The Faith Venus is the now iconic shape that brought Faith Guitars to the consciousness of so many players over the years. This HiGloss model is designed to offer both visual and aural beauty. Using high grade Englemann Spruce for the top and highly-figured Rosewood for the back and sides, HiGloss models feature solid Flamed Maple binding and Macassan Ebony for the fingerboard, bridge, headplate and heelcap.
Tonally, this combination of wood is generally bright and 'zingy', delivering great clarity. Visualising this as a frequency curve, it would be shaped like a smile: high on the bass, dipping down through the middle and rising once again at the top end, lending itself to fingerstyle and solo pieces in particular.
This model also features a stereo preamp in the form of a Shadow L4020 HEX coupled with a Shadow Nanoflex HEX pickup providing equally clear, powerful tone when plugged in to amplification.
