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.

Using the combination of Red Cedar and Mahogany, Classic Burst models sound as rich and warm as they look. Using a three-tone burst finish, based on deep browns, reds and amber, this finish is intentionally understated and is a personal favourite of Patrick's.

The tonal character will have emphasis on the lower-midrange with a beautifully warm, vocal nature. The Classic Burst models are bound with Solid Macassan Ebony, and use the same high quality timber for the fingerboards, headplates, heelplates, bridges and bridge pins. Faith Classic Burst guitars are complete with a Faith Hardcase.

This Faith Guitar is fitted with the refined, low-profile Fishman INK3 preamp system with the Sonicore piezo pickup located under the saddle.

"The Venus is living up to my expectations looks fantastic and sounds bright. The tone is crystal clear body contours comfortable to hold and the satin neck a joy top play. The sunburst finish is top quality and adds a touch of individuality when compared to other models. The hardcase is very good and reassures me the guitar will be protected when stored away. The Kyser lifeguard was a surprise to find included with the Venus guitar, thank you."

"This is the second one of the same model that I have purchased since I sold my first one and regretted it. The 45mm nut is nice and spacious and the guitar is perfect for fingerstyle.
Not sure why the bridge pins won't seat as well as they should but it's early days. I have (and have had) many Faith guitars - comparing with my older ones, I have a feeling that the quality is going down a little."

"I really like it - the cedar top adds just enough warmth without adversely affecting note separation. I also particularly like the easy playability and the 45mm nut. The set up was spot on."
