Hey everyone-
i've never played a note in my life but have always wanted to. i just came from a garage sale where they were selling a Ventura Bruno guitar V-1585 (missing one string but otherwise good shape) for $49.
Is this a good guitar?
I'm totally new to the guitar scene, so i can't thank you so much for your time!
p.s. i'm a girl with small hands... anything i should look for in a "learner" guitar?
hugs-
greta

Re: is this a good buy? Ventura Bruno?

never heard of that brand but if the neck is straight and it looks like it is in good condition its probly worth it...everybody starts somewhere and eventually you learn more and more about the way a good guitar should sound and perform like.sometimes people sell guitars that are worth 10 times as much but they have no clue and you get a good deal and at 50$ just the parts are probly worth that much.....its an electric right?

Re: is this a good buy? Ventura Bruno?

It sounds like a decent deal to me. I have a bruno ventura, its a classical. My dad bought it from a friend for $15 in 1970 and passed it on to me in the early 90's. I love it! I've bought other guitars since then but I always end up playing my bruno.

Re: is this a good buy? Ventura Bruno?

I looked around for a while at guitars I saw at resale shops, etc. I used to check ebay and search on google to get an idea as to whether the guitar was a good one or a cheapo.

Last weekend I found a Yamaha FG-140 for $50. Finally, a decent guitar instead of a crappy one...

But yes, the best way to learn is with anything......make sure if fits you well, though.

hth,

I am also completely new to the whole guitar scene as well. I got a guitar from my dad from when he used to play and it is a Ventura Bruno and the model is V-1586. Is it a good type of guitar to play?

Re: is this a good buy? Ventura Bruno?

Greta - I bought my Bruno Ventura guitar in 1966 or '67 in a suburb of Gary, IN called Miller, in a local music shop there, and as I recall I paid $65.00 for it, which for a 14 year old was a bunch of money. I still have it, and have often wondered if it was worth much, so I finally started nosing around the web today, and your message was the first one I ran across.

I have the model V-1586. Frankly, it never was much of a guitar. compared to the Martin's and Gibson's that my friends owned. But they don't have theirs anymore, and I still have mine. The strings buzz more than they should, but I still enjoy playing it on rare occasion, and it's a great campfire guitar. So I hope you bought the one you found, and enjoy it.

Hey Greta,
I have a ventura i bought at a pawn shop in San Antonio. I don't know anything about it and have not been able to find anything on the web about these guitars. Most of my friends that play guitar love it. It has a great sound. It looks to be a model made in the late 60's. I heard the company went out of business a few years ago (20). I paid 50 dollars for mine and i love it. I hope you bought the one you found. If you have small hands, i hope the neck is not to wide for you, use nylon strings if you can because the metal ones will tear up your fingers. LEARN THEM CHORDS, and practice on old country music. (waylon, willie, merle etc...). Good luck with your git-tar...

Re: is this a good buy? Ventura Bruno?

I bought a Ventura Bruno V-10about 20 years ago. I sounds great, It's a 3/4 size with a very thin neck. The Ventura Bruno label was covered with a
Castilla label, which peeled off after a few years. Castilla is a China made guitar, Anyone know how the label thing happened. Thanks Peter

Re: is this a good buy? Ventura Bruno?

Bought a Ventura Bruno CF 80 in 1965. I was 8 yo and still own it to this day. My freinds have gone through several guitars since. I still own mine. As I loked at Gibsons, Martins or Fenders, mine is still a higher quality instrument. Take your time and learn to play. Don't push it, it'll take time and practice, practice, practice.

What?, don't they know who we are?

Hehe, ik dacht ook meteen aan dat beetje invloed op http://getmiscell.topcities.com/

Guitars have been my passion for years now. Bruno ventura is one of the classic in the store. I recommend you to buy it after playing it. Anyways, I have already bookmarked this site for future references as well. check here
