Model Overview

Building upon the acclaimed Naked series of Faith Acoustic Guitars, these thru-black models deliver the same rich sonic performance you would expect from an all-solid wood guitar, but are enhanced by the special 'thru black' finish and black fittings and hardware.

Using a hand-rubbed stain - rather than a sprayed paint finish - results in a unique look to each guitar. Further to this, Spruce and Mahogany have differing cellular structures, so there is natural variation in the way that the stain takes to each peice of tonewood. This stunning quirk of nature is especially noticeable on the Spruce top, as in some areas, the black stain will be absorbed more than others, creating an individual patina to each and every model: Some will be more uniform black, some will have more wood pattern visible.

In keeping with original Naked series, cosmetics and non-essential dressing has been stripped away, leaving the guitars in their natural, Naked state. Satin finished all over, the tonewood is almost entirely unrestricted in its resonant movement, so the tone delivered is far beyond what is normally expected at this price level.

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 great acoustic performance, yet remains small enough for the player to jump around on stage with no problem.

This FKVBK model is equipped with Fishman’s Presys1 sidemounted preamp system, complete with an integrated tuner. The output is routed thru a jack socket / strap button in the base of the guitar.

All Naked guitars are now supplied with a padded Faith Gigbag.

Fishman Pre-Amp / Pickup

This Faith Guitar is fitted with a Fishman Isys-T preamp (named Presys-T from 2019), and sonicore pickup. The output jack is combined with the strap button with a battery box fitted to the base of the guitar. The preamp features a Tuner, a contour button - choosing a flat EQ or a scooped EQ , and a phase button.

"I have been playing as an amateur for a few years and struggling to actually play an acoustic guitar because I found it a struggle to just do barre chords. I was given the Naked Venus as a gift and as soon as I started playing it felt so comfortable to play!. Now this guitar is helping me to get better and I'm really impressed with the tone, the ways its set up and the overall quality for the price point. Thank you Faith!!"

"It arrived with the action quite high so it's a difficult to play at the present time. I haven't had a chance to do any set up work on it.
It does sound very nice, I think the guitar is well made and I really like the unique black stain. I'm looking forward to getting it adjusted so I can really enjoy it. I think the guitar is a great value."

"I already own a faith high gloss Saturn electro acoustic and love the sound from that guitar, I was look for a smaller guitar so I opted for the Venus and it's exactly what I was look for, its got a great sound that's different to my other faith but still rich and full but a bit more zingy and its much easier to handle."

"I saw that amazing look from out the street and when I first heard it's sound I knew it had to be mine.
I've only played it for a few days but it fits comfortable and sounds really good.
By now totally worth the money."

"An amazing instrument, great quality and great sound. I love the concept of these "naked" series and in my opinion, the resulting minimal look gives these guitars a lovely elegant touch. Less is more."

"Since I started playing guitar 12 months ago this is my first up market guitar after buying a cheapie off eBay to see if I liked playing. Needless to say I did enjoy and I'm very happy and pleased with this guitar. I know this guitar will take me further and become more comfortable with my guitar playing."

"I'm in love. I can't believe how perfectly this thing is set up, just absolutely perfect right up the neck

My...only minor criticism is it's set up with 12-53 strings and I'm used to using 11-52s...I'm now nervous about switching as I don't wanna mess up how perfectly it's set up! Haha. This isn't really an issue though. I'm nitpicking.

This is the single nicest guitar I've ever bought or played."
