with the pickup battery cover though - not a well designed part and needed replaced. Battery compartment also has harmonic vibration issues."
"It's REALLY AMAZING!!!:) It does have some buzzing at G string, but it shows up only with a stronger plucking, so it doesn't affect my overall experiance:)"
"Well made guitar which sounds fantastic both unplugged or using the pickup. Very comfortable neck with a nice action straight out of the box. Anyone would be hard-pushed to find something better at this price point."
"So far really good only picked it up today"
"Looks amazing and sounds great, no issues so far."
"Absolutely fantastic, can't believe the quality for the money! :D"
"Beautiful tone, exceded my expectations."
"Astonishing looks & build quality, with a rich and full sound which, being all-solid wood, can only improve with age. Great for strumming and fingerpicking. It feels so natural in the hands and plays extremely well. Easily matches Taylor equivalents."
"It is a beautiful guitar"
"Love at first sight, build quality and finish fantastic, very comfortable to play and sounds great."
"I absolutely love my left-handed Faith Venus HiGloss guitar. It looks and sounds fantastic. I only wish that I could play it as well as Faith built it, but it makes me want to keep trying!"
"So far so good excellent acoustics "
"So far so good. Silky smooth neck is a pleasure to play. Bright tones in all ranges. Excellent value for money. Rated as a 9 because nothing is perfect. The main issue is I can't get a guitar strap that fits over and stays on the jack stud."
"Beautiful, it gets better each day."
"Beautiful. Very good value for money. High quality finish."
"Fantastic guitar, set up to perfection. Amazing sound and the woods are really nice. This guitar outplays almost every guitar in it's price range."
"This solid body guitar is a true piece of craftsman ship. Wonderful tone with warm yet bright projection. The pre-amp also provides a proffessional D.I quality, but i have recently came to the conclusion that the pickup/mics are unstable."
"Great guitar ! Great sound, especially the basses which are very deep ! Love it !
Only default, the microphone for the amplifier which started to get "unglued" a bit fast.
"For a 12 string, it is very easy to play. The Trembesi solid wood finish is very attractive and make the guitar feel quite light and comfortable to play.
Very pleased with the purchase. "
" I liked it in the store, I havent had time to change that opinion, but it was based on crisp clear sound and feel in my hands"
"Although I have only had my Venus a few days, I am blown away by this guitar's wonderful tone, great looks and brilliant set up making it an absolute joy to play. I honestly don't think this can be beaten for the price."
"Great value for money. Very pleased"
"I'm happy . It's just that the when I plug it in, the volume is VERY low. I played around with the EQ on the guitar and I tried different batteries but nothing worked. I have to turn my amp 4x louder than with other guitars. Causing a lot of hum/buzz"
"It replaces a Japanese Epiphone 12 String that I've had for almost 40 years. It was the best in the store (and happened to be more expensive by a fair margin). but I love it."
"Love it. I spent a long time in the shop playing loads of different models and brands but kept returning to this one."
"Lovely tone, very comfortable to play"
"Just had a little go,nice tone and playability though might have to lower the action slightly for top end comfort and ease on the bar finger. yet to plug in."
"Great guitar. Small body but rich sound. Best left handed guitar in store. It sings!"
"Sounds like real wood, not the loudest guitar on the planet, but very very sweet and the Shadow electronics are just about perfect."
"It is a beautiful guitar."
"Beautifully made, a real pleasure to play, and a lovely sustained tone. "
"superbly built.love it."
"Great Guitar, Good sounding for the body size."
"I am very happy with my guitar and would be glad to recommend Faith Guitars to anyone considering purchasing a new guitar."
"Fantastic sound and feel - 250 chars ain't enough"
"beautifully made with superb materials - will take a while for the sound to mature - as straight out of the box it sounds a bit thin. I will change the strings to Elixir 11's as I am more used to them."
"nice clean lines and good sounds"
"I don't normally fill in comment boxes. However in this case I am so impressed by the quality of the product and the level of service from Richards Guitars I shall make an exception. The tone is superb while the Hex pre amp is a whole new world. Thx!"
"Utterly brilliant! Sounds, looks, feels and even smells(!) amazing. Outperforms other guitars I tried that were much more expensive. You've made a me a customer for life with this one."
"A fine guitar that is beautifully finished with great attention to detail. Having tried many acoustics and electro acoustics before I made my choice, I can also state that all things considered, this Faith guitar is very good value for money. "
"Beautiful finish, great sound and plays nicer than other guitars I tried that cost twice as much."
"Fantastic set up on the guitar makes it an absolute pleasure to play. A liite muted in sound at first but new strings fixed that. I have owned guitars worth three times the price and they don't come near in terms of playbility."
"Light, crisp and elegant"
"I only got it today but it sounds great"
"Phenomenal guitar, great value for money, massive tones both unplugged and amped! want another one already"
"very pleased with everything. great value for money"
"I originally tried a Faith guitar in a Burnley dealership & couldn't get the "sound" out of my head. I compared them to more expensive guitars I could have purchased, but chose a Faith because of the clarity of sound & quality of finish."
"Superbly made, I love the contrast between the lacquered top and the satin sides and back. It's great to play and the size is extremely comfortable with no loss of sound."
