More Series 10

I am now the proud owner of 2 more Series 10 guitars, both electric. One is a Strat copy and the other is a Les Paul copy. Beautiful sound and stay in tune just like my a/e. By the way my a/e is red. The finish is deep lacquer with a very high gloss. Don't know if it was buffed with goose feathers but it's sweet looking.

My series 10 guitar is a BEAST!!

I bought my series 10 guitar about 19 years ago and still have it today. I picked it up for $130.00 forit. When I seen it i thought theres no way Im buying a pink guitar but then I picked it up and played it and it was one of the best feeling guitars I have ever played. It has the famous Jackson shark tooth inlays , 1 single coil neck pick up ,1 single center pick up , and a dual humbucker for the bridge. there are 3 , three way switches for each pick up , a floyd rose style floater tremlo , 24 jumbo fret , rose wood fret board , and a short scale. This thing freekin' jams!! I play more heavy stuff than anything and even tuned down to c# it stays in tune no matter how much i beat on it and believe me I do. I have played live with it and its crisp and loud with great tone and sustain that lasts forever. i also play many other styles of music and it works great for it all. If anyone has any info on these guitars please let me know cause I would for sure buy another one if it performed like the one I have now. People laugh at it cause its pink but after its plugged in and busting out ear drums and scaring old ladies they all want to know where to find one.

Series 10 Rick knockoff

I have owned a Series 10 knockoff of a black Rickenbacker 325. Except for the tailpiece, it is a perfect reproduction. It stays in tune - period. The short-scale neck fits perfect into my hands. I own higher quality name-brand stuff and this one is every bit as good and very fun to play

Bentley Guitar

My first guitar was a Bentley "Fender Mexican" knockoff that another guitarist passed on to me to learn on. I played on it for about 3 years stock. The action on the neck was great. I eventually got another guitar to play in E, and started to customize the Bentley for C tuning. I wired in EMG single-coil pickups, swapped to grover tuners, filed the nut to accept Power Slinky's, and repainted it. This was one dirty-ass crunching guitar. Passed it on to a friend who wanted to learn to play about 5 years later when I quit playing.

I now own a B.C. Rich Warbeast, and I love it. I still dream about the guitar that got away though.

Series 10

I'm sorry to dissapoint everyone here that likes their guitars , but series 10 guitars were the "first act" or "jay turser"'of their day. There are a few nicer made models ,but for the most part they just look cool.
Most were made in china , Korea, indonesia . You can't keep track , because most of them had stickers on the neckplate for the serial #'s & got peeled off.
Most have plywood bodies, cheap pickups, & not very stable necks.
If you set it up right, you can have almost any guitar play like butter, but it won't handle the abuse.
Take care of it if it has meaning to you. I still have an old harmony my dad bought me when I was 10.
I set it up for my 7 year old & it plays great. Cheap guitar I would not record with, but great to learn on.

Re: series 10 electric guitar

: I am an owner of 7 Bently/Series 10 electric guitars, one Bently Acoustic/Electric guitar and two Bently Series 10 bass guitars. I also own a gretch, gibson L6-S, and an Ibanez Geo bass guitar. Among them are four LP copies, one Telecaster, and three strat copies. They are all nice guitars I used on stage. Made by St. Louis Music company from the 1980s up until 1998 when they issued them as Austin guitars. Some are with S-10 pickups (SLM pickups). I paid from $31 to $102. Worth the investment but, the professional models were the top of the line.

Re: series 10 electric guitar

Re: series 10 electric guitar

A couple of years ago I bought this strange red guitar at a yard sale in my neighborhood for the astounding price of $3! I didnt know how to play guitar, but I took it home and started messing around. 4 years later I have 4 other guitars including a Gretsch and a Gibson Les Paul. However this weird little red start-style guitar still gets its fair share of playing. For some reason I really like how the guitar feels. I am currently in the process of putting some money in it to fix it up. I think it will be really nice!

I asked a teacher of mine about the brand and he told me that they are a japanese guitar company that was really big in the 80's. This is just what he told me but I guess he could be wrong. They arent very common any more and nobody really seems to know about them. So glad to hear from somebody else who has one!

