Model Overview

VOTED THE UK'S BEST ACOUSTIC GUITAR 2013

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

The Spruce top and Mahogany body of each of the Faith Naked instruments is 100% solid tonewood – in keeping with all other Faith series. However, the cosmetics and non-essential dressing has been stripped away, leaving the guitars in their natural, Naked state. Satin finished all over, the tonewood is almost entirely unrestricted in its resonant movement, so the tone delivered is far beyond what is normally expected at this price level.

This model is fitted with Shadow Performer Tuner Preamp / Shadow Nanoflex Pickup electronics. 

From mid-2017, Faith Guitars will begin shipping with Fishman electronics. Find out more HERE.

I play finger style guitar, and find nice and easy to play.
I play with the guitar tuned down a half step, and very pleased with the tone."

"My guitar is 2nd hand and I am amazed at the rich colour of the spruce soundboard after just a few years. It is so warm yet responsive - a delight to play in every respect. I am rightly modest about my playing but I just know that my Faith Naked is going to raise me to new heights."

"I love this guitar. It looks and feels fantastic. It sounds amazing. It's very comfortable to play and has a great dynamic range. You can hear each string clearly in a chord. It is very light yet feels very solid and the lack of ornmentation makes the beauty of the wood stand out."
Colin Horne
United Kingdom
on 12/08/2017
"I absolutely love my Faith 12 string. The solid wood really sings, and the quality, even on the naked series, is blatantly evident, which makes the instrument pleasing to look at, and play. I enjoy meeting up with fellow guitarists in my family, and having a jam, and whenever used, I receive wonderful comments about the fantastic tone, and the punch of my Faith 12 string. Absolutely phenomenal work by the people at Faith!"

"This is my second guitar purchase. It is amazing guitar, it out has classed everything on the high street in terms of quality of sound and ergomonics. I am 5ft 9" tall and the body of the guitar is a pleasure to hold, as it "hugs" in to you. The natural finish on the guitar itself creates a wonderful resonance that is bright and warm. It is not a very "loud" guitar, but if you are looking for something you can play in a flat or terraced house without complaints, I could not reccomend it enough. It can always be adjusted by heavier strings and the use of an amp.

"Well balanced tone with a great low end.
Lightweight construction. The Mahogany sides have what looks like a twin banded (light and dark wood) look though. Makes the guitar look like it has a 40mm top.

"Having owned a 6 string venus eclipse for 7 years and loving it as much today as when I bought it, I was confident that Faith would deliver the goods again when I was looking for a 12 string guitar. However I decided to give the opposition a chance to seduce me first. I tried some top range guitars but the Faith beat them hands down on sound. I wanted a guitar with a bit different sound to my eclipse and the naked just beat the other 12 strings in the Faith range. However I would have bought them all and the other 6 strings if I had the money. The naked is comfortable to play and produces that Faith sound which I like so much."

"I have been searching for this guitar for so long. It just has so much tone! Every bit of it resonates. It's obvioulsy made with care and is stunning to look at. No part of it is excess, and every element of it is necessary. I can't put it down."
Ed Appleton
United Kingdom
on 05/09/2015
"Really like the unfinished feel and the amplified tone. Quality of build is superb. Would prefer a slightly lower action but that's just personal preference and from playing electric predominantly. The value for money you get with the naked Venus is insane."

"I appreciate the simplicity and pure beauty of the Naked Faiths allowing for quality in sound and playability.<br /> Solid woods usually demand higher prices so value in this price range is a big plus.

"I love my Naked Venus - I went to the shop with the intention of buying one of the higher-end Faith guitars, and while I loved those too, there was something about the tone of the Naked series instruments that appealed to me... to me it has a more natural "woody", less trebly tone than the models with a thicker finish. Also, the plugged-in tone is wonderful too; I've had compliments from several people about my guitar tone since I started playing this model, and this is from people who don't really know much about guitars... they just knew it sounded better."
Keith Aitken
United Kingdom
on 24/01/2015
"Absolutely blown away by this guitar, it looks and sounds amazing, both acoustically and plugged into PA system. Really comfortable to play. built in tuner is very accurate (really useful for a 12 string, and once in tune, it stays in tune. Cracking guitar. "
