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

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.

"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.

"The third one is really good quality and exactly what I expected. Sound is is fantastic - solid wood make a difference -and the concert shape body is really nice in handling. However first one had split close to cute way and the second one had a scratch on the site of head. Definitely quality assurance process should be improved - especially visual inspection. On top of it I'm very pleased with my third one and I would recommend it..."