Re: series 10 electric guitar

I picked up a Series 10 bass about a decade ago, which I got because it was the cheapest lefty bass I could find. It cost me around $150, and it turned out to be a pretty decent instrument. No frills, but solid sound & construction. All I know for sure is that it was made by a company called "Bentley". There seems to be no reliable info about them on the Web, though other owners have hinted that they may have been bought out, possibly by Jackson guitars. As for pricing, they're probably not worth too much, but most of the folks who own them seem pretty happy with them, so - who knows?

Re: series 10 electric guitar

My first guitar was actually a series 10 version of a danelectro. It was a good guitar, had 2 single coil pickups and great tone, the body was heavy as hell, but the only downfall was that the electronics in it were very shabby. Mind you this was about 9 years ago. I just wish I had that guitar now, cause I've had my fair share of guitars since then, but not one with that same incredible tone. So I know they exist, but like you I can never find any information on them.

Re: series 10 electric guitar

I am the owner/founder of series 10 guitars and im here to tell you, they are all worth in the upper thousands. There were only a few thousand made and i dont know why people are finding them soo cheap around. If you can find a red one, hold on to it, they're worth the most beacause theyre painted with mercedes paint and buffed with goose feathers. One in good condition should sell for $2000 or so dollars.

Red Series10 Guitar

I gave 60. for this guitar yesterday and have been trying to research it. It has beautiful tone, the only reason I traded for it. It is a candy red color, but of coarse can't find any seriial numbers to go on. I wish I could post a picture here. If it's worth 2000. Then I made one hell of a deal!

I own one and it is in lime

I own one and it is in lime green color, and good condition. I wanted to know how much it worth?

series 10 fan

I am 40 years old and bought my first guitar in 1986 from a local music store. It was a canary yellow Series 10 (the one the blonde in the black dress was holding in all the posters and ads) It was a hardcore instrument that hardly ever went out of tune even when being played like a bass by a kid who knew nothing about them. I ended up trading it for a dirt bike and regretting it ever since. Recently a friend of mine who is a craigslist surfer and guitar collector/ excellant repairman aquired on for $30 from a guy who was going to throe it out. It looked like crap from improper care, but he cleaned it up stuck some strings on it and it played just fine. It's a Seafoam green painted double pickup. Not a scratch on it. I traded him a pair of vintage Acoustic mains for it and he is adjusting the bridge and fine tuning it for me as we type. I am so glad to add this one of a kind piece to my collection!

Bently Searies 10 guitar (like flying v body)

I am getting conflicting ciews on these guitrs. I have a cream with red stripe following the design of body guitar. It has dual humbuckers, tunamatic wah-wah bridge on it, tow knobs and 1-3 way switch on it. Says Series 10 by Bently, S.# Sl85060072 pn sticker on back of guitarunder keys. I suspect it might be one of those talked about maybe made in China etc. But we really don't know. It really sounds great and plays very well. Any infomation would be appreciated. Thanks!

If you are the owner/founder then I will buy you out for $1 in advance my fellow madman. Series 10 guitars were made by Bently and sold by St Louis Music. Some of the early models were assembled in America but most were korean made. Nice players and very well built. Cheaper models were laminated(plywood) and the Pro models were solid wood. Bolt on necks and so so pickups and electronics but very nice players.

PLEASE HELP ID

I recently bought this crackle painted Professional model serial number 881635 -does that mean it was made in 1988 and what country?

bently

I bought one from a guy with alligator hard case made of solid mahogany or rose wood its a tad heavy but it rocks,Payed 45$ I'm a crook.

Re: series 10 electric guitar

I've had a series ten guitar for a few years. I love it, and play it daily. I bought it for fifty bucks, though, and that included an amp, cable, and a little chord book. Pretty sweet deal. I love this guitar. The amp I got is kind of shitty though.

Re: series 10 electric guitar

I also just foud one of these. A les paul copy. Played it at guitar center and bought it for 99.00. Mind you I play a custom edition fender strat with a band and was looking for somthing just cheap to mess with. This thing played pretty good. Cant pick it up till the police check is ok'd though. From the setup it looks like someone who knew how to play at least fairly good had it. Cant wait to plug it in to my Hd147 line 6 amp.
