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 Eclipse series were conceived as 'stage guitars': instruments that offered workhorse functionality and optimum performance capability. Using the same structure and tonewood combination as the Natural Series - Spruce and Mahogany - the Eclipse models are finished with a Black stain and a clear PU lacquer all over. The lacquer serves to control the tonewood resonance a little, resulting in a more predictable and focussed tone when performing on stage. 

Further to their aesthetic appeal, Eclipse models feature solid Flamed Maple binding as well as using Macassan Ebony for the fingerboard, bridge, headplate and heelcap.

"I was looking for a black lefthanded electroacoustic guitar for a long time and I have to say that it was very limited range of products at my price range. Ok, I have to admit that this went over my budget but when I saw it it felt I had to get this awesome piece of a guitar! It sounds perfect, looks even better live than in pics! Only thing that conserned me was that this guitar was supposed to come with Shadow L4020 stereo preamp, instead it came with Fishman Ink3 (?). I guess there is not many guitars like this in which makes this feel even more unique!"
