Fishman Pre-Amp / Pickup

This Faith Guitar is fitted with the refined, low-profile Fishman INK3 preamp system with the Sonicore piezo pickup located under the saddle. The preamp features a chromatic tuner, 3 band EQ and volume control. The output jack is located at the base of the guitar as part of the ingenious, easy-access battery compartment.

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.

"? stato amore appena ci ho messo le mani sopra, non ricordo il modello di Martin che avevo suonato prima di provare questa...questo fa capire quanto sia irrilevante il marchio quando hai sotto le mani ottimi legni, un ottima fattura e un elettronica molto efficace. Ottimo prodotto e soprattutto ottimo prezzo."

"The Venus is living up to my expectations looks fantastic and sounds bright. The tone is crystal clear body contours comfortable to hold and the satin neck a joy top play. The sunburst finish is top quality and adds a touch of individuality when compared to other models. The hardcase is very good and reassures me the guitar will be protected when stored away. The Kyser lifeguard was a surprise to find included with the Venus guitar, thank you."

"It is extremely good value for money. I like the Fishman Ink 3 control panel and the sound is very good. The playability and comfort of the neck are great too. Along with 5 other guitar players I spent a Sunday with Patrick about 8 years ago learning how to set up key parts of the guitar and it was a real joy. A wonderful person. I oned a PJE Saluda at the time and was in awe of the build quality. Recently I played an expensive Faith and was very impressed and when I read the revue which Guitarist gave the Blood Moon Venus I had to try it out. Love the Blood Moon colour and am very happy with the guitar. Only one minor criticism and that is the key for the case is the wrong key so someone somewhere will also find they have the wrong key.
