The Faith FECV Eclipse Venus electro-acoustic guitar from their renowned Eclipse series uses a black, lacquered solid engelmann spruce top matched to black, lacquered solid mahogany back and sides.
A branded hard case is also included
Patrick James Eggle explains:
The Eclipse series addition of an all-over lacquer to the spruce/mahogany combination helps to deliver a more controlled and focussed tone. This makes the Eclipse series ideal as a stage performance instrument.
The black colour is actually part of base coating process, with a thin layer of lacquer applied on top. As with all Faith guitars, we never apply the lacquer so thick that it restricts the sound, rather we allow the thin layer of lacquer to sink into the grain of the wood a little, ensuring the wood is free to move sufficiently and deliver its’ true acoustic voice.
