Get past the looks and this is a guitar that's built to sound just as amazing as anything you'll hear elsewhere.
The Ventura 80 features a two-piece centre-jointed American alder body and Fret-King's 60s profile rock maple neck, with a 22-fret, 25 1/2" scale length and 10â€ radius rosewood fingerboard. By utilising an original spec, small diameter truss rod, there is a much greater ratio of wood to metal, retaining all that elusive 'vintage tone'.
Superb quality Gotoh tuners replicate the style and light weight of the original Kluson tuning keys. Height-adjustable tuning posts provide the perfect break angle for each individual string to rest in the self-lubricating Wilkaloid top nut, ensuring absolute minimum string friction.
These unique tuners also feature posts which lock automatically as the strings are brought up to pitch, eliminating excess string winds, making string changing a breeze and keeping your guitar in tune even with heavy vibrato use.
Keeping a vintage guitar in tune can be a nightmare, so all Fret-King Ventura series guitars are fitted with the Wilkinson VSV high-performance vintage vibrato system. Built to exacting standards, the VSV really is the icing on the cake.
The Ventura 80's twin '˜vintage voiced' solid nickel silver covered Fret-King Alnico V double coils, complete with its three-way toggle switch and single tone and volume controls, let you tap into the sounds of psychedelia, from garage to stadium, producing an awesome and easily exploitable power. A fitting and luxurious testament to the spirit and creativity of those original pioneering West Coast guitarists.
