Ventura 80

Ventura 80


Quick Overview

The Ventura 80's twin vintage voiced solid nickel silver covered Fret-King Alnico V humbuckers, three-way toggle switch and single tone and volume, let you tap into the sounds of psychedelia, from garage to stadium, producing an awesome and easily exploitable power.
A fitting testament to the spirit and
creativity of those original pioneering West Coast guitarists.

Daring to look different, the Green Label Ventura could be a styling studio prototype straight out of the 60s.

Ventura makes a statement about your individuality working live, on stage or in the studio!

As Trev observes, "Unlike some of the guitars from way back then however, the unique offset Ventura design benefits from hardware and pickups that actually work!" "You'll sound great and stay in tune on stage or in the studio, with a winning combination of function, style and sound in one cool package."

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 Magnum locking 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 Green Label Ventura guitars are fitted with the Wilkinson VSV high-performance vintage vibrato system you will not believe the tuning stability of the VSV. It really is the icing on the cake.
