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 Ebony 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.

"Having only just purchased this guitar, my first impressions are of a well-made product with superb mellow tones. The electronic pick & tuner is a bonus. It makes me want to really improve my playing to do it justice!"

"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..."

"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. "

"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."

"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:-)"

"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."

"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. "

"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."
