" The Faith FKVCD is stunning. From simplicity of design to its all solid wood construction and ultimately its price. A true benchmark electro acoustic guitar with a warmer toned cedar top"

Building upon the acclaimed series of Faith Acoustic Guitars, these Cedar-topped models deliver the same rich sonic performance you would expect from an all-solid Faith guitar. However, the exciting difference is the Solid Cedar top. This highly respected tonewood, widely used in the classical guitar world, offers the player a darker, more mellow tone, which opens up a whole range of new musical possibilities.

Building upon the acclaimed series of Faith Acoustic Guitars, these Cedar-topped models deliver the same rich sonic performance you would expect from an all-solid Faith guitar. However, the exciting difference is the Solid Cedar top. This highly respected tonewood, widely used in the classical guitar world, offers the player a darker, more mellow tone, which opens up a whole range of new musical possibilities.

Aesthetically, there is further enhancement by way of a richly-stained mahogany back and sides, the trademark satin finish, and special black fittings and hardware.

In keeping with original series, cosmetics and non-essential dressing has been stripped away, leaving the guitars in their natural, state. Pleasing to the touch, the tonewood is almost entirely unrestricted in its resonant movement, so the tone delivered is far beyond what is normally expected at this price level.

The Venus is the now iconic shape that brought Faith Guitars to the consciousness of so many players over the years. The combination of a 15" lower bout and a slimmer depth of body looks to classic OM or Auditorium body-shapes for inspiration, and makes the Venus the perfect compromise. It is still big enough to deliver a great acoustic performance, yet remains small enough for the player to jump around on stage with no problem.

This FKVCD model is equipped with Fishman’s ISYS-T pickup and side-mounted preamp system, complete with an integrated tuner. The output is routed thru a jack socket / strap button in the base of the guitar.

I (Richard) have been involved with Faith Guitars for over a decade - in fact since their conception.

Patrick Eggles personal involvement changed a stylish brand with a few technical issues into the bridging gap (as I call it) between the finest example of what is achievable from production in the Far East and the World Class Furch/Stonebridge guitars (Made in Eastern Europe).

Unlike many guitars in the market Faith Guitars are made by a dedicated team, overseen by Patrick Eggle himself during his many visits to the Factory.  They only produce Faith guitars and they only produce all solid wood instruments.  Quality is at the heart of every guitar.

Faith Guitars geometry is second to none, ensuring we can set up the guitar to your personal specification with ease.  Take a look at the "break angle" of the saddle on your next trip into a guitar shop and you will generally see its superb (If you don't know what the break angle is, just click on my live chat and I will explain - its important!!)

Featuring all solid wood construction and the highest of attention paid to detail Faith Guitars are both visually and tonally superb.

If you need to know anything at all about this guitar or any other acoustic or electro acoustic guitar I sell, please click on the live chat button when available (open most hours) or call during visiting hours.

The FKV by Faith Guitars is an oustanding electro acoustic guitar and a benchmark at the price.  Ideal for anyone looking for a smaller bodied acoustic with benchmark tone.
