Faith High Gloss Series - FVHG Venus Cutaway Electro
The Faith High Gloss Series FVHG Venus cutaway Electro is an all-solid concert sized electro acoustic guitar with cutaway.
Featuring a solid Engleman Spruce top coupled with solid Rosewood back and sides, the FVHG Venus offers the perfect combination of tone and playability. The solid Spruce delivers a clear, bright tone whilst the Rosewood adds depth, clarity and fullness. Together, they allow this smaller bodied guitar to deliver a big sound.
The satin finished neck is constructed from solid Mahogany and features a comfortable shallow C profile. The fretboard is Ebony and features an inlaid Faith ‘F’ at the 12th fret.
The headstock features an Ebony veneer inlaid with the Faith logo. This also is fitted with a set of gold Grover Rotomatic tuners with Ebony buttons.
Featuring an all-over High Gloss finish on the body, the FVHG looks as good as it sounds. Details such as flamed Maple binding, inlaid Ebony bridge pins and an inlaid Abalone rosette help to reinforce its high end look.
On-board electrics come from Fishman with an INK3 Preampand an undersaddle pickup.
To complete the package, the Faith High Gloss Series FVHG Venus comes in a high quality, fitted, Faith hard case.

What a fantastic guitar! I've got some very expensive American made acoustic guitars in my small collection that cost 2x or more than this guitar. but the quality, fit and finish, playability, and sound is very close. The bottom end isn't as pronounced as my Martin D series dread but I wouldn't expect it to be either. Otherwise, the sound is very clear, a few people have said its got a "sweet" sound. I love it for picking, but its not a bad guitar for strumming either. notwithstanding the lack of bottom end compared to a dread. I'd be very interested in trying a bigger bodied Faith though, Also, the pickup and pre amp works well,. and for an under saddle pickup seems to reproduce the acoustic sound of the guitar very accurately. I was also impressed that the guitar came in a very nice hard shell case. I bought this guitar as I wanted something less expensive to take to low key gigs and jams. However, I've just been totally blown away by how good it is. Finally, the guitar itself looks just fantastic. I can't understand how Faith can produce a guitar this good at this price point, and given it's all solid wood I expect it will take a few years for the sound to mature.
