The HiGloss Venus FVHG is a uniquely shaped instrument from Faith Guitars. The HiGloss series is made with high-grade Englemann Spruce and Rosewood.
Faith HiGloss Venus Electro/Cutaway FVHG
The FVHG was voted the UK’s Best Acoustic Guitar 2012!
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.
Both visual and aural beauty are key in the design for the Faith HiGloss series. They are made with high grade Englemann Spruce for the top and highly-figured Rosewood for the back and sides. HiGloss models also 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. Therefore lending itself to fingerstyle and solo pieces in particular.
- All solid wood guitar.
- Hardcase included.
- This model is fitted with the Shadow Performer Tuner Preamp / Shadow Nanoflex Pickup.
