Faith Naked Venus Cutaway Electro-Acoustic Guitar (Black Stain) builds upon the acclaimed Naked series of Faith acoustic guitars. This thru-black model delivers the same rich sonic performance you would expect from an all-solid wood guitar but is enhanced by the special finish and coordinated black fittings and hardware. The hand-rubbed stain results in a unique look to each guitar. Further to this, Spruce and Mahogany have differing cellular structures, so there is natural variation in the way that the stain takes to each piece of tonewood. This stunning quirk of nature is especially noticeable on the Spruce top, as in some areas, the black stain will be absorbed more than others, which creates an individual patina to each and every model. Some will be more uniform black, and some will have more wood pattern visible. In keeping with the original Naked series, cosmetics and non-essential dressing have 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 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 great acoustic performance, yet remains small enough for the player to jump around on stage with no problem. This FKVBK model is equipped with Fishman’s Presys1 side-mounted preamp system, complete with an integrated tuner. The output is routed through a jack socket/strap button in the base of the guitar. Faith Naked guitars are supplied complete with a Faith padded gigbag.
