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. In fact, the Naked Venus was voted 'The UK's Best Acoustic Guitar' at the MIA Music Awards in 2013. 

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

The Spruce top and Mahogany body of each of the Faith Naked instruments is 100% solid tonewood – in keeping with all other Faith series. However, the cosmetics and non-essential dressing has been stripped away, leaving the guitars in their natural, Naked state. Satin finished all over, the tonewood is almost entirely unrestricted in its resonant movement, so the tone delivered is far beyond what is normally expected at this price level

The Naked Venus is equipped with a Fishman Presys1 preamp and sonicore undersaddle pickup. The preamp features a contour EQ, Volume control, Phase button and integrated tuner. 

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

"Well balanced tone with a great low end.
Lightweight construction. The Mahogany sides have what looks like a twin banded (light and dark wood) look though. Makes the guitar look like it has a 40mm top.

"The third one is really good quality and exactly what I expected. Sound is is fantastic - solid wood make a difference -and the concert shape body is really nice in handling. However first one had split close to cute way and the second one had a scratch on the site of head. Definitely quality assurance process should be improved - especially visual inspection. On top of it I'm very pleased with my third one and I would recommend it..."
