Fishman Pre-Amp / Pickup
This Faith Guitar is fitted with a Fishman Isys-T preamp (named Presys-T from 2019), and sonicore pickup. The output jack is combined with the strap button with a battery box fitted to the base of the guitar. The preamp features a Tuner, a contour button - choosing a flat EQ or a scooped EQ , and a phase button.
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 All-Mahogany models deliver a clear tone which is very sweet and woody with plenty of mid-range articulation.
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.
The FKVMG is equipped with a Fishman Presys1 preamp system which features a contour EQ control, Volume control, Phase button and an integrated tuner.
All Naked guitars are now supplied with a padded Faith Gigbag.

fantastic sound and looks really nice and classy looking.
I also own the fvbmb venus bloodmoon and i can not fault the build quality of both of my faith guitars."
However, have been having trouble with rattling pickup and pickup not working properly. Have needed to have it looked at on several occasions, which has been disappointing. "
