Ventura V235S & Ventura V14 acoutics
I recently bought a Ventura V35S, which is a copy of a Gibson Dove in red sunburst. I absolutely love this guitar, it is a LOUD, very warm & rich sounding acoustic, & it is a beautiful copy of a Dove guitar. Also I bought this past week a Ventura V14, essentially a Martin D-28 copy. Anyone out there have a V14 ? I have not received mine yet, it is in shipment but just wondered if anyone else has a V14 or V235S, I would like to hear your opinion. These guitars will probably never be worth very much, most imports are not highly valued, but the Ventura guitars I have personally played & own have all been excellent sounding & playing instruments & they are also nicely crafted, beautiful instruments. I have picked up some big name guitars like Martin & Gibson & played them & they sounded like crap. Just because a guitar has a famous name doesn't always mean it is going to sound good. There are plenty of big name guitars out there that sound crappy. I buy for TONE, playability & looks. The vintage Venturas are some of the best acoustics around with all these qualities.
