Sound and Feel
The Venus series is a staple of their line-up, with its medium-sized OM/Auditorium-style body offering versatile and balanced tones. The all-mahogany construction of this guitar means that it produces sound full of warmth with plenty of bottom-end, supporting a vocal perfectly.
The gloss finish on the body and neck gives this guitar a classy and elegant aesthetic, with a traditional vintage feel. A single-cutaway design means that you can easily access the upper frets, if playing some high-register lead parts is something your music requires! The gloss finish brings out the beautiful mahogany grain, so you'll feel inspired to pick up and play this gorgeous instrument. An Ebony fretboard adds a further element of finesse, not only giving the guitar a high-end look but feeling smooth and fast under your fingertips. Ebony also blends well with the mahogany body and neck, to deliver a balanced tone with a solid mid-range that will let you cut through.
