Ventura V-13 Acustic Guitar

I have one of these guitars also. I have had it since December 1982. It has the brass pegs, bridge and nut. I am fond of the sustain and sound quality. My family owns many diferent guitars including Martin, Yamaha, Taylor and a custom hand made Blue Ridge Guitar but me and my son keep going back to the V-13 time and time again. It has been a member of the family for 31 years. I used to play songs for my kids when they were young and now they're grown, they play it. I really like D'Addario strings on it, they seem to add a richness to the sound. I have no idea what it's worth monitarily, but it's priceless personally.

Ventura?

Hi,

I have a chance to buy a guitar, which I speculate is a Ventura just because the case it comes in has a band on the bottom of the inside of the case that says "Ventura". Unfortunately, the label on the inside has been taken off. Is there anywhere I can send a pic to assess whether or not I'm getting this at a decent price?

VENTURA BRUNO V 23

I just picked up a Ventura Bruno v 23 and it's beautiful. The pickguard fell off but I'm replacing it with a custom vintage tortoise Hummingbird pickguard with white and gold engraving. It sounds good and loud. I hope it goes up in value and I love that fact that it is from the 1970s.
Very cool guitar.

Re: Ventura V-21

I just bought an acoustic on Craigslist and the lady threw in a free "extra guitar that needs work." It's a Ventura V-21. It needs about $20 worth of nut work, but sounds incredible. She didn't know what she had. I'm doing research on what exactly I now have. Does your V-21 have a brass nut as well as brass pegs?

If you could send a picture that would help. Otherwise look at the label on the inside where it reads "Ventura Fine Fretted Instruments, under that it should read serial number, and under that model number."

Re: I am looking for a Ventura V-35

How do I tell what model mine is?

Re: I am looking for a Ventura V-35

: How do I tell what model mine is?

There should be a sticker on the inside of the guitar that says "Ventura Fine Fretted Instriments" and below that it should say serial number, and below that model number.
It will look differant if it is a Ventura Bruno.

Does anyone know how old it is? and what is it's worth

Re: ventura v-35 how old is it?

It is from the 70's.

I brought my Ventura V-35 to a music store,
and they offered me $100 for it. I think it must
be worth more than that, but not to music stores.

Ventura V-6

Just bought a Ventura V-6 from a pawn shop on July 9 in South GA. I was just hoping to learn how to play a guitar, but now I'm curious about who made the brand, year made, value, and so on. It's actually in good shape, already had new steel strings on it, and sounds great to me (even though I'm a beginner). On sticker inside it has
Model # 49298, Fine Fretted Instruments, Designed in America, Built in Japan. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, John

Re: Ventura V-6
