Ventura V-200S Ventura V-200S


Jumbo acoustic guitar made in Japan during the early 70s. It is a very accurate representation of the Gibson J-200. Great condition,nice action, booming sound, and the cherry burst along with the inlay and binding is absolute eye candy.

This is by far the best J-200 copy on the market. It is superior to the Epiphone copies in every aspect. These were going for around $350.00 used in 2004 and everyone who bought one was pleased with the purchase. This particular model of Ventura is a real bargain. It is only a matter of time until these become difficult to locate and shoot up in price. If you can snatch one for $400-$450, don't hesitate. VERY COOL AX!

I've got mine. It was a still on Ebay. Evidently most people are turned off by the Korean made Ventura guitars, causing the association to drive the price down on all Ventura instruments. Also, some of the models made in Japan were cheaply made as well. i.e. most bolt on neck models suck. The V-200S, and the Howard Roberts models were well made. If something were to happen to mine, I would replace it right away.

My son-in-law owns one of these guitars. I have an early 70s Gibson J-200 that doesn't sound as good. Of course, the 70s Gibson guitars are not the cream of the crop. They started getting their act back together in the 80s. My son-in-law also added a bone nut and saddle with a professional set-up. I've never understood why guitar companies don't use bone to begin with. If we can pick up a blank bone saddle for $6.00, just think what the price would be on ten thousand ($2?). The bottom line is cheap mass production now-a-days. I miss the old days when craftsmanship was at the top of the totem-pole. Ventura turned out some cool guitars in the 70s However, as another person already pointed out, the bolt on necks were not the best. It seems like Fender is the guitar manufacturer that can get by with a bolt on neck. We expect more every one else.

These guitars are not appreciated in the blue book, nor do they fetch much on Ebay. I would like to snatch one up before they sky-rocket like everything else on the market.

I bought mine back in the 80s and fully intend to keep it. Great guitar!

I'm curious about the time period. Mine looks exactly like the pictured. I bought mine new in the early 1980s. Anyone have a serial number breakdown to denote the date?

The pics are blurry. Just wondering if the owner can upload some new examples.

John don't post dollar amounts in the future. These guitars can be picked up for much less in many cases. We don't need to make it even more difficult to find a bargain in a world gone crazy. I saw a Fender vibro-champ listed for $600.00 the other day. People need to pull their head out of their a** and return to reality. Fender champs are cool, nostalgic,and look nice on in the living room. They are not worth $600.00
