Bently Guitar Info

Posted by Y not on Sun, 11/07/04 - 13:16:53.

I own a Bently model 5118 12 string acoustic guitar. Bought it for $275 in 1999. Picked it up played it for 10 seconds and had to have it. I am yet to meet a guitar player that didn't remark WHAT A SMOOTH PLAYING 12 STRING !!!!!!!! NEVER FELT A 12 STRING THAT PLAYED SO SWEET!!!!!!! Regardless of the monitary value this Guitar is by far the best feeling, playing & sounding 12 string that my fingers have ever known, wouldn't sell it for the world. I never cared for a 12 string prior to owning this one and have never felt another acoustic or electric 12 string no matter the price that feels and plays so good.

Bently Model 5150W Acoustic Guitar

Have a white Bently Model 5150W Acoustic Guitar. Wondering what it is worth. It's a cutaway in good shape. A small nick in the finish in one spot.

BENTLY SERIES 10 ELECTRIC GUITAR

I have a solid body electric guitar that is dark wood maybe mahogany it is a very heavy guitar

I cannot find a model no. on this guitar the serial no. is 2226 and it says it was made in Korea

It says series 10 by BENTLY on the head stock I bought this guitar in the mid 80s it still has the

of the music store where I bought it all of the comments I have seen on this website have said
nothing about a solid body Bently series 10 electric guitar if anyone knows anything about this
guitar or where Imight find the model no. I would greatly appreciate it there is a off and on switch
and two black knobs at the lower bottom and it is six strings I bought this guitar in the mid 80s
and it has never been played .

bently model#5106s

i picked up this six string for 5 BUCKS!!! got it a yard sale of course. But it is really beautiful. Unfortunately I am guitar illiterate,and am just now about to self school myself on how to play.(at the ripe old age of 49!! ha!) I am sure that I got a great deal on my guitar. I'm just not sure just HOW GOOD I don't know. I just knew I had to have that pretty thing for 5 bucks!! Now I've got to learn how to play me some "Sweet Baby James"! (for you youngsters out there,that would be James Taylor.HA!) If anyone knows the true value of a 5106s in exellent condition,please let me know. Thanks. ROCK ON!!!

: I Just purchased abently 5104 at an estate sale and wonder what is worth?

Re: Bently Guitar Info

Any suggestion that Bently guitars are somewhat higher end guitars like a gibson, martin or taylor are non-sense. I bought one approx. 4 years ago for $15. Not a bad deal in a pinch to have an acoustic guitar. I was offered a Bently last month for $30 and walked away.

Re: Bently Guitar Info

Bently is not to be confused with high end guitars.

Re: Bently Guitar Info

I have a Bently 6 string model 5108 it is 35 to 45
years old does someone k+no how much it would sell mint condition.

Re: Bently Guitar Info

I bought my Bently 5135 new in 1988 at Bibb Music in Macon, GA. It is a flat-top acoustic 6 w/dark finish and a generous cutaway. I bought it becuase of the cutaway so I could play acoustic leads. It has been my only acoustic and I have played it exclusively ever since. I love it and everyone who tries it out loves it too. Great neck, great action, wonderful sound, just an outstanding guitar overall. I shaved down the bridge so low that the neck started to warp so I had it serviced a few years ago, and it came out sweeter than ever. I just put new strings on it today and it's nearly good as new. They aren't worth a whole lot as far as I know, so if you find one in good shape and you like it, snatch it up and you won't be disappointed.

Re: Bently Guitar Info I just bought one and winder what it might be worth on the market?

I just bought a Bently 6 string guitar today at an Auction for 75 dollars. I was wanting something to be able to "abuse" a little more than the guitar that I have right now. Did you guys that bought your guitar for ~250 buy it from a store new or was it a pawn shop. I am also interested how my "new" guitar is worth.

Re: Bently Guitar Info

oops! I ment to be a follow-up- (first timer at this sight sorry!)
I own a dozen gutitars, from an 8-string classical to a five string frettless carvin bass. I too, have never gotten into 12 string gtrs, nor heard of Bently untl yesterday. Though not a 12 string (which sounds like they make a great 12er, I'd like to try one!)& a buddy owed me $30 & came by with a Les Paul style guitar. I owned a heavy version of a copy of this type of axe in the past, but it broke. And after a friend of mine bought an Epiphone one which sounded great, I said to myself I need one for my collection(I give all my guitars equal play, not just dust collection). Coincidently I got the phone call about settling the debt & said I'll check it out. The neck alone on the thing is beautiful. Mind you, most of my guitars are custom built, but this one plays well. -Just need to drop some new electronics, but worth the investment. I'll probably play some Death Metal on it. Any suggestions as to restoration of pick-ups anyone?

Re: Bently Guitar Info

_I am writing to you because I too, have a Bently, inside it reads Model 5123. I've no clue if it is a good guitar, a starter's guitar, or whatever. I am learning toplay now on another guitar, but I want to fix the hardware on the Bently, because I like how it looks, dark, and mysterious. It may sound good. Any information you have will be helpful, and thanks. _______________________________________________________
