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 Natural series were the very first style of Faith Guitar, and are a classic combination of Spruce and Mahogany

Using high grade Englemann Spruce for the top and satin finished Mahogany for the back and sides, Natural models feature solid Rosewood binding and Macassan Ebony for the fingerboard, bridge, headplate and heelcap. Tonally, this combination of wood is generally warm, sweet and mellow, delivering an overall balanced tone.

"I think this is a beautiful guitar. I have been playing for 18 years and this guitar is one of the best i've ever played. Great tone and sustain when combined with Elixir strings. Sounds good when slapping and tapping the body too. Has a lot of natural volume for small body."
