Faith Guitars release new Hi-Gloss Venus ‘Percussive’ guitar
Faith Guitars have announced the release of a new version of their award-winning Hi-Gloss Venus guitar aimed at fingerstyle and percussive guitarists.
The Faith Hi-Gloss Venus Percussive (FVHG-PERC) features an advanced Fishman INK Body preamp system which fuses the clarity of a traditional undersaddle piezo pickup with the tonal richness of a body sensor, located under the bridge plate. The revolutionary new body sensor allows for much greater note expression when playing fingerstyle, whilst also delivering a multitude of sonic effects when tapping and slapping various parts of the body.
Featuring a low-profile discreet design that comprises a 3-band EQ, clear tuner display, a notch filter control and a brilliance control, the Fishman INK Body system offers the very best in tone control. An all-important ‘body’ control located on the preamp fascia allows players to dial in the under-bridge pickup alongside the piezo pickup for full control over the level of percussive elements heard in the mix.
Voted ‘Best Acoustic Guitar 2012’, the Faith Hi-Gloss Venus matches a solid Engelmann Spruce top with solid Rosewood back and sides – with an all-over high gloss finish. Further high-end fittings come in the shape of a satin Mahogany neck and Macassan Figured Ebony fingerboard, bridge and pins. The new Percussive model is available in stores now, retailing at £1049.
