Here for sale we have a Faith FV Venus Cutaway electro-acoustic guitar in Natural finish. This guitar features a Solid Engelmann Spruce top in gloss, Solid satin Mahogany neck, back and sides, a Macassan Ebony fingerboard with a 16 radius, a single mother-of-pearl inlay at the 12th fret, and jumbo frets, Grover Rotomatic Gold machine heads along with a Macassan Figured Ebony bridge and bridge pins.This guitar plays very well, its body size feeling somewhere near an OM/Auditorium shape while having a bit more heft to bring out tones reminiscent of larger guitars. Its lower bout measures at 15 which sits comfortably in your arms and the neck meets the body at the 14th fret, cutting away there in a fairly flat manner, a shape Faith have become quite well known for. This gives you unparalleled access to the upper frets, letting the guitar get out of your way so you can express yourself freely. The tone of this guitar is full and punchy, its solid Engelmann Spruce top delivering plenty of mid-range clarity.
The scalloped x-brace design allows the guitar to resonate freely as the reduced mass of the bracing restricts the soundboard less. Model - FV Venus Cutaway.
