PreorderThe 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 inch 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 both large enough to deliver a big acoustic performance, and small enough for the player to jump around on stage with no problem.
Faith All-Mahogany models deliver a clear, linear tone which is very sweet and woody with plenty of midrange.
Using Mahogany for both the top and body of a guitar makes for a very “friendly” instrument that responds well to hard picking, strumming and finger-style techniques alike. Further to this, the sound produced is unburdened by overly audible overtones and harmonics, so they perform brilliantly when recording.
