FAITH BLOOD MOON VENUS
RRP: $1,850 • cmcmusic.com.au
The Venus Blood Moon is a beautiful instrument that uses only the finest, figured Javanese trembesi for the top, back and sides. This indigenous Indonesian timber has long been used by furniture makers for its stunning appearance, but we have been convinced of its tonal properties for a good while too. Not unlike Hawaiian koa, a solid trembesi instrument reacts in a similar way to mahogany, delivering warmth and balance across the strings, while still having a little rosewood-eque sparkle at the top end.
The exclusive Blood Moon burst finish and solid flamed maple binding serves to enhance its stunning appearance further. Each guitar will have its own distinct figuring: some with straight, pronounced verticle grains; some with horizontal ‘flaming’; and even some with a combination of the two. But regardless of the individual figuring of each model, the tone will be wonderful, and the appearance will be truly unique.
