NAMM 2021 isn't taking place in the physical realm this year, but you'll find all the hottest January gear launches in our guide to the biggest guitar, amp and pedal releases of 2021 so far.

Faith Guitars has announced the Venus Blue Moon acoustic guitar.

Expanding the company's Blue Moon line – which until now only featured the Neptune Blue Moon – the new addition features an OM cutaway shape, and is constructed – like the Neptune – of translucent blue-finished mango tonewoods from the Java island of Indonesia.

The guitar also boasts flamed maple binding, Macassan figured ebony fittings, and a mahogany neck with a Macassan figured ebony fingerboard.

Electronics come by way of a Fishman INK3 preamp system with a Sonicore under-saddle piezo pickup. Controls include volume, a three-band EQ and a chromatic tuner.

Both right- and left-handed versions of the Venus Blue Moon are available to order now for $1,249 and $1,279, respectively. For more information, head over to Faith Guitars (opens in new tab).
