Vintage Ventura Bruno V10 acoustic guitar in super condition. I have attempted to show condition issues as well as action height in my pictures.
Solid spruce top, mahogany back and sides with celluloid binding, mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard.
Very nice condition, just a few light scratches/scrapes.
Ventura guitars were manufactured in Japan and Imported/branded by C. Bruno of New York in the 1960s and 1970s, before being purchased by Kaman music around 1980. Based on catalog scans available online, this guitar looks to be made later than 1968 and earlier than 1982. The 1968 catalog shows the V10 with a larger headstock and squared-off pickguard, and the 1982 catalog shows a pointed headstock. Catalogs in between these dates show this guitar’s combination of smaller, squared headstock and rounded pickguard.
Great chance to own an antique Japanese quality acoustic at a fair price.
