Venus body construction
Faith took their inspiration for the Venus from auditorium sized guitars and created their own iconic Venus shape that provides the player with easy, comfortable playability and versatile sonic performance. This shape is also an idyllic all-purpose guitar that offers a balanced and articulate response with great volume and projection, equally suited to both fingerpicking and strumming. To add to the comfortable playability, the Faith Venus also has a venetian cutaway profile which offers easy access to upper frets, allowing the player to perform more technical skills without being restricted higher up the fingerboard.
Sculpted for perfection
The Faith Naked Venus features a solid spruce top that is well-known for its stunning response to a lighter touch, perfect for the fingerpicking enthusiast. This top produces a sweet, dark, and complex tone, with an excellent bass response and rich harmonics It has been attached to solid Indonesian mahogany back and sides that further enhances the tone by adding a warmth and resonance, alongside plenty of emphasis to the bass and trebles, providing the player with a rich, full-bodied sound that is ideal for folk, country, and much more.
The Neptune's neck has been crafted from mahogany, which offers a quick and dynamic response with plenty of warmth and resonance. Its nature allows it to respond superbly to numerous playing styles and techniques with ease, perfect for getting creative and unleashing true potential. The neck has been topped with an Indonesian ebony fingerboard, which adds ringing sustain, plenty of bite and a bright sizzle to the guitar's overall tone.
Ready for stage and studio
This model comes equipped with Fishman electronics, making it an idyllic guitar for the performing musician. The addition of a Fishman Sonicore pickup ensures the Venus's stunning nuances are faithfully picked-up with optional tone shaping. The IsysT preamp features controls for volume, contour, and phase, as well as an on-board tuner. With all this, the player is able to perform live within multiple venues and studio environments, as well as being able to tune the guitar on-the-go, whether plugged-in or acoustically.
The aptly named Naked Venus Electro Acoustic Guitar has been stripped down of unnecessary cosmetics and finishes, leaving the Faith Naked Venus in its natural, 'Naked' state. With a 2-stage satin finish all over, the guitar offers a smooth, stylish, and natural look as well as an enhanced tone. In addition, its entire satin finish leaves the tonewoods completely unrestricted, providing the player with superb resonance and a sound that is up and beyond what is expected at this price range. Lastly, equipped with chrome hardware, abalone rosette, classic Faith headstock and F logo inlaid in mother of pearl, the Faith Naked Venus offers a natural yet stylish appearance that is certain to look great wherever you play.
