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.

Elle Eclipse deja mes deux autres guitares, Martin 000-X1 et Taylor 110CE qui sont dans la meme gamme de prix.
Un son raffine, equilibre, riche en harmoniques delicats (cordes changees pour du Phosphore Bronze Elixir nano). Une dynamique qui enrichie enormement le jeu. Aussi a l'aise en streaming qu' en picking.
L'electronique est vraiment surprenante, Je ne m'attendais pas a ce niveau de qualite sonore une fois branche (je ne suis pas trop fan du piezo en general).
Le confort general est tres bon, on peut jouer des heures...
La finition est franchement irreprochable avec un accastillage digne d'une gratte haut de gamme 2 fois plus cher.
Bref, que du bonheur et dire qu'elle va s'ameliorer avec le temps...

Une petite remarque juste, pas de Pickguard (vu la beaute de la Table en trembesi, on peut comprendre). Apres quelques heures de strumming, les premieres rayures sont apparues.
J'ai donc decide de poser un pickguard transparent tres fin.
Elle est chez le luthier pour cela et pour un reglage complet (changement de tirant et pose sillet os).
Il a franchement hallucine au regard du prix !

Un ami possede la douze cordes Venus Natural, il est comble. Rapport qualite prix assez surprenant.

"I love it! The build quality is superb and it has a warm acoustic sound. The factory set up was a bit high for me being an electric player but I lowered the action with just the truss rod adjustment. Intonation spot on perfect. There is nothing about this guitar I don't like."

"I ordered my guitar online based on reviews and videos due to faith guitars not having distributor in my country. When it came, I was amazed by it's looks and sound. It cost more than rest of my musical equipment together, but I don't regret because it's worth it."

"It's a lovely guitar, but the wood combination accentuates high and low frequencies at the expense of the mids, which doesn't really suit standard tuning, at least not on an acoustic.

Tune down half a step to Eb however, and this guitar sings!!"

"Beautiful finish to the guitar. The case looks really high quality too. I love the humidifier it comes with. The sound is perfect for me, very similar to a mahogany guitar I have but sound is more balanced across all the strings. "
