The Naked Venus FKV12 is a aolid 12-string guitar from Faith. The naked series are made with a combination of Mahogany and Spruce.
Faith Naked Venus 12-String Electro/Cutaway FKV12
The Venus FKV12 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.
The Spruce top and Mahogany body of each of the Faith Naked instruments is 100% solid tonewood. As is the case for all guitars from Faith. However, the cosmetics and non-essential dressing has 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. Therefore the tone d elivered is far beyond what is normally expected at this price level.
12-String guitars double up the strings on a regular guitar to provide a richer, more ringing tone than a regular 6-string Guitar.
- This model is fitted with the Shadow Performer Tuner Preamp / Shadow Nanoflex Pickup.
- This is the 12-string version of the Faith Naked Venus FKV.
What we say about the FKV12 Venus
The Naked Venus is cheaper than plenty of other Faiths from different series. But where you save money in extra aesthetics and other extras, you do not lose anything in tone or quality. Still a solid body instrument with fantastic design and construction, you’re getting a fantastic guitar for the money. For all solid guitars at a reasonable price, the Faith Naked series is surpassed by none. With 12 strings, the tone is full and resonant.
