Highly acclaimed, British acoustic guitar brand, Faith Guitars, has added a limited edition Blood Moon Venus electric-acoustic guitar to its award winning line-up of products.
This OM style electro cutaway continues the tradition of Faith Guitars by using innovative tonewoods for both sonic variety and aesthetic impact.
The top, back and sides of the Venus Blood Moon is made from Javanese High-Figure Trembesi. Tonally, it is similar in timbre to a solid mahogany instrument, but benefits from a slightly more pronounced treble response.
“We have been blown away by the beauty of these Blood Moon instruments”, comments Alex Mew, Faith Guitars’ brand manager. “Although we have used attractive Trembesi on the back of previous instruments, we discovered that there were locations from which we could find the most incredibly figured timbers. This class of figure is highly-prized by woodworkers, and so we set about testing it as a sole tonewood for guitars. Delighted with the sound, Patrick Eggle and I worked on finding the right colour palette to further enhance the natural appearance, and after a few trials, the Blood Moon Burst was finalized.”
Once the select high-grade wood wanes, this limited edition model will withdraw from the line-up. Each Venus Blood Moon model is complemented by solid Flamed Maple binding, Ebony Fittings and a Faith Hardcase.
