Faith Naked Series FKV Venus Electro Acoustic Guitar

What We Think 

 

The Naked series from Faith guitars have become a firm favourite with many guitarists, because of their “nakedness” of cosmetic additions and non-essential features. All the models are 100% solid tonewoods and offer fantastic playabilty. The FKV Venus model is a cutaway electro model, a great model for those looking for a quality instrument for live work. The top is solid Engleman spruce and is complimented by solid Mahogany back and sides , the guitar is finished in a durable satin . For live work the guitar has a built in Shadow performer tuner and preamp and the pickup is a quality Shadow Nanoflex. With the overall solid build of this guitar and built in preamp system , this guitar is a great all-rounder both for home and stage work.

The Venus edition of Faiths wonderful naked series is the familiar feel of the Venus minus all the trimming that some players may find unnecessary. The naked series is so called due to the very loss gloss finish that allows the wood to resonate with little restriction, creating a warm woody tone. The resonance is enhanced by the Patrick James Eggle X-Brace designed bracing. The body is made up from a solid Engelmann spruce top along with solid Indonesian mahogany back and sides that give the Naked Venus its lovely warm tones. The shadow performer preamp fed by the nanoflex piclup means that this unadorned beauty is ready for the stage or studio.  The closes thing the Naked Venus offers in visual flare is the elegant mother on pearl “F” inlay on the 12th fret. The comfort and warmth of the Naked Venus make it one worth trying and the affordability well that may make it one worth buying.

The Faith Naked series are stripped of pretty much all unnecessary adornments to create an uncomplicated, exposed, high-quality guitar with all the quality expected from Faith but at a more affordable price. This hand crafted, Mahogany and Spruce, Concert Cutaway guitar is one of the most beautiful and natural instruments Faith have created. If your style is raw, natural and clean then the Faith Naked series could be for you.

These naked, stripped back guitar models have been designed to offer the very essence of the Faith brand at a more accessible price point than their other models, an idea extremely appealing to many modern guitarists. 

The Faith brand doesn`t lend itself to a `budget` build though so don`t be fooled into thinking these are anything less than quality guitars. Whilst seeking to make Faith guitars that were more accessible to a larger number of musicians Faith creator, Patrick James Eggle and the rest of the Faith team, set out to strip back their guitar designs whilst still retaining all the key Faith elements. Faith pride themselves on producing hand-crafted, all-solid, immensely resonant guitars and this hasn`t changed with this Naked series.

Hand crafted by skilled Luthiers, this guitar retains the integrity of tone which Faith guitars possess but by removing some of the more fussy cosmetic adornments the FKV Venus is available at a very affordable price. The Naked Venus guitar consists of a Solid Engelmann Spruce top and Solid Mahogany back and sides; a two-stage satin finish all over; a rosewood fingerboard, bridge and head plate; chrome plated Machine heads; and a 2mm abalone sound hole rosette. This Electro Cutaway FKV Venus model also features the same Shadow PerformerTuner preamp and Nanoflex pickup found on the Faith Natural series.

The FKV Venus has a Mahogany back and sides and as such delivers a tone focused on the mid-range. The tonal characteristics would look like a frown if visualised on a frequency curve; lower at the bass, curving up through the middle and dipping again at the top end. The Venus? tone is warm and sweet meaning all the notes blend well together. This makes the Naked series ideal for strumming and accompaniment purposes and means it will sit comfortably in a mix.

Faith believe Satin finished guitars sound livelier as the unrestrained tonewood can move more freely allowing more sympathetic resonance throughout the instrument and creating a more naturally `woody` tone. This tone is equally evident in the Naked Series which has a simple 2-stage satin finish on the top, back and sides letting the guitar breathe and move with no restriction.
