Patrick James Eggle is very much the modern day hero of British guitar design. Not content to just build his incredible boutique electrics, Patrick fronts up Faith, creating a range of innovative and highly desirable acoustics. One of the stand out guitars in this collection is the Faith FVTB Venus Trembesi.
With Solid Indonesian Trembesi back and sides and a Solid Engelmann Spruce top, you get a truly stunning aesthetic. Sitting somewhere between Hawaiian Koa and Mahogany, Trembesi is known for its warm, balanced tone and sparkle at the top end. Favoured by furniture makers because of its highly figured appearance, it's a great choice as a tonewood.
A Mahogany neck boasts an impressive Macassan Figured Ebony fingerboard with the signature Faith mother of pearl 'F' at the 12th fret. With solid Rosewood binding and an Ebony bridge, the Faith FVTB Venus Trembesi feels really organic, it's meticulous design offering the perfect base on which to develop your performance. With a Shadow Performer preamp and Nanoflex pickup, this guitar is ready to hit the stage. Delivering incredible clarity and definition, it's the perfect solution for the gigging musician.
Patrick James Eggle is well known for building guitars of the highest quality and the FVTB Venus Trembesi really pushes the boundaries of performance focussed acoustic guitars.
This guitar is used but in really nice condition. There are several surface marks and some light buckle rash but nothing out of the ordinary for a used guitar.
