Faith Naked Venus Cutaway Electro Acoustic Guitar Black Spruce/Mahogany Satin
Despite being a relatively small brand, Faith produce some amazing quality acoustic guitars that deliver well above what there price-points suggest. With excellent craftsmanship and features, these guitars are meant to be played, not just live but also in the studio.
Their Naked series is what happens when everything is stripped away and you are just left with the essentials. The Naked range is about bringing Faith’s amazing guitars to a wider market, providing a guitar that is even more affordable and within the reach of less-experienced players. With a simpler, less-flash design, the focus is on the sound of the instrument.
Sound and Feel:
The Venus series is a staple of their line-up, with its medium-sized dreadnaught body offering a big and natural acoustic tone. A single-cutaway design means that you can easily access the upper frets, if playing some high-register lead parts is something your music requires! The Mahogany back and sides produce a warm sound with plenty of bottom-end, supporting a vocal perfectly.
The satin-finished neck feels smooth and fast, not hindering you in any way. This is particularly good if you sweat a lot on stage, as the finish will not feel sticky. An Indian Rosewood fretboard gives a classy look to the instrument, but also blends well with the body tonewoods to deliver a balanced tone with a solid mid-range that will let you cut through.
Fishman Isys T Preamp System:
The Isys T preamp systems feature Volume, Tone shaping and Phase controls with low profile knobs and battery indicator. The Fishman Sonicore combined pickup/battery box comes as standard.
