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. In fact, the Naked Venus was voted 'The UK's Best Acoustic Guitar' at the MIA Music Awards in 2013. 

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

The Spruce top and Mahogany body of each of the Faith Naked instruments is 100% solid tonewood – in keeping with all other Faith series. However, the cosmetics and non-essential dressing has been stripped away, leaving the guitars in their natural, Naked state. Satin finished all over, the tonewood is almost entirely unrestricted in its resonant movement, so the tone delivered is far beyond what is normally expected at this price level

The Naked Venus is equipped with a Fishman Presys1 preamp and sonicore undersaddle pickup. The preamp features a contour EQ, Volume control, Phase button and integrated tuner. 

All Naked guitars are now supplied with a padded Faith Gigbag.

"I'm very impressed by every aspect of this guitar - sound quality, build quality, playability and setup. All solid wood. It's better in every way than my Taylor which cost 4x times as much. I'll keep this forever."

"Pristine; a sense of something pure, what the Japanese call "Shibui". You pinch yourself when you see all that handcrafted quality at that price.. Absolutely love the modest satin finish and the whole design philosophy behind it.

"I saw that amazing look from out the street and when I first heard it's sound I knew it had to be mine.
I've only played it for a few days but it fits comfortable and sounds really good.
By now totally worth the money."

"Well built, clean, modern looks and the sound I was looking for from an all solid mahogany guitar.
First time I have purchased a guitar online (due to lockdown) and without playing it, but thanks to the staff at Reidy's, Blackburn, I was not disappointed. The guitar was extremely well packaged. Slight problem withe zip on the gig bag which is being dealt with."

"The sound is amazing and the build quality superb. The action is a touch too high for me but measures 2mm at 12th fret which is recommended (according to the Internet). I would prefer to have dot inlays on the fretboard."

"Fairly plain in appearance as the name suggests but beautifully made and finished - easily the equal of my two Taylors . It was set up perfectly for me out of the box ready to play immediately and it sounds FANTASTIC !!!!! ; tone is slightly warm and woody with great projection when strummed and well capable of going loud , finger picking is just as good with real nuance and delicacy to the sound . The neck feels great under the hand and isn't as chunky as some 12 strings I've played though I should point out that while it's ideal for me I don't have big hands so other players may not find it so comfortable ."

"An amazing instrument, great quality and great sound. I love the concept of these "naked" series and in my opinion, the resulting minimal look gives these guitars a lovely elegant touch. Less is more."
