I searched around online for a good deal, but I kept coming back to Richard’s Guitars. The clincher was seeing the meticulous attention to detail that goes into every guitar that they sell, setting up your guitar to your own specifications and even cosmetic checks. I was impressed. Richard himself was incredibly accessible through live chat (even at crazy hours) and was willing to speak to me on the phone personally even at a time when he had much more pressing matters.
I had to wait a while for delivery, but the stunning guitar that arrived made the wait worthwhile. An incredibly beautiful instrument, perfectly set up and that plays like a guitar at least three times its cash value. The stereo pickup is fantastic and the build quality is exceptional for the price. My band mate was so jealous that he immediately put two of his guitars up for sale and ordered a Faith himself!
I hope to have this guitar for a long, long time, but when I eventually need another, I won’t hesitate to buy another Faith, and nor will I hesitate to buy it from Richard. Phenomenal guitars with phenomenal service.
I haven't had much time to play my new Faith Venus but I've really enjoyed the couple of hours I've spent with it. I do have one problem with it, however - and it might just be me - but I can't get the battery cover on the preamp to shut properly; it won't shut so that it's flush with the casing. The cover actually seems too big but I doubt that that's the case. I've also asked someone else to have a go but she couldn't close it with a flush fit either. Any ideas, please? I'll send a proper review once I get this problem sorted out. Thanks, Kirby
