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 HiGloss series are designed to offer both visual and aural beauty. Using high grade Englemann Spruce for the top and highly-figured Rosewood for the back and sides, HiGloss models feature solid Flamed Maple binding and Macassan 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, lending itself to fingerstyle and solo pieces in particular.

"I have been following Faith online for a couple years and was ecstatic when my local guitar store began your line. Scott and Brian at Groton Guitars were able to answer all my questions and offer invaluable advice on how to maintain an all solid wood guitar. The guitar is perfect. Well built, beautiful looking, sounds superb, and I can't wait to spend more time with it. I admire the company's ethical standards and commitment to the environment Faith adheres to. I do hope to see more lefty selections here in the U.S. soon. "
