Model Overview

A truly stunning, exotic beauty with a distinctive voice.

The Venus Blue Moon is a truly individual instrument. One of the beauties of genuinely solid, natural tonewoods is that each piece of solid timber used will vary in its natural colouration and its particular grain patterns. So your Blue Moon will be as unique as you and your music.

Tonally, Mango has an interesting character. It is not as loud and punchy as rosewood nor as straightforwardly mellow as mahogany, yet it bears its own distinctive warmth. With frequency prominence starting a little below that of mahogany and dropping off a little earlier in the mid-range, the overall tone could be described as dark and moody. Much like maple guitars, the reduced level of resonant overtones makes the Mango-bodied Blue Moon a perfect stage guitar: Eminently controllable, balanced and resistant to feedback.

Mango trees grow freely right across the Indonesian archipelago, so the timbers used on Blue Moon guitars are sourced close to our workshops in Java, Indonesia, and as always, from certified timber merchants.

Finished with flamed Maple binding, Macassan Ebony fittings, Fishman Electronics and complete in a hard case, your Faith Venus Blue Moon is sure to intrigue and delight you at every turn.

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. In fact, the Naked Venus was voted 'The UK's Best Acoustic Guitar' at the MIA Music Awards in 2013. 

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. 

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.

"Simply put, awesome! Beautiful tone, noticeably different to my Neptune Hi Gloss. Fantastic colour, the only reason I've dropped one point is because the figuring of the top isn't as spectacular as some of the early versions I saw advertised, but nevertheless it's still fantastic!"

"For my 50TH I wanted something special so I went with the intention to buy a Taylor big baby or Martin x series, but I just didn't like them, the young sales guy put two different Taylor academys in my hands which were better but not much, I really didn't think they were much of an improvement on my sigma dme+. As I was getting ready to leave, the young sales worker suggested I tried faith, it was a total upgrade to the ones I'd tried, the deep resonance and tone to the smoothest tuning pegs I've used. I was sold at that point. Now, the young guitar guitar Edinburgh rep who was great with me said I'll get you a new boxed one (I had a reluctance). He opened it for me to try out the box and it felt identical to the display model I'd tried. This guitar will be i lifer for me, every time I pick the guitar up I play longer than before, and inspires me to write songs again which I've done. The Faith Venus Bluemoon is outstanding in build and tone, with great value for money. Worth double the price."

"So far. Fabulous. Some intonation uncertainty, but have just put some 13's on, so will let everything settle and see how it pans out! But, it certainly plays nice, has a great action and lovely soft but clear sound. Machine heads are superb too. Not had chance to plug it in yet either.

The rating/10 I have given is a bit premature, and reflects the above uncertainty at this point."

"What do I think? It's a bit to soon. Still laying in its case. Letting it acclimatise. Looks gorgeous though. Only just started to learn guitar so I'm bit of an amateur to comment any further. Cheers."

"Early days but first impressions very good. Dark and moody as advertised but can obtain reasonable high end too. Build quality good but spoilt by some deep scratching to the front hi gloss finish caused, I think, by pieces of sawdust in the case - they must have been there when it was shipped from the factory. As I liked the sound/action I kept the guitar and was able to carefully polish out most of the scratches. The hard case is a useful addition - though unfortunately it is slightly on the small side and the guitar strap button tears at the internal lining."

"OMG... what can I say, this guitar is a real beauty. Only received it yesterday but have pretty much played or looked at it since. I am not sure that I have ever seen such a gorgeous looking guitar. Every aspect of the guitar build appears to be of the highest quality.
As for the sound, I can concur with Faith that their description of a distinctive warm moody sound is pretty spot on, I love it.
For those questioning whether a guitar like this of smaller stature has got acoustic volume, fear not, it certainly has.
All round I am massively impressed by this Blue Moon Venus, so if you are after a beautifully made guitar with wonderful sounds, look no further..... good job Faith.... Love it."
