Model Overview

VOTED THE UK'S BEST ACOUSTIC GUITAR 2012

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.

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.

"It's a lovely guitar, but the wood combination accentuates high and low frequencies at the expense of the mids, which doesn't really suit standard tuning, at least not on an acoustic.

Tune down half a step to Eb however, and this guitar sings!!"

"My new faith venus higloss percussive is a wonderful guitar, I believe it's the most beautiful guitar I have ever seen. I'm flashed.
It's my second faith guitar and I bought it online at Sound Affects Music in Ormskirk, Lancashire, just on base of pictures of the guitar.
Some years ago I bought a faith naked venus in a small guitar shop in Germany after an hour testing. I love my naked venus guitar and I play it allmost everyday. The last two years I write my own songs, inspired by my guitar and perform it with my acoustic band.
I'm pretty sure my new venus higloss percussive will inspire me to more songs. Greetings from Germany. Markus"

"I had looked at the Faith Guitar web site whilst contemplating buying a new guitar. Looking at pictures is ok to a degree, but you have to see and try the real deal. I wasn't let down with the choice of Faith guitars in store and after comparing a few models I decided on the Venus Electro High Gloss. The finish is amazing, the tone is fantastic and the action is perfect for me. It's a quality instrument for the price.........I'm a very happy guy."

Rob 
United Kingdom
on 17/06/2018
"Loved it as soon as I tested it in a couple of shops. Its tone and build quality easily are easily as good as that of the Taylors and Martins that were within my price range. Also, unlike the equivalent Taylors and Martins, the FVHG is solid spruce fronted and solid rosewood back and sides; and that really does make a difference to the sound.
I was signposted towards Faith by a buddy who bought one two years ago, and I would seriously recommend that you road-test a Faith before you spend more on less."

"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. "

"This guitar is everything that I have ever wanted in an acoustic guitar. I picked it up and started playing. I could not believe what I heard and how it felt in my hands. The factory neck relief and action is so perfect that no extra set up work is needed. Having always wanted Gibson or Martin, Faith Guitars walked into my live and changed my mind. I started playing guitar since the age of 8 years old and am now 61. I played pro for many years as well. I love Faith Guitars and am now a total convert. Faith is the only guitar anyone will ever need."

"It sounds absolutely amazing. I can't wait to use it in my gigs. I haven't plugged it in yet but I hope the pickup is as outstanding as the guitar.
A beautiful piece of instrument. I've been dreaming of owning an all solid wood guitar without shelling out an insane amount of money. And Faith has got me that guitar!
The tone of the wood is fantastic and sounds so melodic.
I'm in love with it!"

"Even if you do not play a guitar, you would appreciate this guitar as an exquisite work of art. The workmanship and finish is a joy to behold, and then I played a couple of chords, wow! Would have to pay 4 times as much for a Taylor that sounded like that and it still would not have the design and build quality.

Thanks Guys, very happy today!"

"I had purchased a TAYLOR 214 ce DLX, with the expression 2 system, the tone was very good, but when I played in the house the finger noise ,when plugged in ,was too much. I took it back and tried ,for the first time ,your faith guitar, I was blown away ,first by the incredibly spec. the build quality ,play-ability , tone, and the price. I own some 35 stringed instruments,some more expensive than your Faith guitar, but I am now ,in a very short time a CONFIRMED MAN OF FAITH. It was my good fortune that lead me to your instruments,I can not imagine me buying anything other brand from now on. THANK YOU FAITH"

Fantastic build quality and a stunningly beautiful instrument both to play and to look at. It shouldn't be possible to get such a high quality instrument for this price, but somehow they've pulled it off. I test-played Martins and Taylors but until I hit a price bracket three times the cost of this guitar, nothing came close."
