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 Natural series were the very first style of Faith Guitar, and are a classic combination of Spruce and Mahogany.

Using high grade Englemann Spruce for the top and satin finished Mahogany for the back and sides, Natural models feature solid Rosewood binding and Macassan Ebony for the fingerboard, bridge, headplate and heelcap. Tonally, this combination of wood is generally warm, sweet and mellow, delivering an overall balanced tone.

"What do I think? It's a bit to soon. Still laying in its case. Letting it acclimatise. Looks gorgeous though. Only just started to learn guitar so I'm bit of an amateur to comment any further. Cheers."

"Early days but first impressions very good. Dark and moody as advertised but can obtain reasonable high end too. Build quality good but spoilt by some deep scratching to the front hi gloss finish caused, I think, by pieces of sawdust in the case - they must have been there when it was shipped from the factory. As I liked the sound/action I kept the guitar and was able to carefully polish out most of the scratches. The hard case is a useful addition - though unfortunately it is slightly on the small side and the guitar strap button tears at the internal lining."

"The guitar looks and plays beautifully. I'm literally in love with it right now been playing for an hour after trying it in store and buying it online. I've never felt this love towards a guitar before but the blood moon just drew me in and I wasn't expecting it to arrive in a guitar case too so that was a bonus."

"A beautiful instrument, both in looks and sound. The guitar is very well finished both inside and out, action was great straight out of the box. It plays equally as nice as my 13 yr old FVHG. In short, a great quality guitar like I've come to expect from Faith."

"Love the sound unplugged and plugged - Fishman preamp gives a great tonal range ideal for playing live. It looks and feels great too. Only complaint is that the low E string sounds pretty dull, something that only became apparent when comparing to my previous acoustic. Hopefully it's just the strings."

"Generally very good feel, top spruce isn't the strongest especially for heavy hitters, the upper bout is a bit to large, the movement between drums on the lower bout to right hand is a real challenge, and the string distancing for a percussive guitar is too close, makes then more technical harmonics and fingerpicking more difficult, other than that it's great almost a dream guitar."

"Absolutely love it. Lovely tone, comfortable size (G A), good action, superb finish, solid wood, looks beautiful and top quality for the price. Very pleased for hard case supplied. Hats off to Patrick J Eggle for designing and producing this top quality instrument.
Tried other brands but kept coming back to this FV Natural Venus. Also, have read lots of reviews, this one was true and spot on."
