The Venus Lefthanded FVL 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. Faith Natural series were the very first style of Faith Guitar, and are a classic combination of Spruce and Mahogany.
Using high grade Englemann Spruce for the top and satin finished Mahogany for the back and sides, Natural models feature solid Rosewood binding and Macassan Ebony for the fingerboard, bridge, headplate and heelcap. Tonally, this combination of wood is generally warm, sweet and mellow, delivering an overall balanced tone.
This tonal character means that the notes blend together well. Therefore it is ideal for strumming and accompaniment purposes, and when recorded, it sits comfortably in a mix. The guitar is finished with a thin protective lacqeur on the top and satin back and sides. This contrast ensures a good balance between both control and natural resonance.

What we say about the FVL Venus
A solid body guitar with high quality materials and an excellent design results in an excellent guitar. Furthermore it plays brilliantly with a comfortable feel and a huge amount of versatility. In addition the aesthetics are also particularly nice due to the lovely grains that come from mahogany.
