We are pleased to announce the release of the Venus Blood Moon.
This OM style electro cutaway continues in the vein of other models from the Faith Guitars lineup by using innovative tonewoods for both sonic variety and aesthetic impact.
The top, back and sides of the Venus Blood Moon is made from Javanese High-Figure Trembesi. Tonally, it is similar in timbre to a solid mahogany instrument, but benefits from a slightly more pronounced treble response.
“We have been blown away by the beauty of these Blood Moon instruments”, comments Alex Mew, Faith Guitars’ brand manager. “Although we have used attractive Trembesi on the back of previous instruments, we discovered that there were locations from which we could find the most incredibly figured timbers. This class of figure is highly-prized by woodworkers, and so we set about testing it as a sole tonewood for guitars. Delighted with the sound, Patrick Eggle and I worked on finding the right colour palette to further enhance the natural appearance, and after a few trials, the Blood Moon Burst was finalised.”
Each Venus Blood Moon model, which retails for £849, is complemented by solid Flamed Maple binding, Ebony Fittings and a Faith Hardcase.
A small initial shipment has been released to UK stores prior to Christmas, with another batch arriving in the UK during February. These exclusive models will find their way into the USA and Asia during the spring of 2016.
