  • Description: This is a Gibson made Ventura. Although it was manufactured in Japan it is not the Bruno copy. I have always used light/ med strings and always tuned it to open E. The bridge is still strong as ever. It has mahogany sides and back with matched book leaf pieces used. The top is fine grained spruce. The neck is select mahogany and the rosewood fingerboard has inlaid mother of pearl position marks. It has an adjustable rosewood bridge which is nice. Notice the inlay around the top and sound hole. Another nice touch. And the headstock is overlaid with Jacaranda rosewood. I have the action set so low on it that ppl can’t believe how easy it is to play. It’s hard for me to play 6-string anymore because I can’t find one that has this close of action. My fingers start hurting after a few minutes, but I can play this thing for an hour or two with no pain.
