Ventura Super 80 Bass

Ventura Super 80 Bass


Quick Overview

Are you individual enough to take on the Ventura bass guitar concept?

If so, you’ll revel in the performance level and tonal options presented by an instrument with true character in an age of often sanitised uniformity. The Ventura’s elegantly shaped, form-fitting body is skilfully assembled from two pieces of American alder, precision matched to a Canadian rock maple neck with gentle 12” radiussed rosewood fingerboard, equipped with a complement of 22 jumbo frets.

Afficionados of classic bass tones will positively revel in the Ventura Super 80’s eclectic pickup layout; a bridge mounted Fret-King double-polepiece single coil unit; centrally-positioned split double-polepiece single coil; and just check that mighty hunk of tone-filled metal-cased double coil magnificence situated at the end of the neck... 

And you can quickly select some very unique-toned pickup combinations via the easily-accessed 5-way lever, offering a real performance edge that is simply unavailable anywhere else, thanks to those gorgeous, full-toned Fret-King units. From funky fingerpops to a full-on rocking roar, you can blend any combination of these pickups to suit the musical mood via the three individual pickup volume rotaries. The Fret-King Blue Label Ventura Super 80 bass. Destined to be a future classic. Here for you now.
