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 bodylooks 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 Nexus Series are a collection of beautiful acoustic, gloss-finished guitars using all-solid mahogany bodies and tops. The all-mahogany construction creates a guitar that loves to be played hard and offers a distinctive tonal character with an emphasis on the mid-range.

In keeping with our popular Naked series, Nexus series guitars are also free of unnecessary cosmetic flourishes, instead relying on the tonewood’s natural variations, and the hand-applied Cognac stain to add visual appeal. And what an appeal there is! Although there is still a certain stripped back look, the addition of a carefully applied high gloss lacquer not only highlights the mahogany’s natural beauty, but also adds a layer of physical protection that ensures your Nexus will shine for years to come.

Precision black tuners, black nuts and saddles, and genuine ebony fingerboards, bridges and bridge pins complete the Nexus look, and accentuate their already rich and dark visual palette.

This Nexus Venus is equipped with a Fishman Presys2 preamp system which features EQ control and an integrated tuner. 

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

"I love it. It's the perfect size, the neck feels amazing and the tuners are smooth. The tone is beautiful and it's can get plenty loud. It was set up perfectly straight out of the box. Can't recommend it enough."

"Overall good some scuffs when bought. Frets not quite up to scratch with visible marks in sunlight. Fishman jack very tight when putting lead in. And strap lock black paint missing on parts of atraplock. "

"Totally love it. Would prefer a different headstock shape (to reduce compound string bend), pins are a bit loose/erratically seated, and at some point, when I'm feeling brave, I'll fit my own hand-carved bridge. Researched and tested for weeks - so glad I chose Faith."

"excellent instrument all round. Only one problem the fret ends on the left (upper side) had not been dressed properly. The 7th/9th/10th were all sharp & the 7th fret wire had a snag on it which caught your skin. I purchased a fine small file which took the snags off, but a bit annoyed that this had passed its inspection. Other than that, a lovely instrument"