"First impressions very good - great tone, straight out of the box, and impressive attention to detail in the finish, though the action slightly higher than I'd have preferred. Overall, I think it should be excellent once played in a bit. "
"So far very impressed. Have not played amplified yet. Good for finger style with excellent balance especially towards the top where playing with finger nails is important. For the money great value"
"Wonderful, excellent sound and easy to play."
"Looks beautiful, sounds beautiful. Hopefully built to last"
"It's gorgeous. Just the right size and a beautiful sound."
"Visually stunning, great playability, lovely sound. I absolutely love my new Faith Venus HiGloss."
"It is wonderful and is ageing beautifully. The colour of the top is turning a lovely shade of honey and the sound is evolving and becoming more complex."
"The best guitar I have ever owned. Plays brilliantly!!"
"Looks good, sounds good"
"Beautiful look and feel. Great sound from the outset which will improve over time."
"After trying a few guitars at a comparable price and I also tried the Trembesi , I found the tone of the Venus high gloss along with the way it played suited me best. The finish and fittings are first class, a beautiful guitar."
"nice compact size for live work, lovely low action, tonation very good. A bright sound compared to my old faith eclipse which is warmer but the sound complements the celtic style music i write. "
"tonally very nice . pickup is outstanding. The action could be slightly lower but thats personal taste.
"Absolutely brilliant. With the low action it practically plays itself."
"Brilliant - as good as my Martins and Taylors"
"Absolutely brilliant! It sounds great and was set up perfectly to play right from the store."
"I spent a few hours in store playing about 40 guitars - I left with the Venus Natural as it was by far the best guitar I played in the price range. A beautiful guitar, that will stay with me for the rest of my life."
"Sounds really mellow, but I don't get to play much."
"Looks stunning, plays beautifully and has a lovely sweet/bright tone. Although used, it stood out amongst new guitars guitars at all price points, including the giants. Complements my hand made classical very well."
"First impressions are good - definitely looks the part, the finish is immaculate, good tone, although a little fret buzz on the A & D strings as you move up the neck beyond the 4 or 5 fret. Haven't tried it through an amp yet, so can't comment yet."
"Guys I play with both play Martins and constantly are on my case about getting one myself. Not being one to judge a guitar by brand popularity I've been looking for a guitar that connects with me.The Venus made that connection. Player for 45 years."
"The build quality & sound are fantastic. This is by far the best guitar I have ever owned."
"Very nice Guitar to look at and just a great little Guitar to play, (Just like the Godes of Love)"
"Looks good and has a lovely tone. "
"I was pleased to see Faith Guitars in Holland. Showing all my new dutch musical friends. Love my Venus...She's a beauty. "
"I wanted a Faith because the build quality is above what one might expect in this price range.
But most of all the clarity and tone are amazing.
I tried many more expensive guitars (Martin / Gibson & more) but went for a Faith for the sound."
"Very impressed beautiful tone and playability"
"Beautifully crafted, amazing sound, easy to play. A perfect guitar over all."
"Its a really great an good looking guitar! but watch out with the feedback :)"
"This guitar has just replaced my Taylor 110CE and for all the right reasons, it's just perfect in every way that a guitar needs to be, it plays beautifully and each note is defined when playing chords rythum or lead, I love my new guitar "
"Beautiful action. Amazing good looks. Feels wonderful in my hands"
"I absolutely love these guitars. Tonally and value-for-money wise, It's the best guitar I tried under £1000, and I tried a lot. I couldn't be happier with my Faith Venus."
"The Rosewood finish is stunning and the sound, both acoustic and through my Crate Amp is really pleasing and surpisingly full bodied with sweet treble. It's a dream to play both finger style and when strummed with a light gauge plectrum."
"excellent sound and action. my tutor says its as good as his handmade model. Its a venus custom model so has lovely gold and ebony tuners and fittings. It rings out beautifully and even has an XLR output. Awesome"
"Truly amazing sound and action. My tutor says its as good as his hand made model.
I love the way it rings, the sustain and that it has an XLR output as well as the standard socket. It's a mk1 custom model with gold and ebony fittings. Very beautiful"
"Excellent tone for a smaller body guitar, and so comfortable also. Very nice."
"One of the most beautiful guitars I´ve ever had.
Excellent craftsmanship, distinctive sound plugged and unplugged. Great value for the money.
I love this guitar :-)"

"just what i wanted. Great quality and value for money, she plays beautifully!"
"I can't find any reason to mark this guitar down, it's by far the best I've ever owned. Great for picking and strumming, good pickup and nice full-bodied tone."
"This guitar is a firm favourite of mine, & I have quite a few! It's a great quality all-rounder and is fantastic for the price. "
"The action is brilliant and I was delighted with it from the start. As a result have since bought a Faith Saturn Natural Series 12 string. "
"Best guitar i've ever owned. Quality of build, looks and sound. I was looking for a Taylor or a Martin at the time but when i saw and tried the Faith I realised at the price range i was looking at, comparitively, the Faith was a much better deal."
"One of the best acoustic guitars I have ever played. Such a positive and comfortable feel to the guitar with the tone to match. A very good looking guitar with the satin finish. Out performs Martin and Taylors alike."

Pick up sound not as good, but awesome guitar anyway"
