There’s been a number of recent exciting announcements from Faith Guitars (distributed by Barnes & Mullins) … We’ll catch you up!
Faith Guitars release new Hi-Gloss Venus ‘Percussive’ guitar – designed for fingerstyle & 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.
Faith Guitars are pleased to announce the release of more new additions to their award-winning Naked Series
Black Stain models feature solid Engelmann Spruce tops with solid Indonesian Mahogany back and sides, all enhanced by a hand-rubbed ‘thru black’ stain finish, accentuating the unique grain of each model. Cedar/Mahogany models combine solid Cedar tops with solid Indonesian Mahogany back and sides for an exciting tonewood twist that results in a darker, mellower tone.
In line with all other Faith Naked guitars, each guitar is stripped of all non-essential decoration for a natural charm that allows the tonewood to be almost entirely unrestricted in its resonant movement – resulting in a superior tone delivery. Additional features include Mahogany necks, Indonseian Ebony fingerboards, bridges and pins as well as special black precision chrome machineheads to complement the darker aesthetics.
Each guitar is fitted with on-board Fishman electronics in the form of Isys-T systems on Venus models and discreet Sonitone soundhole systems on non-cutaway Neptune models – each combined with Fishman Sonicore undersaddle pickups.
All new Faith Naked Black Stain and Cedar/Mahogany guitars retail from £449 and are available in stores now.
Faith Guitars launch new Nexus Series guitars
Nexus series guitars are the culmination of the British acoustic brand combining elements from their award-winning and most popular guitar ranges to create a new series of instruments aimed at players seeking a striking, high quality instrument at an affordable price.
Initially available in two models – an OM Cutaway/Auditorium ‘Venus’ and a larger baby-jumbo ‘Neptune’ – Faith Nexus models feature solid Mahogany tops, back and sides. Taking characteristics from the hugely popular Naked Series, Nexus guitars are free of unnecessary cosmetic flourishes, instead relying on the tonewood’s natural variations, and the hand-applied Cognac or Copper-Black stains to add visual appeal. A high gloss lacquer finish not only highlights the Mahogany’s natural beauty, but also adds a layer of physical protection.
Additional high-end features include Mahogany necks, Macassan figured Ebony fingerboards, bridges and pins and precision black machineheads. Each guitar is fitted with on-board Fishman electronics in the form of Isys+ systems on Venus models and discreet Sonitone soundhole systems on non-cutaway Neptune models – each combined with Fishman Sonicore undersaddle pickups.
Faith Nexus Series Neptune guitars retail for £619 with their Venus counterparts available in stores now for £649. Faith have also confirmed a left-handed Nexus Venus Copper Black model will be available in early 2018.
