The 12 string Faith FKV12 Naked Venus Cutaway features all-solid construction - supplied in a padded Gig Bag

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. What remains unusual however, is finding a smaller bodied guitar in a 12 string guise. The Venus 12 remains remarkably easy to play, and will deliver that special 12 string sound with gusto.

The Venus shape is big enough to deliver a great acoustic performance, yet remains small enough for the player to jump around on stage with no problem.

The Spruce top and Mahogany body of each of the Faith Naked instruments is 100% solid tonewood – in keeping with all other Faith series. 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, so the tone delivered is far beyond what is normally expected at this price level.

The Naked Venus 12 string is equipped with a Fishman Presys1 preamp system and Sonicore undersaddle pickup. Each Naked guitar is supplied with a padded Faith Gigbag.
