If you’re looking for a great sounding guitar, which is small enough to let you jump around on stage, but big enough to give huge acoustic performances, then you should meet the Faith FV Natural Venus Cutaway.
The Faith FV Natural Venus Cutaway is the guitar model that turned Faith into an iconic brand. With more and more big-name players turning to Faith, it is definitely safe to say that this is a brand that has taken the world by storm.
Locally we have musicians like Louise Day, Amy Jones, and Jesse Jordan who each plays a Faith.
The Faith FV Natural Venus Cutaway can be described as the perfect compromise between a classic OM and an Auditorium body shape. This gives the guitar a perfect balance between depth of sound and ease of playing.
The Faith FV series has been designed to offer both visual and aural beauty. So your audience will take notice of you before you even play your first note.
The wood of your acoustic guitar is one of the most important elements of its construction. That is why is so important to try a few before you buy. Certain woods might sound better to you than others.
The Faith FV Natural Venus Cutaway does not disappoint in the wood department.
It has a high-grade Englemann Spruce top with Solid Mahogany for the back and sides. The combination of a Spruce top with a Mahogany back and sides is one of the most loved and commonly found tonal pairings for acoustic guitars.
The Mahogany adds warmth and stability, while the Spruce adds balance and brightness. With this combination of woods, you will be in full control of your expression.
Of course, if you can carry your expression through to your amp once the guitar is plugged in, what’s the point?
Faith has not dropped the ball here. Models made before 2017 all feature the Shadow L4020HEX Stereo Preamp and Shadow Nanoflex 6 Pickup.
Models made during 2017 and after will all come with Fishman electronics.
