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.

Faith Eclipse series were conceived as'stage guitars': instruments that offered workhorse functionality and optimum performance capability. Using the same structure and tonewood combination as the Natural Series - Spruce and Mahogany - the Eclipse models are finished with a Black stain and a clear PU lacquer all over. The lacquer serves to control the tonewood resonance a little, resulting in a more predictable and focussed tone when performing on stage.

Further to their aesthetic appeal, Eclipse models feature solid Flamed Maple binding as well as using Macassan Ebony for the fingerboard, bridge, headplate and heelcap.

"Feels like good quality and sounds great. However, I an not too sure about the Kyser Humidifier. The plastic is hard and unforgiving in so much that I am sure regular puting into position and taking out is likley to scratch the excellent finish. Unless I am doing it all wrong but I don't think so."

"I love it. It has wonderful sustain that enhances a upper frequency chime, whilst also delivering a deep, rich bass excellent for strumming,."

"Actually pretty impressive. It holds several open tunings really well, and the ballance is wide enough for a clean "chorus" sound. Feels really high end to play. I've allready recommended the guitar twice since I got it a few months back."

"My 2nd piece of the Faith Guitars. The projected sound of the 12 string is brilliant, but it is not as easy as I thought to play a 12 string. A lot of practice is needed, you need a lot more finger strength even playing with a whole step down.

The outcome is worth it, let us keep on playing!"

"Nice guitar but unfortunately mine arrived without a retaining clip for the battery, so it has to go back to the store for one to be fitted. Although I bought the guitar online, the store is only 9 miles away so I can take it in rather than repack it, but still an inconvenience."

"Superb build quality and looks with a wonderful rich sound. The body shape, neck and action make are perfect and make it very easy to play. The Shadow preamp has a lovely tone with some useful features, ie tuner, panoramic stereo and individual string volume control. The included hardcase is exceptional quality and is a great addition to a fantastic instrument.
