Model Overview

The Venus is the now iconic shape that brought Faith Guitars to the consciousness of so many players over the years. The combination of a 15" lower bout and a slimmer depth of body looks to classic OM or Auditorium body-shapes for inspiration, and makes the Venus the perfect compromise.

It is still big enough to deliver a big acoustic performance, yet remains small enough for the player to jump around on stage with no problem

Faith Trembesi instruments are a relatively recent addition to the Faith range. Indigenous to Indonesia – where the Faith workshops are based – this beautifully grained, exotic Trembesi wood sits comfortably between the tonal offerings of Mahogany and Rosewood.

Using Engelmann Spruce for the top and Solid Indonesian Trembesi for the back and sides, each guitar looks quite traditional until the exotic timber is revealed upon closer inspection. Trembesi series guitars will respond well to strumming and finger-style techniques alike, with the frequency curve starting high, dipping a little and rising once more toward the top. The resulting sound is remarkably loud and responsive with evenly balanced harmonics.

 

Fishman Pre-Amp / Pickup

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.

"I am very impressed with my guitar, and love playing it. :)
I was not happy with the hardcase that came with it however. The locking mechanism is poorly made, and does not even lock."

"The Faith Venus Trembesi was my dream guitar, and I have so enjoyed playing it ever since I bought it. It is a beautiful guitar, sounds amazing, and is so comfortable to play. It had everything I wanted in a guitar. "

"Very pleased with the quality of this instrument. I appreciate the smaller more comfortable form of the Venus and I really like the satin finish of the Trembesi wood (I find some of the other ranges far too glossy for my taste), and appreciate the character that it gives to the sound. I bought online and it arrived in perfect condition and not requiring any adjustment. It's sits nearby me and I find it inspirational. "
