Guitar World Verdict

Stage-ready with a balanced sound and a feel that will welcome a wide range of styles, the Blue Moon Venus is another fine addition to the Faith lineup.


  • +

    Unusual but visually appealing acoustic.

  • +

    A sound very much its own.


  • -

    Dark and moody might not be everyone’s cup of tea.

Way back in the spring of 2020 we looked at a Faith Blue Moon Neptune, declaring at the time that it had a “shelf-load of virtues” in the tonal stakes. With this acoustic guitar we’ve travelled a few planets closer to the sun, but the basic concept is really very similar. 

The Neptune introduced us to figured mango as a body wood, a theme that is continued here. Obviously this is a new voice in the acoustic field and, tone being a desperately subjective thing to describe, we’ll turn to Faith’s official voice on the matter.
